Scarlett Johansson auditioned for Les Misérables

Scarlett Johansson Scarlett Johansson auditioned for Anne Hathaway's role in Les Misérables. The 28-year-old actress was keen to take on the part of tragic Fantine in Tom Hooper's big screen version of the hit musical but thinks Anne was the correct choice. When asked if she had auditioned, Scarlett said, "Yes, I did. I sang my little heart out. The jazz hands kid inside me was just over the moon! I auditioned with laryngitis. I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis. I think, looking at the film now, there's no possible way I ever could have topped that performance [by Anne Hathaway]. It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be." It wasn't the first time Scarlett had auditioned for a part in the famous musical. When she was younger she went for the role of Fantine's eight-year-old daughter Cosette, so the story has always been close to her heart. She told Broadway.com, "But, yes, the audition itself brought back so many memories of auditioning for Les Mis for the young Cosette and it was fun for me to revisit that."

    She’s not a good singer. She thinks she is, but I’ve heard her, and she isn’t. At all.

    Your right but she’s cute as hell and you want it to be. She’s awesome 🙂

    Why isn’t Scarlett getting all upset with Anne Hathaway like Ms. X Tom Cruise is all whiny about losing a part to Anne???

    The question is, why isn’t Anne getting upset with Scarlett rather than Katie? She probably loses more roles to her rather than Katie, even if this time she got it (because she’s a muuuuuuuuuuch better singer than ScarJo).
