Looks like someone’s trying to give A something to talk about.
A new episode of Pretty Little Liars airs tonight, but Lucy Hale is bringing the scandal off the small screen and onto the cover of Cosmopolitan.
Wearing a super sexy minidress with a triangular cut-out across her chest and her hair slicked back, the girl who plays a high schooler is looking all grown up. Inside the September issue, she isn’t sharing any secrets about the hit TV show, but she does open up about her music, auditioning to play Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, and more.
On her country music album:
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.” … But if you sit down and talk music with me for 10 minutes, you know that’s my passion.
On auditioning for Fifty Shades of Grey:
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.
On the superficial image Hollywood sells to young women:
[Pretty Little Liars] is about how we look too. That’s terrifying sometimes because you’re breaking out or you feel gross and you still have to be in front of 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.
