Lucy Hale Auditioned for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’

Surprise, surprise: your favorite Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale could have been cast as Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey.

Maybe she was cast in another life. I’d like to transfer to that dimension.

In an interview with Cosmopolitan, Lucy Hale talks about her role as Aria Montgomery, her music, and her kinky audition.

“That audition was so uncomfortable!” she said. “It’s exactly what you thought it would be: a big monologue but very, very sexual … there were some things that I was so embarrassed to be reading out loud, but it’s one of those things where you have to commit wholeheartedly or you’re going to make a fool of yourself.”

Earlier this week, Lucy Hale’s father joked about the captions surrounding her cover photo.

“Just saw your pic on Cosmo, you look wonderful,” read a text message from Papa Hale. “Not [too] crazy about the articles beside your photo. Love u.”

She wrote back, “Hahaha thanks daddy. I love you,” followed by three hearts.

What a cute way for father and daughter to bond over text.

The Lucy Hale September issue of Cosmopolitan hits stands August 12.

That’s pretty amazing.

Rumor has is that Real Housewives of Atlanta star NeNe Leakes might play alongside Palmer as the fairy godmother.

That’s gonna be one for the critics.

The play currently features Nancy Opel as Madame, Joe Carroll as Prince Topher, Tony winner Victoria Clark as Marie, Ann Harada as Charlotte, Stephanie Gibson as Gabrielle, Todd Buonopane as Jean-Michel, Peter Bartlett as Sebastian and Phumzile Sojola as Lord Pinkleton.
