Jewel Fixes Teeth, Goes Brunette For June Carter Cash Role!

by at . Comments

Jewel has completely changed her look - even fixing her famously bad teeth - to resemble the late June Carter Cash for her role in a new film.

In Lifetime's upcoming biopic, The June Carter Cash Story, the four-time Grammy nominee goes from blonde to brunette to portray the singer.

Jewel tweeted the first photo of her makeover on Tuesday, writing, "Here I am as June in my trailer with her blue eyes and perfect teeth."

Director Allison Anders also wrote, "My lovely star Jewel with blue eyes, straight teeth and kick*** wardrobe as June Carter Cash. Ring of Fire."

The upcoming biopic will appear on Lifetime, which is also working on a Casey Anthony movie and one starring Lindsay Lohan as Elizabeth Taylor.

"Many people know about the legendary love story of Johnny and June," Executive Vice President of Programming Rob Sharenow said this week.

"But June Carter Cash has her own epic journey filled with triumphs, tragedies, loves and losses ... we're thrilled Jewel will be playing the title role."

Jewel, 38, became a first-time mom last July to son Kase with her husband Ty Murray. In another first, this is the singer's major acting debut.

She certainly looks the part!
