Jennifer Lawrence claims her most chilling fear in life is singing, so why is Disney reportedly begging her to be in Frozen 2? Here’s why we think this could be really bad for JLaw’s mental health.
Jennifer Lawrence stunned audiences with her gutsy a cappella version of “The Hanging Tree” in last year’s The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1. In fact, it may have been the most emotionally powerful scene in the movie.
According to HIt Fix, however, Lawrence claims that shooting the scene was “traumatic and awful,” adding, “I can’t stand singing. The idea of singing in front of people is my biggest fear in the entire world. I cried the day that I did that. I was shaking. I was like, ‘I want my mom.’ I’ve never listened to it. When that scene comes on, I plug my ears.”
Wow, that’s a very strong reaction from a performer who seems so fearless. We don’t think she could be any more stressed out! But we guess every star has their Kryptonite and singing seems to be Jennifer’s.
So why is Disney so keen on getting Lawrence for the Frozen sequel? Well, we think because she’s a pretty good singer, even if she doesn’t think so. The only thing we find confusing is that Kristen Bell as Anna and Idina Menzel as Elsa were the perfect combination to create a huge hit. It seems strange that Disney would want to mess with that recipe for success by throwing a new actress into their lucrative winter wonderland.
Also, many Frozen fans feel incredibly loyal to Bell and Menzel and may not want Katniss invading their Nordic adventure world.
So will JLaw do it? We’re guessing she’ll give Disney the cold shoulder since she has two films currently in pre-prodution: David O. Russell’s Joy, about the real-life Joy Mangano — a single mom who became a successful entrepreneur — and X-Men: Apocalypse, where she’ll reprise her role as Raven/Mystique.
