Scarlett Johansson auditioned for Les Miserables

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.”
