Scarlett Johansson turns down Meatloaf

Pomp rock balladeer Meatloaf was on the hunt for an actress to duet with for his cover of Celine Dion’s 1996 hit “It’s All Coming Back to Me Now.”

MeatLoaf allegedly first asked The Black Dahlia Scarlett Johansson before reaching out to other actresses, who have all turned him down.

The gig eventually went to Norwegian singer Marion Raven. The song appears on Meatloaf’s new album “Bat Out of Hell III,” which hits the stores October 31st.

TMZ.com speculates the snubs were a direct result of Meatloaf’s “creepy American Idol finale duet with Katharine McPhee” as the culprit for the negative responses.
