9-year-old Scarlett Johansson’s first film auditions

Scarlett Johansson began building an acting career as a child. The little girl was very impressed by the musical “Meet Me in St. Louis” with Judy Garland.

After watching, Scarlett literally fell ill with acting and began to act out various scenes – the girl, like a real actress, even managed to cry.

As a result, Johansson made her film debut in the 1994 film North, and a year before that she came to the casting of the film Jumanji. At the audition, the nine-year-old girl looked very convincing.

Alas, they never managed to get the role of Judy Shepard Scarlett – it was given to Kirsten Dunst, who would later also become a Hollywood star.

The film was eventually released in 1995 and became one of the highest-grossing projects of the year. With a budget of “only” $63 million, it grossed $263 million. And today, a comedy fantasy about how an ordinary town turns into a jungle because of a board game is a true Hollywood classic.
