When it comes to naming the biggest and the best stars that Hollywood has to offer, one of the first names that would come to the minds of most people would certainly be Scarlett Johansson, who has enjoyed a hugely successful career. However, even the best in the business get rejected from time to time and Scarlett has admitted that she watches the movies she has been rejected for, and that she even gets bitter about missing out.
Johansson explained, "I usually do at some point. I saw 'Jumanji'. I liked it. I wasn't bitter enough then, now I'm bitter. When it came to 'The Parent Trap', I started to get bitter ... it was hard for me. I auditioned [for 'Les Miserables'] and I had laryngitis ... but I tried. I don't know if that's why I didn't get it, I probably wasn't right for it.''
As well as talking about feeling bitter about some of the movie roles that she has missed out on over the years, Scarlett Johansson also went on to talk about missing out on the lead role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which went to the very impressive Rooney Mara. There were rumours at the time that Scarlett missed out because she was too pretty, something which the actress denies.
Johansson added, "Well, that's not exactly how it went. What happened was, I remember having conversations with [director David] Fincher and he said, 'You have to look like you're totally uncaring of yourself, deprived ... you're fragile'. I said, 'I will, I can be this person!' And he said 'No, you can't.' I really, really wanted that film because I felt I had something to contribute to it, but Fincher had a different vision for the character - and Rooney Mara's so perfect in it."
While we do believe that Scarlett Johansson is one of the best in the business, we are not sure that she would ever have been right for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo. Sorry Scar!
