At 38, Jewel says she's learned to embrace her imperfections.
"I wore prosthetic teeth when filming as June Carter Cash and I found it funny that people thought that in a matter of two weeks, I was somehow able to straighten my teeth!" she says in Health's May issue.
"I don't think that my teeth represent my defiance of the Man ... I just don't like pain, and I never wanted braces," she explains.

The issue of gun violence is an extremely public and political one. But for many, including Jewel, it's also deeply personal.
The singer, 38, has written a short piece on the topic for the 1simplechange website in which she reveals how she plans to help her son Kase deal with the underlying trouble at the root of so many shootings – unchecked anger.
"Anger shootings," she writes, often happen because the shooter never learned to deal with emotional problems in non-violent ways.

When you grow up surrounded by animals, you learn important life lessons, says folk singer Jewel.
"I think animals teach you about love," she tells PEOPLE. "I think it's great to have chores and it's great to take care of something. It's an easy way to teach somebody to not be selfish."
The singer, her husband Ty Murray and their toddler son have learned so much from the 200 cows, 10 horses, two donkeys and five dogs they keep at the 2,400-acre Texas ranch. While little Kase has just learned all the funny sounds the animals make, he's well on his way to understanding what ranch life is all about.

With the teams of 12 in place, coaches Christina Aguilera, Blake Shelton, Adam Levine and Cee Lo Green faced tough decisions Monday night as The Voice's battle rounds began.
But they had help: Kelly Clarkson and Shelton's wife Miranda Lambert assisted Team Blake; Kenneth "Babyface" Edmonds and Ne-Yo advised Team Cee Lo; Alanis Morissette and Robin Thicke helped Team Adam; and Jewel and Lionel Richie guided Team Christina.
Levine picked U2's "Beautiful Day" for Chris Cauley and former Mouseketeer Tony Lucca. Both singers were strong in battle. Cee Lo said Lucca "articulated the song a lot clearer." Blake said he'd choose Cauley because his pitch was spot on. But Levine opted for Lucca saying, "Tony, you blow me away."
