Lucy Hale 'Embarrassed' By Fifty Shades Audition
Actress recalls "uncomfortable" monologue as she read for raunchy role...
The Pretty Little Liars star read for the lead role of Anastasia Steele - which finally went to Dakota Johnson - and her audition included some “very, very sexual” lines.
In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Lucy recalled: “That audition was so uncomfortable! It’s exactly what you thought it would be: a big monologue but very, very sexual.”
She added: “There were some things that I was so embarrassed to be reading out loud, but it’s one of those things where you have to commit wholeheartedly or you’re going to make a fool of yourself.”
Having lost out on the raunchy role, Hale set about working on her country music album, Road Between. Despite people “literally” laughing at her for releasing a record, Lucy said: “If you sit down and talk music with me for ten minutes, you know that’s my passion.”
