Her least favorite song is “I Have Confidence,” which her character Maria sings while on her way out of the convent and to the von Trapp home. 

“Probably one that I don’t really think was Rodgers’,” she told Sawyer of the tune. “Mostly because the lyrics were a bit inane. Actually, what I did because I could make sense of the [lyrics] — and I have to have lyrics that make sense — I decided that the best way to sing ‘I Have Confidence’ was to go completely nuts with panic and fear in this sort of mad, busy way.”
