Lucy Hale's 'Very, Very Sexual and Embarrassing' Fifty Shades of Grey Audition

Lucy Hale found auditioning for the part of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey to be incredibly "uncomfortable" (no shit!).

The Pretty Little Liars actress admits reading some of the more explicit lines out loud was difficult, if not impossible - which would explain why she didn't get the part.

"It's exactly what you thought it would be," Lucy told Cosmopolitan magazine. "A big monologue but very, very sexual…there were some things that I was so embarrassed to be reading out loud. It's one of those things where you have to commit wholeheartedly or you're going to make a fool of yourself."

The part of Anastasia eventually went to Dakota Johnson, who we assume read the horrendously-written prose with more conviction.
