Cameron Diaz says producers did the best they could to make her sound good in the new adaptation of children's musical 'Annie'
Cameron Diaz says producers did "the best they could" with her singing voice for 'Annie'.
The 41-year-old actress plays the cruel Miss Hannigan in the upcoming remake of the classic children's musical, but Cameron admits she was apprehensive to sing for the role as she isn't a naturally gifted warbler.
Appearing on 'Chelsea Lately', she said: "With 'Annie', we did the best we could."
However, despite her worries the blonde beauty believes she gave an adequate performance in her musical number.
She added: "I think we got to my optimum which is different to other people - yeah, we tried."
The movie, produced by rap mega-star Jay Z and A-list actor Will Smith, will star Quvenzhane Wallis in the lead role of Annie. Jamie Foxx and Rose Byrne are also part of the star-studded cast.
Jay will provide the score for the movie and admits the story of the red-headed orphan resonated with him as a youngster.
He previously said: "When the TV version [of 'Annie'] came on, I was drawn to it. It was the struggle of this poor kid in this environment and how her life changed - it immediately resonated."
