Tuesday gossip round-up: ScarJo auditioned for Fantine in ‘Les Miz’

Scarlett Johansson Honored With Star On The Hollywood Walk Of Fame 

Scarlett Johansson admits that she had a shot at Anne Hathaway‘s Oscar-nominated role in “Les Miserables,” but some voice trouble plagued her audition. “I sang my little heart out,” Johansson tells Broadway.com. “I auditioned with laryngitis. I did everything I could to, like, not have laryngitis.” But Johansson, currently starring on Broadway in “Cat on a Hot Tin Roof,” insists there are no hard feelings. “Looking at the film now, there’s no possible way I ever could have topped that performance,” she says of Hathaway’s turn. “It was perfect and I think fateful and meant to be.”

Taylor Swift knows there are people out there talking about her love life, but she’s doing her best to ignore it. “I’m sure if I looked up the latest Google alerts rumor it would say I’m chasing somebody who doesn’t like me as much as I like him. People love that angle on me,” Swift tells Elle magazine. “They’re like, ‘Oh Taylor, coming on too strong again, chasing boys.’ I never chase boys. They don’t like it!” And while her recent dig at ex Harry Styles at the Grammys might suggest otherwise, Swift insists she’s not one to vent her anger. “I don’t think I’ve ever yelled at an ex-boyfriend,” she says. “Ever. I’m not a yeller. I’m not a fit-thrower. If something is done, it’s done.”

Mila Kunis may have gone pretty quickly from a nine-year relationship with Macaulay Culkin to her current beau, former “That 70s Show” co-star Ashton Kutcher, but she still looks back fondly on her bachelorette days. “For four years I was single,” she tells Allure magazine, calling her days without a boyfriend “an amazing time. I love being single.”

Lindsay Lohan has reportedly been spending some quality time with 22-year-old New York DJ Julian Calvin, according to the New York Daily News. The two were seen “sucking face in front of everyone” at a party last Friday and then were said to be inseparable for the rest of the weekend. “‘Dating’ may be too heavy of a word to use right now,” a source says. “They haven’t been hooking up that long.” But another source tells E! News that “dating” is about as far from the truth as you can get, calling the reports “ridiculous” and insisting Lohan and Calvin are “totally just friends and nothing more.”

Vivienne Jolie-Pitt, the 4-year-old daughter of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt, is already earning some impressive cash. The toddler was reportedly paid $3,000 a week for a small role in her mom’s upcoming film, “Maleficent,” according to contracts obtained by TMZ. The tot — whose twin brother, Knox, doesn’t appear in the film — also received a per diem $60 for expenses each day she was on set. Older siblings Pax, 9, and Zahara, 8, also filmed cameos in the film, though it’s unknown how much they earned.
