Watch: The Bennet Girls that sing... (featuring music videos from Keira Knightley, Carey Mulligan, and Jena Malone)

0 Comments
Which of these Bennet girls (P&P actresses Keira Knightley, Rosamund Pike, Jena Malone, Carey Mulligan, and Talulah Riley) can sing in real-life? All of them! And no, they're not singing as the Bennet girls in the videos compiled here, but you know what? They can all sing and could most definitely form an indie girl group (or play one in a movie), if they ever choose to...someday...in the near future. The first one I've heard was Talulah Riley (though I have yet to hear her sing as herself not in character) as Mary Bennet singing briefly in a scene at Netherfield Ball in Pride & Prejudice movie. According to director Joe Wright, it was her "singing live in front of all those people" in that particular scene in P&P movie. Then, I heard Keira singing briefly in her The Edge of Love movie and last year's Begin Again (in which she sang 6 of the tracks from the soundtrack including the Oscar nominated song Lost Stars). Next, it was Jena, as she actually has an indie band, Jena Malone and The Shoe (formerly her band was called Jena Malone and her Bloodstains) with a recently released EP album titled I'm Okay, and the first time I heard Carey singing a song, New York, New York was in her Shame movie. Rosamund, I have yet to hear her sing, but I heard she can sing (with her parents being opera singers, she's said to have a natural-born singing voice! read an article excerpt via USA Today below)...though she hasn't used her vocal talents in films yet.

Watch the following music videos (I compiled here) of Keira, Carey, and Jena as well as Talulah's clip singing as Mary Bennet from P&P movie below....

Oscar Nominee Rosamund Pike (Best Actress for Gone Girl) looking radiant in a custom made Givenchy red dress attended tonight's 87th Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood & Highland Center on February 22, 2015 in Hollywood, California.


UPDATE: Of course, not surprisingly, Rosamund's Best Actress category has not been announced yet as the award show is still on...lost to the expected winner Julianne Moore of Still Alice (which not many people have seen...). It should've been RP as she deserved to win for her incredible performance in GG. It would've been nice to be surprise, but all the acting categories this award season has been predictable and boring...no big upset nor surprises. Oh, well...Ros may have lost (better luck next time), but her amazing Amy performance was still unforgettable and a big winner (in my viewing) and her beautiful Oscar dress tonight slays the red carpet and is a winner too!

See several new photos and video of Rosamund looking gorgeous at the Oscars red carpet arrival below...
