Ashley Victoria Benson (born December 18, 1989) is an American film and television actress, and model. Ashley Benson currently stars in ABC's 2009 television series Eastwick. Ashley has also appeared in the film 13 Going on 30 as one of the "Six Chicks".
She may be one of the hottest ladies in Hollywood, but even Ashley Benson has dealt with body shaming issues from time to time.
In her cover story for Health magazine’s March 2016 issue, the “Pretty Little Liars” lady reveals,"I get told all the time to lose weight. I got that a month ago. It's just weird. With my stuff recently, it's been, 'You have to be skin and bones or you're not getting it.'"
It’s no secret that Tinseltown bosses can be quite superficial, and Ashley Benson told Ocean Drive magazine that even she has been called chubby by nasty casting directors.
The “Pretty Little Liars” lady explained, “I was just told I was too fat for a part. I'm a size two! 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.”
With Halloween just around the corner, stars like Ashley Benson are already planning what they’ll wear to this year’s swanky costume parties.
The “Pretty Little Liars” lady posted a selfie while wearing a Cecil the Lion getup, hoping to get some feedback from her Instagram followers. She wrote, "Help! Can't decide on my Halloween costume this year! What do you guys thing of this Cecil the Lion costume?"
They’re all on top of their respective games, so it’s no wonder Mindy Kaling, Yolanda Foster and Gillian Anderson made the cut for the August 2015 Pop issue of W magazine.
Joined by talented folks like Lauren Cohan, Thomas Middleditch, Jussie Smollett, Ashley Benson, Derek Hough and Jay and Mark Duplass, these television stars talk about how they do their thing so well. Kaling explains, “A lot of people say you shouldn’t serialize TV comedy, that you should be able to turn on an episode of, say, Seinfeld, and have it stand on its own. But it would be hard to have this woman who wants so badly to change in a show that doesn’t. I want you to keep checking in with these characters.”
