Pretty Little Liars would likely be an entirely different show if Lucy Hale’s original dream had come true. She desperately wanted to star in the Twilight movies but was shut down. At first she wanted to play Alice (Ashley Greene’s character), but after being rejected for that role, she came back to audition for the role of Jane (Dakota Fanning’s character). While we think Lucy would have made a fabulous Alice, we can’t imagine anyone else playing Aria on PLL. Plus, where would Ashley Greene be now if Lucy snagged the role from her?
And in true Lucy Hale fashion, she’s still super positive about the rejection and considers herself a Twilight fan. “I love everyone they've cast," she tells People. "I'm such a believer in everything happens for a reason and it's all about timing. I like where I'm at right now. I make a living, and I'm on a show, but I can still go on with my life.” We like where Lucy Hale is right now, too!
Lucy Hale shares a few other little-known facts with People, too, like the fact that she’s boy crazy. She says, “'I’m so boy-crazy... It's like I don't even know what's wrong with me. I love boys.” We’re sure boys feel exactly the same way about you, Lucy.
