Scarlett Johansson auditioned for the role of Fantine in Les Miserables.
The actress didn’t get the role, Anne Hathaway did, but she tried her best in the audition – despite having laryngitis.
“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.”
