Scarlett Johansson has surprisenly opened up about her failed audition for the role which she lost out to Anne Hathaway.
Speaking to Broadway.com, the actress has a refreshing moment of honesty and spoke about her failed attempts to star as Fantine in the film adaptation of the musical.
Scarlett said, "I sang my little heart out."
When asked if she was nervous during the audition she denied this straight away adding, "No, are you kidding? The jazz hands kid inside me was just over the moon!"
However, her audition did not go to plan and Scarlett Johansson lost out on the role of Fantine to Anne Hathaway who has won various awards for her performance.
She was quick to explain why she failed to join the film's cast saying, 'I auditioned with laryngitis. I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis.'
But Scarlett's not bitter as she added, "I think, looking at the film now, there's no possible way I ever could have topped that performance.
"It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be."
