One of the actresses who auditioned for the role of Ana Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey may have just dropped a big hint about how steamy the love scenes actually get! Lucy Hale chatted with MTV News this week and opened up about the casting process.
The 25-year-old Pretty Little Liars star was one of many ladies who threw her hat into the ring to play the lead in the movie version of E.L. James' runaway bestseller. The part eventually went to Dakota Johnson, but she and the other stars have been frustratingly close-lipped about exactly how raunchy the film is going to be.
But Lucy didn't have to sign a gag order! She said auditioning for the film was "uncomfortable," thanks to lines they gave her to read from the script.
In case you've been living under a rock, Fifty Shades of Grey's plot line revolves around the BDSM relationship between naive and virginal Anastasia Steele and the high-powered and "fifty shades of f***ed up" businessman Christian Grey.
Hale said, "It actually was just me [in the audition] ... it was a two-page monologue of exactly what you would think it would be." She continued, "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."
What the heck did they want her to read that, as a professional actress, she found "uncomfortable"?
She admitted that she auditioned for the role because she wanted to play "something a little different" than her other work. She's best known for Pretty Little Liars, but she's also made appearances on How I Met Your Mother, CSI: Miami, and Private Practice.
"I think any girl in my demographic would have loved to be a part of it," she added. "Mainly, I was just interested in doing something risky and doing something a little different than my character on PLL so it took me out of my comfort zone."
I'm thinking this is a pretty good indication that the movie stays pretty true to the book!
How raunchy do you think Fifty Shades is going to get?
