Fifty Shades of Grey: Rita Ora Reveals How She Landed Her Role

Fifty Shades of Grey: Rita Ora Reveals How She Landed Her RoleRita Ora — who currently winning praise for her coaching role on The Voice — is one of the biggest stars on the planet.

But she has faced rejection many times. “I’ve been told ‘no’ so many times in my career,” she tells InStyle for its April UK issue. “It doesn’t mean it’s over…I can remember every single ‘no’ I’ve been told in my life.”

“They do not leave my brain. But they build you up.” She originally approached the production hoping to contribute to the film’s soundtrack.

“I auditioned like everybody else – there were a lot of other people in the frame. I didn’t get any special treatment. I perfected my American accent, one thing led to another, and I got it.”

The RIP hitmaker asserted that her built-up confidence led her to contact Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson.

Rita Ora told the magazine, “I said I’d love to involved as I was such a fan of the book. And then Sam said, ‘Well, why don’t you audition?'”

“And I said, ‘Sure…I’ve got a few song ideas, I could send them over…’ and she said, ‘No, why don’t you audition for the movie?”

The “Black Widow” beauty told that she could remember every single “no” she had been told in her life.

The British songstress Rita Ora appears in less than two minutes of the 125-minute film. She also opened about that she said only four sentences in the movie.

She told MTV last year, “I prepped for the role by learning some French first of all, by learning an American accent and by really just not being me.”

“It was really nice to get into a whole other world that I wasn’t used to, but it was pretty difficult”. The 24-year-old ‘Hot Right Now’ singer was spotted yesterday at Italian restaurant The Nice Guy in West Hollywood.

Wearing a plunging neckline the generously cut dress, Rita Ora was there for a dinner date with boyfriend Ricky Hil, the son of American fashion designer Tommy Hilfiger.
