Marriage Story star Scarlett Johansson says she faced a lot of rejection initially in her career due to her now-famous husky voice. Scarlett, who made her movie debut at the age of nine with the film North, said she always wanted to work in musical theatre but casting directors did not give her a chance due to her deep voice. In an interview with a leading magazine, “When I was a little kid, I trained as a singer because I really wanted to do musical theatre, but my voice was so deep it was impossible for me to get cast! So I went into acting instead.” “I’d go on auditions, I was this cute little blonde girl, then I’d open my mouth and say (in a deep voice), ‘Buy this product, it’s fantastic!’ It was quite a disadvantage at the time. I lost count of hearing casting directors ask me if I had a sore throat,” she added.
