Kevin Mazur/WireImage(NEW YORK) — Now that Anne Hathaway is snatching up awards for her portrayal of Fantine in Les Miserables, Scarlett Johansson is discussing how she vied for Hathaway’s role.

The 28-year-old actress, who is now starring in a Broadway production of Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, told that she auditioned for the role, adding, “I sang my little heart out.”

And it wasn’t nerves that hindered Johansson’s audition, it was her health.

“I auditioned with laryngitis. I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis,” she said.

“And I think looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped that performance [by Hathaway]. It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be,” Johansson added.
