Scarett Johansson Auditioned to Play Fantine

Tuesday, February 12, 2013

SCARLETT Johansson auditioned for Anne Hathaway‘s role in Les Miserables.

The Iron Man star, 28, 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.

During a recent interview, Scarlett was if she had auditioned.

“Yes, I did. I sang my little heart out,” she said.

“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.”
