Keira Knightley Sings in The Edge of Love

They shared a nude Vanity Fair cover, and now Keira Knightley is showing vocal prowess to rival that of other actress-turned-singer Scarlett Johansson.

As Vera Philips, the lover of Welsh poet Dylan Thomas in the new biopic, The Edge of Love, Knightley, 23, sings "Blue Tahitian Moon." "I did some lessons with a voice coach because I can't sing," the actress recently said. "It was live. There were 100 extras and John [Maybury, the director] was like, 'Now you're going to sing.' I've never been so frightened in my entire life."

The film, written by Knightley's mom, Sharman Macdonald, and costarring Sienna Miller and Matthew Rhys, will open this year's Edinburgh International Film Festival on June 18.
