Multi-Talented Stars: Seven Actresses Who Can Do A Lot More Than Act
In the Golden Age of Hollywood in the 1950's and 1960's, almost every second actress could act, sing and dance but nowadays, it is a little more rare. However, with Begin Again in our cinemas next week starring the wonderfully talented Keira Knightley, this got us thinking about some of the other amazingly talented women who can do a lot more than just act. Here are just seven of them.
1. Keira Knightley.
It's certainly a talent that she has been keeping to herself but Keira Knightley can play guitar AND sing as she proves in Begin Again. Double threat!
2. Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Many will know her as the actress who starred in The Mask of Zorro and Entrapment but Zeta-Jones is also an accomplished singer and dancer. Well, this scene in Chicago just proves it.
3. Emma Stone.
We know she is a lady of many talents but when Emma Stone began belting out this number in Easy A, we were completely blown away. She can really sing!
4. Anne Hathaway.
We were aware that Anne Hathaway could sing but she simply took our breath away in the amazing Les Miserables. Let's face it, she just broke everyone's heart.
5. Reese Witherspoon.
Reese Witherspoon picked up an Oscar for her amazing performance as June Carter in Walk the Line and it's easy to understand why. Besides her turn as the country legend, Reese sang all her tracks. Beautiful.
6. Kristen Bell.
We didn't need to be converted as fans of Kristen Bell but Frozen would have definitely sold the deal. Not only did Bell sing all of Anna's songs but she sang them in the voice of a child, teenager and adult.
7. Scarlett Johansson.
Scarlett Johansson has released an album. Honestly, an album. Not only is she a brilliant actress but she has also has an album entitled Anywhere I Lay My Head. On top of that, it's pretty good.
Begin Again will be in cinemas on July 11th.
