Scarlett Johansson got rejected from something?! The sultry 28-year-old Don Juan star recently Interview magazine about how she was rejected as a child star because of her deep, trademark voice. While we know Schadenfreude is wrong-- we can't say we aren't a little happy to hear the news that the charmed star didn't always have everything coming up roses.
She told the mag, "I was always terrible at commercials because my voice was so deep. At the age of nine, I sounded like a whiskey-drinking, chain-smoking fool. Wasn’t going to sell Jell-O with that voice."
The Avengers star, who got engaged to French reporter Romain Dauriac over the summer, also spoke of her need to have leisure time between and during acting projects.
"Especially in theater, where you’re doing something like eight shows a week, giving three-hour performances each time, and the work is agonizing and there’s never a moment to rest." She continued, "I would just perish if I wasn’t able to meet my boyfriend for dinner afterward, or meet a couple of friends for drinks, or get up the next day and go to the gym, or see my dad, or just do those everyday things."
We wonder if the actress, who starred in the Broadway revival of Arthur Miller's A View From the Bridge, was hinting that the grueling pace of the show attributed to her 2011 divorce from Ryan Reynolds?
