During the interview, James remarked at how Jessica sings so confidently in her new movie The Eyes of Tammy Faye.

“I would rather do full nudity than sing a song,” she responded. “I felt so embarrassed and so just completely out of element and out of my comfort zone. And especially in Tammy Faye, she was so confident from the first note. She’s yelling up to Jesus. It’s just beyond anything I’ve ever been comfortable with.”

Jessica also talked about singing for her upcoming TV series George and Tammy, in which she plays country singer Tammy Wynette opposite Michael Shannon as George Jones.

“It’s amazing but I’m drinking a lot of Bourbon, I’m not going to lie,” she joked. “There’s a lot to get over my nerves. We’ve got 30 songs we’re singing so it’s no joke.”
