Beyonce Knowles recently revealed that she hates hearing herself speak during an interview about her new movie "Epic."
Ironically, the Grammy award-winning singer's voice helped her launch a very successful and lucrative music career, but she recently admitted that just like many people, she cringes when she hears herself speaking.
"I hate hearing myself speak. I think everyone does. I hear my little crazy voice coming out of this beautiful, regal woman— I'm like this is really strange, but I love it," Beyonce told Australian TV show "The Project."
"Just seeing yourself animated and seeing yourself doing something you could never do in real life— I've always thought, for whatever reason, that would be super cool," she said in explaining why she accepted the role of "Queen Tara."
Beyonce, 32, plays a Mother Nature-like queen of the forest and love interest in the animated 3D film. While her daughter, Blue Ivy, is a little over one year old, she has already watched some of the movie.
"I showed her a few of the scenes. She's still young, so her attention span is about 20 minutes, but she did see it. She was like, 'Wait a minute. That's you!'" Beyonce said.
The singer recently shared new intimate photographs of her and husband Jay-Z's first child. In one photo Blue Ivy is seen wearing a heavily jeweled crown and in another she touches her famous mother's nose.
"She's my road dog, She's my homey, my best friend. I feel like I have something that has grounded me so much more," Beyonce previously told Vogue magazine about Blue Ivy. "Family has always been important. I've always had my mother and my father and my husband. But it's just ... Life is so much more than ... It's not defined by any of this."
In May it was claimed that the "Grown Woman" singer was expecting her second child, but Jay-Z, 43, quickly shut down pregnancy rumors.
"It's not true. The news is worse than blogs," Jay-Z reportedly told Hot 97 program director Ebro Darden in a private email.
