Scarlett Johansson auditioned for the role of Fantine in the ‘Les Miserables’ film, but she lost out to Anne Hathaway. Now that Hathaway has managed to win every award known to mankind for her heart wrenching performance in the film, does Johansson have any regrets about losing the role?
Anne Hathaway as Fantine in 'Les Miserables'
 
In a new interview with Broadway.com, she denies that she feels bad, saying, “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. 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.”
 
She also revealed that she was suffering from laryngitis for the audition, saying, “I auditioned with laryngitis. I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis.” Alas, it was not mean to be. ScarJo wasn’t the only famous face to audition and lose out the Fantine role – Jessica Biel also famously sent in an audition tape for the part. However, director Tom Hooper has stated on the record that Anne Hathaway’s audition was leaps and bounds beyond anybody else’s, and there was no possible alternative to Fantine.

Anne will be happy to hear that, especially considering that this role is very likely to net her that elusive Oscar statuette, especially after losing out in 2008 for ‘Rachel Getting Married’. Anne just recently won at the Golden Globes, the SAGs, and the BAFTAs, and the only remaining awards show now is the Oscars on February 24th.
