Remember the '90s/noughties-era debate about who was the more compelling blonde: ScarJo or Kirsten Dunst? Both actresses have since met success, with numerous awards nods and international fame thanks to riveting roles in indie stories and blockbuster hits. But back in the mid-1990s when Jumanji was casting, director Joe Johnston had to choose one actress over the other.
An 11-year-old Scarlett auditioned for the role of Judy, one of the siblings who plays the game Jumanji and unwittingly releases a boy who was trapped there for 26 years (played by the grown-up Robin Williams). Her audition is supercute, but the part ultimately went to Dunst who did an excellent job in the fantasy adventure flick. If you want to see what ScarJo was like before she became a blockbuster bombshell, check out this adorable audition reel. Then, feel free to obsess over the new Captain America: The Winter Soldier posters, featuring the actress, over here. [Spotted via Filmmaker IQ]
