Idina Menzel admits at Women in Film party to feeling 'really insecure'

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Idina Menzel let them in, let them see the insecure girl she can sometimes be.

The actress/singer who will perform  “Into the Unknown” from “Frozen II” at Sunday’s Academy Awards, co-hosted the annual Women in Film female Oscar nominees party Friday evening at Sunset Room Hollywood. She told the audience that there are times when she doesn’t always feel her best.

“People think because I sing these songs, and I have this really big voice, and all these songs are about empowering little girls and being a role model… it’s kind of hard to do that every day of your life, when you kind of feel like (expletive) sometimes,” she said. “So, it’s really nice to be able to be inspired and embody a lot of you and what you do.”

Actress/singer Idina Menzel, a co-host of the annual Women in Film Female Oscar Nominees Party, arrives at the Sunset Room Hollywood on Feb. 7, 2020.

Menzel paused when she assessed from the noise in the room that “nobody’s listening.”

Resuming her speech, she said, “Whenever I’m feeling really insecure – like, perhaps, let’s say this Sunday when I’m singing at the Oscars… I usually, when I was in ‘Wicked’ actually, I was having a real insecure moment about finding my voice for real, my inside voice. I told myself one night, ‘Tonight, you’re gonna be (expletive) Glenn Close, as Elphaba.’
