Lucy Hale Fifty Shades of Grey Audition


Lucy Hale is now talking about her “very uncomfortable” audition for Fifty Shades of Grey. The “Pretty Little Liars” star says she was interested in the role of Anastasia Steele because she wanted to try “something a little different.”

“I think any girl in my demographic would have loved to be a part of it,” Hale explains to MTV News. “Mainly, I was just interested in doing something risky and doing something a little different than my character on ‘PLL,’ so it took me out of my comfort zone.” Hale says the “awkward” tryout was “unlike any audition I have ever done before in my life.”

“Let’s just say I don’t want my grandmother watching this audition tape,” she jokes about the scene she had to perform. “It actually was just me [in the audition]. It was a two-page monologue of exactly what you would think it would be,” she says. “Very uncomfortable, but it was sort of one of those things where you just had to go for it or you’re just gonna look lame — hopefully, I didn’t look lame.”

Do you think Hale should have been cast in Fifty Shades of Grey?
