Jennifer Lawrence reportedly had so much trouble getting past her nerves that she cried when she had to sing “The Hanging Tree” in the latest installment of The Hunger Games.

“She’d probably tell you it was her least favorite day,” said Francis Lawrence, the movie’s director. “She was horrified to sing, she cried a little bit in the morning before she had to sing.”

But, as it turns out, the Academy Award-winning actress is pretty good.

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Part 1 opens in theaters on Nov. 21.
