Scarlett Johansson spent days trying to record owl noises while recording her new album.
The 'Lost in Translation' actress was so determined to incorporate unique sounds on her debut LP 'Anywhere I Lay My Head' she even taped the call of the nocturnal birds.
She said: "I spent days trying to record owls. I would hear them and then run outside to find them. My producer David Sitek told me to keep a mini-recorder with me all the time and record sounds I liked. That was the most elusive thing we recorded - the owls. We recorded all kinds of stuff - even rainstorms."
Scarlett couldn't care less about the criticism her album has received, because she is confident she has a good voice.
She added to NME magazine: "I think a lot of actors have good voices. We are mimics. If you were to hum something now, I'd probably be able to sing it right back to you. I'm a pretty decent singer."
