Wood shared that while she fully transformed herself into the material girl, she didn't actually get to sing as Madonna in the film. Which is too bad, because she does a very good Madonna impression.
Wood also said that after filming the biopic, the director was surprised to learn that the actress can sing as Madonna, as she shared, "We had a karaoke wrap party and I sang Madonna and the director goes, 'Why didn't I make you sing in this movie?'"
Wood's singing skills shouldn't be a total surprise as she starred in the Oscar and Golden Globe award-nominated musical Across the Universe in 2007 as well as 2019's Frozen II as Anna and Elsa's mother Queen Iduna. Wood also is one-half of cover band Evan + Zane, which she formed with Zane Carney in 2018.
Still, Fallon seemed super impressed when Wood grabbed the mic and effortlessly performed Madonna's hit "Material Girl," before belting out the Alanis Morissette classic "You Oughta Know" and finishing off with the "Queen of Rock N' Roll" Janis Joplin singing the Big Brother and the Holding Company ft. Joplin banger "Piece of My Heart."
EVAN RACHEL WOOD: (SINGING) They can beg and they can plead but they can't see the light. Cause the boy with the cold hard cash is always Mr. Right.
KYLIE MAR: Actress Evan Rachel Wood appeared on "The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon" Thursday to promote season four of "Westworld." And while there she also discussed playing Madonna in the upcoming Weird Al Yankovic biopic. However, Wood shared that while she fully transformed herself into the queen of pop, she didn't actually get to sing as Madonna in the film, which is too bad because she does a very good Madonna impression.
EVAN RACHEL WOOD: (SINGING) Cause we are living in a material world. And I am a material girl. You know that we are living in a material world. And I am a material girl.
KYLIE MAR: And she didn't stop at the queen of pop. She also had some Alanis up her sleeve.
EVAN RACHEL WOOD: (SINGING) It's not fair to remind me of the cross I bare that you gave to me. You, you, you oughta know.
KYLIE MAR: And she finished it off with the queen of rock and roll, Janis Joplin.
EVAN RACHEL WOOD: (SINGING) Have another little piece of my heart now, baby. You know you got it, [? child, ?] if it makes you feel good.
