Jennifer Lawrence is immensely talented...but the girl can't sing. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay—Part 1 star is the first to admit it, too, and even though she described "singing in front of other people" as "my biggest fear," she hilariously demonstrated her "tone-deaf Amy Winehouse voice" to David Letterman on CBS' Late Show Wednesday. First, though, the 24-year-old Oscar winner admitted she hated singing "The Hanging Tree" in the movie, joking of the song's title, "That's where I felt like going that morning!" "I still haven't heard it," she said of the song. "I put my fingers in my ears...I was like, 'Will you guys please »

Jennifer Lawrence stopped by the Late Show With David Letterman on Wednesday to promote The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 1 after premiering the film in London earlier this week. While we saw her arrive at the Ed Sullivan Theater in NYC wearing a low-cut red frock, Jennifer slipped into a black dress and white blazer for her hilarious interview. Jennifer talked about having to face her fear of singing in public while filming the highly anticipated movie - her character, Katniss Everdeen, sings "The Hanging Tree" to a Capitol cameraman, bringing him to tears - and revealed that since she was 8 years old, she possessed a "tone-deaf Amy Winehouse" voice that her parents made fun of while simultaneously telling her how great she sounded. She and Dave then went on to perform a rousing rendition of "Have a Holly Jolly Christmas." Watch the video above now. »

Alison Thompson: Sales are tougher than ever

15 October 2014 10:00 AM, PDT | ScreenDaily | See recent ScreenDaily news »

During her keynote at Film London’s Production Finance Market, Alison Thompson remarks on the glut of films made today, but also sees some bright spots like the arrival of Netflix.

British sales veteran Alison Thompson said market conditions for sellers are as tough now as they have ever been.

“As we all know, the situation now is just about as bad as it can be,” Thompson said during her keynote speech at the Film London Production Finance Market.

“The television business, which was frankly driving the boom in film for 20 years, suddenly came a cropper so that independent distributors were losing their TV output deals, which were essentially underpinning the business they were doing.

“That, combined with the change to the DVD market - we’ve had a double hit. It has been really, really challenging. In fact, we are working in the most difficult time I have worked in in my entire career.”

Even so, Thompson »

At Least 8 Issues We Have With Lady Gaga's New Tattoo

Not on the right track. Not born this way.

Not on the right track. Not born this way.

Lady Gaga revealed her new back tattoo on Instagram, and we love Mother Monster, but we're not so sure about it. Now, it's her life, her body, and we're not here to bring her down on that front. We're just thinking that maybe she could've kept this ink secret -- like her possibly secret marriage. Here are just a few of the issues we have with Lady Gaga's new tattoo.

Little Monsters please forgive us...

1. Just try getting anything done with finger nails like that.

Once Again, style over function.

2. Pinky fingers don't point that way.

Seriously, look at them. They don't.

3. Also, about that ring finger...

What Is It Even Connected To?

4. But really the space between them is what's really throwing us off.

Never Mind the Buzzcocks: Rhod Gilbert on becoming the new host

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - TV news news »

It feels like we've had guest hosts on Never Mind the Buzzcocks forever, but that's about to change. Yup, we have a new - permanent - host, and it's none other than comedian Rhod Gilbert. Since that's a pretty big thing to take on, we called up Rhod - while he was dealing with an unruly dog on a Welsh mountain (good preparation, in other words) - to find out how he'll cope with difficult guests, what'll be different and why the first single he ever bought is not a good sign of how credible he is...

Hi Rhod. Are you going to be more of a Lamarr or more of an Amstell?

"I don't think I'm either to be honest with you. You can go round in circles analysing these things to death. Both of those guys hosted a lot of shows, they left their mark on it indelibly. »

David Arnold: 'I'd go back to James Bond in a heartbeat'

29 September 2014 1:00 AM, PDT | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

While no-one can touch John Barry at the top of the James Bond music pyramid, the only person that even comes close is David Arnold.

Arnold scored five James Bond films, from 1997's Tomorrow Never Dies to 2008's Quantum of Solace, but was replaced for Skyfall by Sam Mendes's usual music man Thomas Newman.

James Bond will return. So will Sam Mendes. But will Arnold be back in the studio filling in the gaps between what he calls "the explosions and the car squeals and the gear changes and the punctures"?

Ahead of his Bose Universal Conductor live immersive collaboration with Ella Eyre, Digital Spy caught up with the composer, and when we finished grilling him on all things Doctor Who, we got round to 007.

"I always said that I'd go back if they asked me," Arnold said when we brought up the inevitable.

Life-Size Amy Winehouse Statue Unveiled in London

Today, a life-size bronze statue of Amy Winehouse was unveiled in the London neighborhood of Camden, on what would have been her 31st birthday (Winehouse passed away three years ago due to alcohol poisoning). Hundreds of fans gathered on site to witness the unveiling of the statue, which depicts Winehouse wearing a star of David necklace, with a real red rose crowning her iconic beehive hairdo. Her parents were on hand for the unveiling, with her father Mitch Winehouse — who started the Amy Winehouse Foundation to help those struggling with substance abuse issues — calling the day one of "incredibly mixed emotions.""They don't put statues up for people who are with us anymore so it reinforces the fact that physically she's gone but spiritually she'll never leave us. I feel sad, very, very sad," he said. "We shouldn't be here but we are, this is the reality and we've just »
