Back before it was officially announced that Dakota Johnson had been cast in the role of Anastasia Steele in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, there were a number of stars being linked to the role, with even more actually heading to an audition. While some big names were linked to the role, there were also plenty of smaller names involved.
One such actress who auditioned for the role of Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey, was The Carrie Diaries star Chloe Bridges. While Chloe was unsuccessful in her audition, she made it pretty clear that she would have struggled with the role anyway, due to the graphic details of the script.
Bridges explained at the time, "The scene was, like, the girl telling her friends about some sexcapade she had, but it goes into extreme detail and uses the word sperm a couple times,” before admitting that she read the scene “and then was like, I really can’t do this."
Dakota Johnson was eventually confirmed as Anastasia Steele for Fifty Shades of Grey, alongside Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam. Unfortunately, Charlie decided to pull out of the project and was swiftly replaced by Once Upon a Time actor Jamie Dornan. Fifty Shades of Grey will open on February 13, 2015.
