Lucy Hale Opens Up About Her Audition For 50 Shades of Grey

Published

on

Let’s be honest. We’re all desperately waiting for Fifty Shades of Grey, starring Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele and Jamie Dornan as the rich, S&M obsessed Christian Grey.

But let’s imagine for a moment that Dakota wasn’t playing Ana. There was a time when the role was open and many young Hollywood actresses were fighting for a chance at the controversial role. Pretty Little Liars Lucy Hale was one of them.

If you ever wondered what it was like to audition for a movie like 50 shades, you’re in lucky. While Hale didn’t make the cute (and I’m kind of glad she didn’t), she did share details of her awkward audition process with MTV.

She admitted that reading for the role of Steele was “unlike any audition i’d ever done before in my life.”

“Let’s just say I don’t want my grandmother watching that audition tape,” she continued. “[It was] awkward.”

“It was just me. It was a two-page monologue of … exactly what you think it would be,” she said. “Very uncomfortable.” We’re assuming she’s referring to one of the many sex scenes in the book. Doing a monologue to any of one those scenes had to be super weird.

“It was sort of one of those things where you just had to go with it or you’re gonna look lame,” she added. “Hopefully, I didn’t look lame!”

Despite being so risque, it was a much sought after role and Hale was set on doing her best, giving it her all and hoping to score. (No pun intended.)

“I think any girl in my demographic would have loved to be a part of it,” she admitted. “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.”

What are your thoughts? Would you rather have seen Lucy in the role of Ana instead of Dakota Johnson?

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3 Trailer: Being The Queen of Hell is Hard Work

Chilling Adventures of Sabrina Season 3 Trailer

If you can’t contain your excitement for the season 3 of Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, join the club.

The new trailer for the series premiering on January 24 (soon) on Netflix introduces us to Sabrina: the Queen of Hell.

“You know what you have to do, Sabrina. Claim the throne,” a voice begins as Sabrina realizes she has to make the ultimate sacrifice to “save her precious Greendale” and her boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch, who sacrificed himself in season 2 to save his girl.

With the balance off in hell, heaven, and Earth, things are a little wonky yet also much darker than in previous seasons. There’s also new demons, cheerleading practice, and Sabrina wearing a lot of white colors.

“Hell’s under new management now,” Sabrina declares confidently.

Though, Sabrina’s decision doesn’t sit well with Aunt Zelda who informs her “being Queen of Hell” isn’t a summer job.

“You’re putting the whole coven in peril just so you can see your boyfriend.”

Watch the trailer above.

According to the Netflix synopsis: “Part Three finds Sabrina reeling from the harrowing events of Part Two. Though she defeated her father Lucifer, the Dark Lord remains trapped within the human prison of her beloved boyfriend, Nicholas Scratch.”

The series also put out this fun and twisted music video. It’s catchy — you’ve been warned.

Joe Goldberg Stalks Again as Netflix Renews YOU for Season 3

YOU Renewed For Season 3

Joe Goldberg will stalk again when YOU returns for its recently renewed third season!

Netflix gave the official green-light to the Penn Badgley-fronted drama on Tuesday.

“See you soon neighbor,” the YOU Twitter account posted along with a video teasing the new season.

The series originally premiered on Lifetime but found massive success after scoring a streaming deal on Netflix.

By the time the second season premiered on Dec. 26, it was one of Netflix’s most-watched premieres of 2019.

With Joe Goldberg becoming a pop culture phenomenon, the show gaining a massive following, and the second season ending on a mighty cliffhanger, a renewal was almost a sure thing.

Entertainment Weekly reports that season 3 will consist of 10 new episodes. Badgley will reprise his role as the stalker/killer who’s trying his best while his baby momma Victoria Pedretti will return as the equally deranged, Love.

The new season will premiere sometime in 2021 and will hopefully give us the following answers (spoilers ahead):

  • Who is the neighbor and will she become the object of Joe’s affection? Could Beck be alive? Is it Beck’s sister? A total stranger?
  • How are Love and Joe preparing to be parents?
  • Are they going to continue killing together?
  • Is it Joe’s baby? Or did Love lie?
  • What happened to Ellie? We seriously hope she’s okay.
  • Will we get more clarity on what happened to Joe’s mother?

The series is based on two bestsellers from Caroline Kepnes, “YOU” and “Hidden Bodies.” She’s currently writing the third book, though it’s unclear if it will be the basis for the upcoming season, especially given how much has changed in the screen-adaptation.

Just remember Joe, we know where the bodies are buried.

Are you planning a long trip and worry you might not have an internet connection that will allow you to watch your favorite shows like Stranger Things, You, Dead 2 Me, and more? Even if you have on-board internet, it’s rarely powerful enough to load images or videos on social media let alone a whole show or film.

But worry not, because Netflix has a solution for you!

The streaming service allows you to download select TV shows and movies on the Netflix app to watch offline later.

In order to successfully download shows and movies for your offline binge-ing, here’s what you need: an internet connection (for downloading), an active Netflix account, a device running iOS 9.0 or later,  Android 4.4.2 or later, Fire OS 4.0 or later, Windows 10 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update) or later.

Downloading will NOT work on computer browsers as this function is only available for smartphones or tablets.
Be aware that you’re only able to watch the downloaded shows and films on the device that you downloaded them on.
Now that we have that out of the way, you’re probably wondering “how do I download my titles.”
 Well, I’m glad you asked! If you have a particular title in mind, you can search for it and look for the download icon.

If it is available for download, simply click the icon and it will appear in your “My Downloads” section of the app.
Note: TV shows will have the icons next to each available episode.
If you do not see the download icon, that means that either the episode or film is not available for download or your device does not meet the criteria.
While not everything may be available for download, the streaming service has made it really easy to locate the titles there are by offering them under “Available for Downloads.”
So, even if your show or film isn’t downloadable, with Netflix’s wide-array of titles, we’re certain you’ll find something that will keep you entertained.
Other questions will be answered on the Netflix HELP page.
