Scarlett Johansson And New Boyfriend Romain Dauriac Go Tattoo Shopping [PHOTOS]

Scarlett Johansson and her new boyfriend, French journalist Romain Dauriac dressed down while out in New York City yesterday (February 18th).  She played Maggie the Cat on Broadway’s Cat On A Hot Tin Roof, and recently, Johansson admitted to an audition that she’d didn’t quite nail.

Johansson went up against Anne Hathaway to play Fantine in Tom Hooper’s Les Miserables, but the odds were not in the Native New Yorker’s favor.

I auditioned with laryngitis,” Johansson told (via New York Daily News). “I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis.”

Johannson gave it her all, but it just wasn’t good enough. 

“I sang my little heart out,” she continued.  “The jazz hands kid inside me was just over the moon!”

Still, Johansson believes the role went to the right person.  “I think, looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped that performance,” Johansson said.  “It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be.”
