After young Johnny Cash’s voice broke into a booming basso profundo, “My mother said, ‘God has his hand on you — don’t ever forget the gift,’” he recalled. “That was the first time she ever called it that. Singing and writing for my voice — that was the gift.” A new documentary, The Gift: The Journey of Johnny Cash, allows the country-music pioneer to tell his story in his own voice for the first time. “We uncovered 60 hours of audio recordings of Johnny sharing the intimate details of his journey,” director Thom Zimny tells Closer.

Now, 30 years after the star’s death at 81 in 1989, Sermak is opening up about the unforgettable life lessons she learned from Bette. “She was so honest and extremely fair,” Sermak, author of Miss D & Me: Life With the Invincible Bette Davis, tells Closer of the famously outspoken actress. “She used to say it might have been easier for her if she had sugarcoated things, because back then a lot of people did that, but she didn’t.” Despite her infamous clashes with Joan Crawford on the set of 1962’s Whatever Happened to Baby…
