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

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....

Five Secrets of Oscar Nominee Rosamund Pike (via USA Today)
2. Rosamund Pike has natural-born pipes, but she hasn’t shown them off on film
London-born Pike is the only child of opera singers Caroline and Julian Pike. She, too, has vocal chops, but hasn’t had screen occasion to share them. Into the Woods director Rob Marshall recently asked informally if she could sing on screen.

“I felt very inclined to say yes. But I have yet to sing in a professional capacity,” says Pike. “Never say never.”

In the meantime, she’s happy to sing Janis Joplin and Bob Dylan in her car.
