Oh, So THIS Is What It's Like To Audition For Fifty Shades Of Grey
Well they couldn't exactly not ask the actors to take their clothes off...
Well US soap star Ryan Paevey has spilled the beans on what his audition for the film was like, and it sounds just awkward as we imagined…
“I did read for Christian Grey,” Ryan told the ladies of “The View” on Tuesday (February 17).
“[It was] about how you’d think. You know, I think I have a little bit more respect for women than Christian did, so it’s kind of a step outside of my shoes. If you know the character a little bit, it’s rough. It’s rough. My hat’s off to Jamie for going there.”
It all sounds pretty standard up until now, but then there's phase two.
“Phase one, you’re dressed,” he explained. “When you walk in, you’re dressed. Phase two, you sit in a long line in a hallway with a bunch of strangers, everybody knowing that one of us is going to molest [another] one of us in about five minutes or so. Then you walk in and they have some lines, and she says something about how she wants to introduce herself to me, and I don’t want to hear it.”
Adding that the actress auditioning for Anastasia had to strip him!
“I did [take off my clothes],” Paevey said with a laugh. “But I don’t do it, she does it.”
Oh heeeey Ryan Paevey!
