Jennifer Lawrence Triumphs Over Her Fear of Singing with the Help of Letterman

Jennifer Lawrence has proven herself to be one of the most fearless young starlets of her generation–except when it comes to singing.

Maintaining that as a child she was scarred when she realized she had the voice of a “tone-deaf Amy Winehouse,” JLaw admitted to David Letterman on The Late Show that she’s terrified of singing publicly. She then explained to Letterman how she was forced to sing while filming for the upcoming Hunger Games: Mockingjay-Part 1, and the day of her performance wasn’t her favorite on set.

“I do not like singing in front of other people. It’s like, my biggest fear. I cried on set that day,” she said.

Lawrence also joked with Letterman that she was hoping someone like Lorde had been dubbed in over her own voice, but much to her chagrin–her solo singing has been left untouched.

In an attempt to help JLaw overcome her singing phobia, Letterman closed the segment by offering her an opportunity to sing Christmas songs live on national television.

That’s one way to get over your fears.
