Top 10 actors-turned-singers

Share |

Ok, let’s admit it! It’s not enough to be just an actor, or just a singer, or just a fashion designer nowadays. You gotta be multi-talented to dwell in Hollywood. That’s why most of celebs launch their own fashion lines, try their hand in, writing, painting, etc. Some of them prefer singing to all other kinds of part-time celeb activity. For some of them being in front of the camera and being in the recording studio isn’t equally successful. Anyway, this is my selected list of top 10 actors-turned-singers.

10 Scarlett Johansson

The Hollywood star, 23, released her debut album Anywhere I Lay My Head in May, 2008 and didn’t receive positive reviews from critics. Seems like Scarlett is better in acting…

9 Gwyneth Paltrow

How this mother of two manages to combine two careers is still a mystery to me. Paltrow’s song collection comes mostly form her film Duets (2000). Her voice is described as “pretty good,” well tastes differ.

8 Keanu Reeves

I don’t know if many people know that besides being a good actor and a pretty handsome man, Keanu is also a bass guitarist and once even had his band Dogstar. The last Dogstar performance was in October 2002 , and they have since folded. Reeves later performed in band Becky but left due to his working schedule, but he reportedly still plays with the band sometimes.

7 Mini Driver

Mommy-to-be, 40, had her debut album Everything I’ve Got In My Pocket in 2004. Though receiving more negative than positive reviews for her musical career Ms. Driver decided to please her few fans with the second album Seastories that was released in May this year. Though not really ardent about this kind of music I did like her song ‘Beloved’. Does it make me her fan?

6 Bruce Willis

I love this guy! He’s so cute and he manages to safe his charm through years. Bet, most women came to his concerts not as much because of his music, but because of his personality. Anyways, Bruce started his musical career back in the ’80s and managed to go all the way up till now, though these days he focuses more on politics than music.

5 Russell Crowe

In the ‘80s he recorded a track called ‘I Want To Be Like Marlon Brando’ under the name Rus LeRoq. In the ‘90s he fronted the Australian band 30 Odd Foot of Grunts, the only thing I know for sure about the band is that the name sucks. In 2006 he formed a new band called The Ordinary Fear Of God. Like his music?

4 Lindsay Lohan

Oh, Lindsay… no day without Lindsay news. She recorded her debut album Speak in 2004. It went platinum. She released her second album, A Little More Personal, the following year but it wasn’t as successful due to Lohan’s inability to promote it properly because of acting commitments. Lindsay’s next album is scheduled for release this year. Wonder what songs will be about? Samantha Ronson will co-write, I suppose…

And this is the song I liked. Watch ‘Rumors’ from Lindsay’s debut album Speak.

3 Nicole Kidman

As for this Hollywood mommy, she must be good in everything she does. Remember her singing in Moulin Rouge? I must confess I was impressed, really. Though she’s too busy for singing nowadays her prior experience is worth praising. Check her song ‘Something Stupid’ featuring Robbie Williams

2 Evan McGregor

And once again about Moulin Rouge… Nicole Kidman had a wonderful partner, Ewan McGregor who turned out to have a good musical ear and a pretty good voice. He’s great, don’t you think?

1 Kylie Minogue

And here’s No. 1 actor-turned-singer. Australian born pop princess Kylie started her career in showbiz as a child actor, alongside her sister Dannii. She starred as Charlene on Neighbours in 1986. She recorded her first single ‘I Should Be So Lucky’ in 1987. The song was so catchy and sweet that it went to No 1 in the UK. Since then Ms. Minogue is more into singing than acting, actually. But anyway, Kylie’s by far the hottest actor-turned-singer of the decade.

Here’s one of her latest videos ‘In my arms’

But actually, the best actor-turned-singer (even if only for a while) is Cameron Diaz with her “dazzling vocal styling” in My Best Friend’s Wedding episode. She kicks everyone’s ass here.

I’m just kidding.

    Shouldn’t Shakira be on this list? Or Natalie Imbruglia? Maybe that could be a new list – soap stars that turned singer…
