Kristen Bell's role in The Adventures of Tom Sawyer proved she's a well-rounded lady who's pretty much good at everything. Another musical, perhaps?

3. Emilia Clarke

Stuart C. Wilson/Stringer

Daenerys Targaryen can silence dragons, so it's no surprise she can do the same with an audience. Her performance in Breakfast at Tiffany's left us wishing for more delightful tunes.

4. Penelope Cruz

Of course Penelope Cruz can sing, because it wouldn't be fair if she was just the most beautiful woman on earth. The Spanish actress is such a lovely singer, she was featured in Miguel Bosé's song "Decirnos Adiós."

You may or may not have known Scarlett actually came out with an album at one point. For those of you who didn't, listen to her sultry collaboration with Pete Yorn for a performance on Live with Regis and Kelly.

6. Leighton Meester

Leighton's voice sounds nothing short of amazing. Surprisingly enough, it's nowhere near as aggressive as Blair Waldorf's. Listen to her live version of "Heart Strings" on the Bob Rivers Radio Show.

If you know anything about Emma Stone, you know she got her start on In Search of the Partridge Family. Once we saw Easy A, we understood why. She's multitalented.

Moulin Rouge made us fall in love with Nicole Kidman's beautiful voice. So naturally, excitement filled the air when it was announced she'd be singing again in Unusual Way. Love it.

Turns out, the entire Smith family is musically inclined. Before her band Wicked Wisdom came this song. Try not to let the nudity distract from her voice.

16. Marion Cotillard

Michael Buckner/Staff

Not only is Marion Cotillard our beauty idol, she's our singing one as well. We can't help but picture life in the '50s during this production of "Take It All." Her voice is classic.

Frazer Harrison/Staff

Country Strong, indeed! No one knew what to expect when Gwyneth took a role as a struggling musician. Turns out, no struggle whatsoever, the natural songbird performed wonderfully.

19. Evan Rachel Wood

Frazer Harrison/Staff

Her performance in Across the Universe swept us off our musical feet. Even George Clooney couldn't help but listen to her mini-concert during the Ides of March after-party.
