Lucy Hale auditioned for the most sought-after role in Hollywood - Anastasia Steele of ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’. Did it cause the split with her boyfriend Joel Crouse? But ‘Pretty Little Liars’ actress isn’t losing sleep over ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ audition, though she says it was “so uncomfortable”. With her country music album, she is ready to move on.

Lucy Hale recounted her audition for ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ for Cosmopolitan.

“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.”

But she is almost glad that she didn’t score the lead role, which eventually went to Dakota Johnson. ‘Pretty Little Liar’ actress thinks that it’s not always so healthy to focus on looking good for the camera.

“We’ll post pictures on Instagram and people will be like, ‘Y’all are so flawless.’ Little do they know it’s fake hair, fake eyelashes, and a good filter. Little girls see that and think they have to be like that.”

She broke up with her boyfriend Joel Crouse and the rumors are that it may have been somewhat related to her ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’ audition. But the specifics of their split remains unclear.

Instead, Lucy Hale is redirecting all her energy on her music career.

“So many people didn’t want to touch the project with a 10-foot pole. Literally, I had people laughing and saying, ‘You’re making an album? Good luck,’" she continued on Cosmopolitan. "But if you sit down and talk music with me for 10 minutes, you know that’s my passion.”

Is Lucy Hale completely over her boyfriend Joel Crouse and not getting the role of a lifetime on ‘Fifty Shades of Grey’? Or is this all an act? Let me know what you think in the comments below!
