Jennifer Lawrence has revealed yet another talent – her surprisingly throaty singing voice.
The 24-year-old was being interviewed by David Letterman when she was asked about a scene in her latest film Mockingjay where she has to sing.
Turns out, Jen isn’t a massive fan of singing thanks to her overly proud mother.
She explained: “I’m like scarred from my childhood because I have a southern mother who would just tell me that I was amazing at everything…but I can’t [sing].
“I have this tone deaf Amy Winehouse like rarrrr voice when I was eight and so I sang in front of the school because I was like ‘I can do that, I can do anything.’”
Giving an example of what she sounded like, Jen burst into song, singing ‘A Holly Jolly Christmas’.
Needless to say, her description was pretty bang on.
She continued: “And my dad laughed for like the entire week. I would hear him around the house going ‘HA HA, have a holly…’ like imitating me. Oh god. I hate it.”
As bad as Jen’s rendition was, we have a sneaking suspicion that she’s not too shabby when it comes to singing these days considering her vocals are used in the Hunger games sequel.
Talking about the experience, Jen positively recalled: “The Hanging Tree [is the song I sang] which is where I felt like going the morning I showed up.
“Yeah [it’s my voice] weirdly. I put my fingers in my ears. I still haven’t heard it but everyone has told me that it’s me. Because I was like, could you please get Lorde to really sing it and I’ll lip sync.”
Clearly she’s not all that bad, then.
