'Fifty Shades of Grey' audition script was 'intense,' says 'Carrie Diaries' star Chloe Bridges

We spent so much time thinking about the actors we wanted to play Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in the upcoming Fifty Shades of Grey adaptation that we never stopped to think about what would actually go into the audition process. Which scene would the actors have to read? Perhaps the first time Christian and Ana meet? Or maybe the final scene of the book (you know the one)?

And although the details are still unknown, Carrie Diaries star Chloe Bridges recently told Cosmopolitan a little something about the script she was given to read in the audition room.

“There were three pages of sides that I was going to audition with,” Bridges said. “I read them and then was like, ‘I really can’t do this.'”

So of the two options we proposed, it certainly sounds like the scene was closer in nature to the latter. “If you read these three pages of asides, you would die,” said Bridges, who plays the saucy Donna LaDonna on Diaries and has had her fair share of racy scenes — just not this racy. “I still like to show them to my friends for fun,” Bridges said.

First look at 'Sex and the City' prequel's Carrie Bradshaw -- PHOTO

After hearing that 18-year-old AnnaSophia Robb would play the title character in The CW’s The Carrie Diaries, we couldn’t help but wonder: Does this bright-eyed former child star have what it takes to fill Carrie Bradshaw’s famous Manolos?

Though we won’t know for sure unless The Carrie Diaries — a Sex and the City prequel based on Candace Bushnell’s eponymous book — gets picked up for fall, this new photo proves that Robb at least looks the part. Her character has Carrie’s trademark dirty blond waves, as well as her flamboyant fashion sense.

Check out the first official photo of Robb from the pilot’s set below. READ FULL STORY
