In this case, it is all about the voice of the actress. In the post-production of the movie Her, Spike Jonze realized that Samantha Morton’s voice wasn’t exactly the kind of voice Joaquin Phoenix’s character could’ve fallen in love with.

So, the director invited Scarlett Johansson to redub the computer. Now, all that’s left from Samantha in the movie, is the name of the operating system.
