Scarlett Johansson Thought Film Dreams Were Over After Talent Agent Rejection

As a child, Scarlett Johansson revealed that she had experienced being refused by a talent agent and she quickly presumes that her movie career has ended before it had even begun.  The talent agent was introduced to her by one of her brother’s classmates.  When she was interviewed by director Darren Aronofsky, the star of Avengers explained:

“My brother did Little League (baseball), and I took acting and singing and tap and all that. There was someone in my older brother’s class who was doing some commercials and theatre, so my mum took me to that kid’s agent because I loved musicals. They didn’t want me, though. I was devastated. I thought it was the end of my career.”

Eventually when she was already nine years old she made her debut in the movie “North” and she played the role of John Ritter’s daughter in 1994.

She further added:

“I got a 1080 (on her SAT college admissions test), which was pretty low. But that was probably because I didn’t answer half of the math questions. I didn’t get into NYU’s film school. I still have the rejection letter.”
