The upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey movie is all the talk in Hollywood, even though it has yet to be cast. Everyone has their own opinions as to who should star as the sexy Christian Grey and innocent Ana Steele. MTV News recently threw its hat into the ring, pairing up The Vampire Diaries star Ian Somerhalder with Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale. It turns out that she’s open to, yet skeptical, at the possibility of playing the female protagonist.
“I’m definitely ready to explore a darker side,” she said of her acting career. But don’t expect her to be bringing her parents to the world premiere. “They would be banned,” she quickly responded when asked whether or not they’d see the film. “My father would…I don’t know.”
Despite her giddiness to play in the movie, she’s a bit doubtful that she’ll fit the role. She explains that she looks too young for 23-year-old Anastasia Steele, and might be better suited playing the younger sister. However, a youthful appearance is nothing that a little Hollywood magic can’t take care of. Besides, her “young” look could convince movie goers that Ana really is a virgin…before being corrupted by Christian Grey, of course.
But if Lucy Hale fails to be cast in a Fifty Shades of Grey movie role, at least she has the books. The actress admits to being on the second book in the series, which is making her “flustered.” At least if she fails to get a part in the film, she’s keeping busy in some other way.
