Scarlett Johansson’s name was on the short list for the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl With With The Dragon Tattoo, but lost out on the role because she’s too sexy.
The movie is based on the book by Swedish author Stieg Larrson. The movie’s director, David Fincher gave the role to Rooney Mara, instead. In an interview with Vogue, he said, “We flew in people from New Zealand and Swaziland and all over the place. Look, we saw some amazing people. Scarlett Johansson was great. It was a great audition, I’m telling you.”
He went on to reveal the reason why Scarlett didn’t get the part. He said, “But the thing with Scarlett is, you can’t wait for her to take her clothes off.”
Do you think that Scarlett’s nude photos being hacked had anything to do with that? Perhaps the director may have thought that to be too controversial to be attached to his movie? What do you think?
Also, can YOU wait for Scarlett to take her clothes off?
