Scarlett Johansson Bombed Les Mis Audition

Some sad news today: we could have been spared Anne Hathway‘s insufferable ego had Scarlett Johansson not bombed her Les Miserables audition. Yes, Ms. Johansson auditioned for the role that Anne “Holy F-ck Aren’t I Amazing?” Hathway won but effed it up and blames it on laryngitis. Yeah, okay Scarlett. You bombed your audition because you had laryngitis. Like the producers and casting directors wouldn’t say, “No problem, let’s try it again when you’re feeling better.” You’re Scarlett Johansson. You get more chances than most actors do. That’s what happens when you’re on the A-list. Perhaps your singing just wasn’t as good as Ms. Hathway’s. I mean, seriously. Seriously. Come on.

Ms. ScarJo is very gracious though and a great sport about losing the role to Anne “Everyone Loves Hearing Me Talk As Much As I Do” Hathway, saying,

I think looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped [her] performance. It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be. But, yes, the audition itself brought back so many memories of auditioning for Les Miz for the young Cosette, and it was fun for me to revisit that.

Johnasson is currently starring in Cat on a Hot Tin Roof on Broadway. That Liz Taylor is so hot right now.

    • Yes, it is unusual for someone like her to have to audition, but there are exceptions. In this case, this is a big Hwood musical backed by some very influential people, so the rules bend a bit. Still though, I am 98% positive that they would give her AT LEAST a callback if she really did have a throat condition. I mean, COME ON. SERIOUSLY.

    • Yeah sometimes they get a call but they still have to audition when several big stars are interested in the role.

  • Her Tom Waits cover album was a hot mess. Glad I didn’t have her hear her singing in Les Mis. I actually want to see this one day.

    • It’s an a-okay film, enjoyable although perhaps a bit too long. Unlike Catherine, I did enjoy Hathaway’s performance a lot, she made me tear up.

  • Catherine is my new favorite person for also hating on Saint Anne. (I don’t know why but she just irritates me. I just want to slap her.)

    • Thanks! I don’t even have anything against her performances or acting. But her attitude completely overshadows that for me.

  • All of you need to get a life. Fat ass turds sitting at home and bashing on these people that you don’t even know.

  • Scarjo every day of the week but maybe it was easier to imagine Anne as a 75 lb flat chested character. Just look at the pic of Scarjo in that bikini
