(On her worst audition) Sister Act. I get this call: they're having trouble finding the young mousy nun so they want me to go in. "But isn't this singing?" I ask. "Yes, they know you don't sing." I go in, read the scene, it goes well and the director says to me, "Will you sing a song for us?" I said, "Sing? I don't sing." "No. no, no. Lauren, it doesn't matter that you don't sing. We just want to see if you look like you can sing-do the body movements and the facial expressions and then we'll dub it." So I closed my eyes and belled out "Happy Birthday" as loud as I could and I tried to put all the feeling and body movement into it. When I finished, I opened my eyes. I've never seen such looks of horror as there were on their faces. Then I heard someone in the back of this group say, "Wow, that girl's got balls." It was horrible.
