Jennifer Lawrence Becomes A Pop Star As She Makes The UK Top 40 Chart
Oscar winning actress? Check. Top 40 singer? Check.
Jennifer Lawrence can now add chart-topping singer to her CV as she lands at number 29 in this weeks UK midweek chart.
That's right, despite the actress previously claiming she can't hold a note, 'The Hanging Tree' song J-Law so effortlessly sings in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1, has been bought enough times by fans to make an impact in the chart.
The song was written by The Lumineers and composed by James Newton Howard, and features Jennifer's vocals.
Though the star is probably not as pleased as you'd think about the exciting news, having previously revealed the day she sang the song was one of her worst on set.
Speaking to David Letterman about it, Jen said: “The Hanging Tree [is the song I sang] which is where I felt like going the morning I showed up."
She added: “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.”
On why she hates singing so much, Jen added: “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.’”
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.”
Perhaps there could be a duet between her and rumoured boyf Chris Martin one day…!?
