Jennifer Lawrence might deny her musical talents, but there’s a reason why film directors keep having her sing in films. Even after delivering memorable vocal performances in both Hunger Games franchise and the upcoming drama Joy, the actress insists that she doesn’t seek out opportunities to carry a tune. “I've never once put it out there that I think I can sing or that I even enjoy singing,” the Oscar winner told Entertainment Tonight. "Now it seems like I keep having to do it in every damn film!”
Despite her lack of enthusiasm, the born stage performer, who famously danced on top of Billy Joel’s piano alongside Amy Schumer during the singer’s Aug. 27 show in New York, would kill at karaoke. When asked who her dream duet partner would be, the 25-year-old revealed to ET, “The first person that is coming into my mind is Emma Stone. Or I would chose Adele and I would just mouth along with her.” Both are wise choices, as Adele is the current queen of music and Emma showcased her vocal talents late last year when she played Sally Bowles in Broadway’s Cabaret.
Jennifer is busy promoting Joy, her third film working with director David O. Russell and fourth with co-star Bradley Cooper. The movie tells the real-life success story of American businesswoman Joy Mangano, who became a household name thanks to her invention of the Miracle Mop. Jennifer’s performance in the biopic scored her another Golden Globe nomination, her fourth in five years.
