Lucy Hale Looks Back at 'Fifty Shades' Audition: 'I Was Mortified'

Lucy Hale is opening up about auditioning for the role of Anastasia Steele in the movie Fifty Shades of Grey.

The casting process for the movie happened in the summer of 2013, when Lucy was starring on the Freeform series Pretty Little Liars. The role ended up going to Dakota Johnson.

“I was very young. It had to have been, not 10 years ago, it was a while ago and I was mortified,” Lucy told the Associated Press about her audition. “It wasn’t actual scenes from the movie, but it was a very sexually forward monologue and I didn’t really even know what I was saying in the audition. I was a little naive about it all, but yes, I did audition. I obviously didn’t get the part, but it was good for me because it scared the crap out of me to do an audition [like that].”

Lucy previously talked about her audition during a Cosmopolitan cover story in 2014.
