The 56-year-old is enjoying a new wave of fame thanks in part to the 2010 Runaways biopic, in which she was portrayed by "Twilight" star Kristen Stewart. In 2011 and 2012, she was announced as a nominee for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, but was passed over both times. In late 2013, Jett and the Blackhearts released their 10th studio album entitled "Unvarnished."
