London, February 13 (ANI): Scarlett Johansson has revealed that she was vying for the role of Fantine in Tom Hooper's film adaptation of 'Les Miserables,' but lost out to Anne Hathaway.

Gushing about how excited she had been for the part, the 28-year-old said that she sang her "little heart" out.

And she insisted she had no hint of any nerves about her audition.

"The jazz hands kid inside me was just over the moon!" she told Broadway.com.

Unfortunately, Johansson's dream was ruined when she was struck down with laryngitis before the crucial audition, the Daily Mail reported.

But Johansson isn't bitter about losing the role, even though Hathaway, 30, went on to receive a Best Actress Oscar nod in the part.

She admitted that she could have topped Hathaway's performance in the film.

She said the film is perfect and just how it was meant to be. (ANI)
