Meryl Streep's singing struggle

Meryl Streep found it "surprisingly easy" to sing badly in 'Florence Foster Jenkins'.

The 67-year-old actress takes on the lead role in the movie about the opera singer hopeful and admits she found it "great fun" taking on the role.

She told Good Morning America: "To sing badly was surprisingly easy ... sadly. It was great fun, she was very specific in how she sang.

"She was a woman who just loved music and she gave lots of money away to the symphony and all sorts of music enterprises in the city."

Meanwhile, Meryl previously admitted she used to fear every film she did would be her last.

She said: "If you're lucky you can keep working. But everybody has troughs and dismal times - every single person. I remember as I was hovering around 40, I thought each movie would be my last, really. And all the evidence of other 40-year-old women at that time - this is 27 years ago - would lead you to believe it was over.

"On a certain level you don't have any choice - you're unhappy if you're not doing it, so you're compelled in a certain way."
