Watch Jennifer Lawrence Sing in 'Joy' -- Even Though She 'Hates' Doing It!
By John Boone
We love a Jennifer Lawrence musical moment.
Apparently director David O. Russell does too. First, he had Lawrence lip sync “Live and Let Die” while cleaning/dancing in American Hustle, and, in the duo’s latest collaboration, Joy, his muse performs a duet with costar Edgar Ramirez.
The set-up for the clip is that Joy’s ex-husband Tony (Ramirez) first woos her by convincing her to sing Frank Sinatra’s “Something Stupid” alongside him in a local holiday musical. You could also enjoy it as a whimsical little music video.
Even though she sounds as lovely as ever, the 25-year-old Oscar winner still says she hates singing on camera. And now, she thinks directors hate her -- because they keep making her do it.
"I have this theory that directors hate me," Lawrence, who also sang “The Hanging Tree” in The Hunger Games, told ET. "I hate it, and I have to keep doing it. It's the weirdest thing. I've never once put it out there that I think I can sing or that I even enjoy singing.”
"Now it seems like I keep having to do it in every damn film!" she added.
