Hollywood can be harsh. Ashley Benson revealed during an interview with Ocean Drive magazine that as a size 2 in Tinseltown, she’s considered fat.
“I was just told I was too fat for a part,” the January 2016 cover girl said. “I’m a size 2! I cried for 30 minutes, but then you have to let it roll off your shoulders or it could cause a serious eating disorder. A lot of people in this industry hear they need to lose weight more times than they should. It does make you stronger, though. Because if you let that affect you, you can’t be in this industry — you’d go crazy.”
One thing that does make the Pretty Little Liars star, 26, crazy? Photoshop.
“I saw photos from a shoot of myself just the other day and thought, ‘What the hell? That doesn’t even look like me!’ I was so disappointed,” she recalled. “I hate to think that girls are like, ‘She’s so skinny! Her skin is so perfect!’ I have pimples just like they do.”
In October, Benson posted a photo of herself with acne treatment on her face to prove her point.
“I wanted to show people I’m not perfect,” Benson explained on her Instagram. “No one is.”
