Personal Quote:

I did. I called my attorney. My agent. My manager. I said "You know y'all, you're serious about this? I'm really.. I gotta get out of this. Like, can't they call LeAnn Rimes? I mean she's good" - On trying to get out of the part of June Carter Cash in Walk the Line (2005). See more »

Trivia:
