With Jennifer Lawrence’s attempts unveiled, for all to see, via the web this week (she sings in a clip from her new film “House at the End of the Street”), we thought we’d take a look at ten other actors – not necessarily known for their singing skills – who have sucked in their guts, taken a swig of liquid energy and grabbed a microphone at one stage or another.
The “Twilight” starlet joined fellow franchisee Dakota Fanning to warble a tribute to all-girl rockers The Runaways in the film of the same name.
The “History of Violence” actress proved, via some wonderful singing in the movie “Duets”, that she might have a chance juggling a career as both an actress and musician if she choose to… she hasn’t yet.
The late Brittany Murphy…. what a voice she had. You’ll have heard her magnificent singing voice in George Miller’s “Happy Feet”, in which she lent her lungs to Gloria, but also in the comedy “Little Black Book”.
Unless you’re a regular to House of Blues, or are a die-hard fan of the films “King Ralph” or “Blues Brothers 2000” (likely neither) you mightn’t be aware that the jolly giant is actually a decent singer.
Any “Rhinestone” fans in the house?
We know her ex-hubby has an OK singing voice, but what about Katie? How can she hold a tune? Well, you only need to ask her “Dawson’s Creek” co-stars… if they can stand the pain of reliving the event.
Sarah Michelle Gellar
She didn’t have the best set of lungs amongst the “Buffy” cast, but the musical episode ‘Once More with Feeling’ still managed to get the Slayer to hold a rather imposing note…
You’ll likely have heard her singing in a couple of films but “Spider-Man” cutie Kirsten Dunst spent near half the ’90s comedy “Get Over It” singing… not bad at all!
Funny, it doesn’t sound as good out of the shower does it buddy? Bruce sung in an early episode of “Moonlighting” (below) before unleashing that throat again on “Hudson Hawk” in 1991…
Here’s one for the Aussies! Remember Bruce Samazan, the one-time heartthrob of “E Street”? Did you know he could rap? Well, erm….
