SECRETARY star Maggie Gyllenhaal took on her "scariest" onscreen task for her new movie HAPPY ENDINGS - singing.
The 27-year-old actress plays a singer in a bar band in the movie, and rather than pre-record her songs she insisted instead on performing them live as cameras rolled.
She says, "There's nothing alive happening in the scene (when someone lip-synchs).
"It's easier to be awake and alive and really in the moment singing. It was like a gift handed to me because you have to breathe, you have to respond to the sounds coming out of your mouth."
