Who'd have thought something like this could bring Jennifer Lawrence to tears??
She's an Oscar-winning actress!
Francis Lawrence, the director of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1, revealed that J.Law cried on the set and you'll NEVER guess why!
Because she had to sing!
In the film, Katniss sings The Hanging Tree from Suzanne Collins' book, so OBVI Jen had to sing the song as well.
But even with the help of folk band The Lumineers, she was still terrified to do it!
However, turns out, she had nothing to worry about — gurlfriend can sing!
'She'd probably tell you it was her least favourite day. She was horrified to sing, she cried a little bit in the morning before she had to sing. But she did it and she did it all day – and she hated me for making her do it all day – but she did and it's great. She'll probably never really understand it because she's so sensitive about the singing.
The Lumineers sent the melody over and then we had a vocal coach, who sort of shifted the key for Jen's voice. Then she started working with Jen once or twice – Jen didn't really want to do too much of the training…
I was worried, I really thought we were going to have to do a bunch of pitch shifting, but she sounded great. What you hear in the movie is what she did on the day in the quarry.'
So, now Jen is a brilliant actress, a HIGHlarious person, AND she can sing?
Some people have ALL the luck!
We can't WAIT to hear what she sounds like when the film comes out on the 21st!
