Jewel: “They said I was the chubby Renee Zellweger”

454990105_10 - Jewel: "They said I was the chubby Renee Zellweger"

On her looks and her career:

“I’m pretty lucky. I don’t feel my career has ever depended on how I look, necessarily. Certainly in this industry I’m photographed a lot and I’m on film a lot, but I think my fans have always loved me for who I am. It’s weird, I never thought a snaggle-toothed, big nosed girl from Alaska would [be considered ‘hot’]. But I enjoy it, especially as I’ve gotten older. I’ve just gotten more comfortable in my skin and I wouldn’t trade what I’ve gained in my aging for what I had in my youth … that insecure, scared feeling. When I first came on the scene I was probably 15 or 20 pounds heavier and they said I was the chubby Renee Zellweger. And it’s a hard thing to live through, but I was very dedicated to not developing an eating disorder and very dedicated to not becoming a drug addict because, to me, they weren’t longtime solutions and you have to go on your journey and you have to find that love for yourself.

… says 39 year-old Jewel.

On the most enviable celebrity bodies:

I love J.Lo’s body. I will never have her little waist or her abs, and I’ll never have her booty. But I have other assets, hopefully! I love Beyonce’s body, too. They are healthy, beautiful women. I’ve seen J.Lo gain five pounds, like we all have, and she looks great. She owns it. She’s just like, ‘Yeah, there it is. Boom.’
