Jennifer Lawrence has a hit record. Yes THAT Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer Lawrence is known to hate her own voice, but that didn’t stop Mocking Jay director Francis Lawrence from getting her character to sing in the latest Hunger Games installment.

“JLaw” sings the song The Hanging Tree (written by The Lumineers) in a scene that appears on the soundtrack. It’s landed at number 29 on the UK chart. It sounds like it was a bit of a struggle to get it done:

“She’d probably tell you it was her least favourite day,” director Francis Lawrence tells “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,” he adds with a smile.
