Scarlett Johansson made a shocking revelation on rejected from the iconic movie Gravity. The Marvel star in her May interview with Variety revealed to be auditioning for the role of Ryan Stone before Sandra Bullock casted. Moreover, she also lost the role as lead in Iron Man 2 from Emily Blunt.
Scarlett Johansson said she felt frustrated and hopeless after the rejection
The 38-year-old told the outlet, “The first was Iron Man 2 and then the other one was Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity. I had wanted that role so much. It was sort of the straw that broke the camel’s back. I felt really frustrated and hopeless. Like, ‘Am I doing the right job?'”
Moreover, she also opened up about auditioning for the 2013 sci-fi thriller. She said, “I did a screen test for the movie Gravity, that Sandra Bullock is fantastic in, but I had to be in like the full whole space suit thing, and sort of pretend I was kind of like floating in space,Even though I was just sitting in a chair with a helmet on.”
Although she lost a chance to be in the iconic film she never loses to prove her capabilities as an actress. For her new role in the upcoming film Asteroid City she received a six minutes standing ovation at The Cannes Film Festival.
Johansson said on the accolades, “Somehow, I think because Wes [Anderson] is so uncomfortable. It somehow makes me feel better. I’m like, ‘Oh he’s just so uncomfortable at this, I’m good. I’m like, ‘I could do this all day.'”
Previously on preparing the role she said, “I never thought about how she would have — I guess we probably do, because I did have to prepare a piece that she was working on.”
She added, “So, I think we probably do. She’s a sociopath. So, hopefully, we have that not in common.”
