Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale felt ''very uncomfortable'' during her audition for Fifty Shades of Grey.

Speaking about her audition for the lead role of Anastasia Steele in the big screen adaptation of E.L. James' erotic novel, Hale said: ''It was a two-page monologue of exactly what you would think it would be. Very uncomfortable, but it was sort of one of those things where you just had to go for it or you're just gonna look lame - hopefully, I didn't look lame, but yeah. It was unlike any audition I have ever done before in my life.''

Hale further told MTV News that she's slightly relieved that the part eventually went to Dakota Johnson, as she would have felt uncomfortable watching the x-rated movie with her family.

She added ''Let's just say I wouldn't want my grandma watching this audition tape.''
