Myra Lewis--who married rocker Jerry Lee Lewis when she was 13--isn't going to rush out and see "Great Balls of Fire" when it debuts on Friday, especially since she's already lived through it. "I've cried my way across the country on TV and radio during this book tour and I don't know if I could handle it," said Lewis, whose book of the same title was the basis for the movie. "It's too close to me. They might have to carry me out on a stretcher." Dennis Quaid stars as Lewis in the movie and Winona Ryder plays Myra. Lewis says she's seen a few clipsfrom the film and she thinks Ryder did a good job of portraying her.
