Once upon a time there were rumors that Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale (Aria) could be up for the lead in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie. Lucy certainly expressed interest in entering that sexy film's twisted romance as Anastasia Steele, and she did audition for the part — and, surprise, surprise, it was awkward.
In a recent interview with MTV, Lucy recalled auditioning for the role, explaining that she had to tackle a two page monologue that was "exactly what you would think it would be."
For those somehow unfamiliar with the pop culture phenomenon, Fifty Shades is the story of a young college girl who falls for a billionaire with a taste for S&M. So it's no surprise that Lucy called the audition material "very uncomfortable."
That said, the racy monologue didn't put Lucy off. She says that she would have been interested in the part, since it's "something a little different" from what she's done before. No kidding! She added that in the audition she "just had to go for it." If she hadn't, it would fall flat. "Hopefully I didn't look lame."
While Lucy didn't get the part — it went to Dakota Johnson — we're sure she didn't "look lame." She's too good for that!
