Lucy Hale Talks About Awkward 'Fifty Shades of Grey' Audition

Lucy Hale carries her iced coffee while leaving Fox & Friends following a visit to chat about her new album on Tuesday (July 1) in New York City.

The 25-year-old entertainer stopped by MTV to talk about auditioning for the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

“Awkward,” she said when asked how the audition went. “It was like a two-page monologue of dialogue of exactly what you would think it would be. 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.”

“It was unlike any audition I’ve ever done before in my life,” Lucy added. When asked what scene she auditioned with, she said “I don’t know if it was from another movie, but I think it was written just for this audition. Let’s just say I don’t want my grandmother watching this audition tape.”

    I loved Lucy Hale in the role of Kathie in A Cinderella Story : Once Upon A Song !!! She was so great and the duo Lucy Hale/Freddie Stroma was AMAZING !

  • leah

    Thank god she didn’t get the job , horrible actress . She is a wanna be – with her horrible songs . I don’t want hate on her , but that is just the way I feel

  • amanda

    A monologue of dialogue? Wow that’s….wow

  • Reb

    This girl tries so hard, but she just doesn’t pull it off. Her acting and singing are nothing new or original or great.

  • Moriarty

    I thought she would be better than this but i guess not. I’ll stick with Emma Watson…she flat out laughed when they mentioned this crap to her.

  • jay

    WOW a lot of people judging in here. @Moriarty: And please don’t act like Emma is above shitty roles like the Bling Ring…….

  • Katty

    And also because of that hearing talk now? Really, it makes no sense, especially if she dont like, she thought, is a erotic book. Thank God, it did not accept it as Mia Grey or Anastacia. I’m a fan of the book group that reads as follows: To be Cristian or Ana can not have shame or embarrassment, and should be an actor or actress willing to risk.

  • Lucy is Ana

    Lucy would have been perfect. She is a talented actress and has been in the business for a long time. She fits the description so well. Its a shame that they passed on her. Lucy is a natural beauty and she is also petite and cute. Dakota doesn’t even have any of the important features of the character. She is not small or has the large blue eyes. She is not innocent or youthful looking. Lucy Hale is what a 24 year old should look like.

  • Sorry Lucy

    @Lucy is Ana: Lucy is beautiful and would be a good Anna, at least in the physical, (she has not blue eyes, Dakota is closer), but she isn’t Anna… If she had been a good actress had not made an unfortunate and so embarrassing casting. The physical resemblance isn’t everything, you understand … Please don’t talk about age, is relative and subjective, I have 26 years and I look more younger than Lucy and Dakota.
