Jenny Lewis — Celeb Crush
She’s come a long way from her days as the girl of our dreams in ‘The Wizard,’ and she just keeps getting more awesome.
Jenny Lewis is a 36-year-old vocalist who was born in Las Vegas, Nevada to a family of musicians — her mother Linda was a professional singer, and her father Eddie a member of The Harmonica Gang. We don’t know what that is, but Eddie Harmonica
sounds like the coolest man alive.
As a child actress, Jenny appeared in a number of things you definitely watched on TV as a kid, including Jello commercials, ‘Baywatch,’ ‘Growing Pains,’ ‘Roseanne,’ and ‘Mr. Belvidere.’ You probably had a crush on her, even if you didn’t know her name. As a teen, she switched over to the big screen, and so you’ve also seen her in ‘Troop Beverly Hills,’ ‘The Wizard,’ ‘Pleasantville,’ and that movie we weren’t allowed to see, so we watched it in friends’ basements any change we got, ‘Foxfire.’
As an adult, Jenny moved on to music, and was the lead singer for the now defunct but eternally awesome indie band Rilo Kiley in the early 2000’s. After that, she released two solo albums before teaming up with her current boyfriend to form the duo Jenny & Johnny. If Jenny & Johnny ever split, we’ll finally get our chance.
