The casting process for Fifty Shades of Grey was a long a winding road that threw many names at us along the way, but did you know that Lucy Hale could have been Anastasia Steele?

The [Pretty Little Liars ](series:201848) actress opened up to Cosmopolitan Magazine about the "uncomfortable" and "incredibly sexual" [Fifty Shades of Grey](movie:391697) audition that almost put her on the big screen as Anastasia.

The 25-year-old actress admitted that interviewing for the erotic thriller was a bit more than she bargained for. Hale told interviewers that;

That audition was so uncomfortable! 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.

Although she wasn't an immediate fan favorite, maybe it's better that Dakota Johnson was chosen for the saucy role.

The relatively unknown 24-year-old actress admitted in an interview last year that;

I don't have any problem doing anything... The secret is I have no shame

Which makes Johnson seem like much better gal to roll with the blushes and beatings that Christian Grey is going to dish up in his red room!


Are you pleased with the casting choice of Dakota Johnson for Fifty Shades of Grey?
