Johansson's Judy Garland dreams

LONDON: Scarlett Johansson is calling on Hollywood bosses to cast her in the next big movie musical - confessing her childhood dream was to be the next Judy Garland.

The stunning star was recently forced to deny rumours she's set to star in a forthcoming Broadway show - but Johansson admits she would love to take on an all singing, all dancing role, either on stage or screen.

The actress tells, "When I was a kid, I started acting because I wanted to be in movie musicals and on Broadway. I took a lot of vocal lessons and I thought I was going to be Judy Garland or something.

"It's always been my dream to do a movie musical. I always wanted to sing on camera."

And with the success of recent big screen musicals Chicago, Moulin Rouge and Dreamgirls, the 24 year old is confident she'll get the chance to show off all her talents: 'I'm really excited that it's sort of been revived. It's nice that I maybe have a chance to do it."
