Scarlett Johansson Talks About Losing 'Les Miserables' Role To Anne Hathaway

Scarlett Johansson (photosScarlett Johansson photos) says she auditioned for the part of Fantine in 'Les Miserables' but ultimately lost out to Anne Hathaway (photosAnne Hathaway photos).

Hathaway is nominated for Best Supporting Actress at this month's Oscars and took home the BAFTA this past weekend.

"I sang my little heart out," the 28-year-old Johansson tells a Broadway website of her audition.

"I auditioned with laryngitis," she explains. "I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis."

"The jazz hands kid inside me was just over the moon!," Johansson says of the audition.

"The audition itself brought back so many memories of auditioning for Les Mis for the young Cosette," a role she tried out for when she younger, "and it was fun for me to revisit that."

But Johansson admits that the right woman got the job.

ďAnd 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."

Other names that are rumored to have been up for the role include Amy Adams, Marion Cotillard (photosMarion Cotillard photos), Kate Winslet (photosKate Winslet photos) and Rebecca Hall.
