Jewel Ruins Her Beautiful Smile for a Lifetime Movie


Fans always found Jewel endearing, not just because of her amazing musical talent but also for the cute snaggletooth smile.

Well, that signature grin is gone. Yep. The folksy crooner now has a new picture perfect smile. It looks like she fixed her teeth to play June Cash in the Lifetime biopic The June Carter Cash Story. Yea, a flick for that cheesy women's network.

Now don't get me wrong. I love me some Lifetime movies. My all time faves: Confessions of a Go-Go Girl and Cyber Seduction: His Secret Life. (Hey! Don't let the title fool you. Riveting stuff, if not exactly Oscar worthy.)

But was a TV movie worth Jewel doing what she swore she would never do? That crooked smile even inspired her song, "I'm Not Gonna Fix My Teeth." She has even ranted on stage about how she was sick of people asking her about her teeth and suggesting she should get a new set of chompers.

What happened to that cool, down-to-earth defiance? I'll tell you what happened -- Hollywood. It's amazing she lasted this long with even the slightest imperfection. She also dyed her blonde hair dark brown for the role, but that is a temporary fix. My hope is that her new smile is just a bit of movie magic too. You know, a fake set of teeth to make her look more June Carter-ish. Because crooked or not, Jewel's smile was perfect as is.

What do you think of Jewel's new grill?

I think it's a snap-on, not a permanent fix. Relax...

She didnt "ruin" her smile. It is simply a prop of sorts, a fake overlay. She was quoted on it, maybe a little research would have done some good?? She was asked about this already, and was quoted saying she liked her snaggle tooth.....

Yea, thats totally a "flipper" or whatever those fake teeth are called.

I hope that's fake. It would make me sad if she REALLY fixed her teeth.

Are we seriously bitching about the fact that someone ALLEGEDLY fixed their teeth? She's a grown woman, if she wants to fix her teeth, then let her. Also, like Kate said, a little research would have been good... Apparently she didn't really do anything - She just wore a veneer of sorts. I swear, the "reporting" on this site has taken a huge nosedive!!

Straight teeth are always a wonderful asset to anyone's appearance but Jewel's less-than-perfect teeth kinda suited her.

Oh my gosh, she has aged so much since i last saw her.

She looks beautiful no matter what she does. She has inner beauty that shines out! I have been a fan since her 1st album, and own several of her poetry books. She really is a beautiful soul.
