Joey King added ‘cute little lisp’ to her voice for ‘Despicable Me 4’ character

Mumbai, June 20 (IANS) Actress Joey King, who has done the voice-over for the character Poppy in the animated film ‘Despicable Me 4’, added a cute little lisp to her voice for the job.

The actress feels voice acting comes with the freedom to let loose and not worry about appearances for the camera.

“Recording voice-over for an animated movie is one of my favourite things because you have to give everything using just your voice. You end up making a bit of a fool of yourself to understand what the character is going through. You can’t be afraid to throw yourself around to make it resonate in your voice. The freedom to let loose and not worry about appearances is what I love the most, especially when I get to play such a fun, over-the-top yet endearing character like Poppy,” she said.

“I can really go for it, do some wild stuff and there’s no wrong way to do it. Poppy’s voice differs from mine because I added a cute little lisp to her voice, which is one of my favourite things about the character. I love when kids try to be all serious and make a point with that innocent, childlike voice, and in Poppy’s case, with her lisp. And although it wasn’t really my intention, somehow her lisp makes her come off even scarier,” she added.

Los Angeles, July 25 (IANS) John Wick may be a badass but he too has his fair share of vulnerable moments, especially when Keanu Reeves in him takes over. Recently, the Hollywood star choked up as he spoke about his film ‘The Matrix’ clocking 25 years.

The realisation hit Reeves, as he went silent for 20 seconds while trying to find the right words to remember the film, reports Variety.

He told Stephen Colbert during an appearance on ‘The Late Show’: “‘The Matrix’ changed my life, and then over these years, it’s changed so many other people’s lives in really positive and great ways.”

The actor mentioned as he gathered himself: “As an artist, you hope for that when you get to do a film or tell a story.”

As per Variety, Reeves appeared to choke up while adding: “So when you say these years, the amount of people that I have met who have said to me and been touched by ‘The Matrix’ in such a positive way… It’s the best.”

The Bridgerton-themed party was held on July 20 in the Hamptons, New York but the legendary singer shared the video on Wednesday (Eastern Standard Time). The dramatic video montage was set to orchestral music, reports People magazine.

The video showed a collection of images of JLo throughout the night, as well as videos of guests, attendees and performers dancing as if they were at a 19th-century English ball, akin to Netflix’s popular historical romance series. At one point in the video, Lopez can be seen singing into a microphone.
