Ashley Benson said she’s been denied roles because Hollywood thinks she’s “too fat.”
During an interview with Ocean Drive magazine, the “Pretty Little Liars” actress defended her body.
“I was just told I was too fat for a part,” Benson 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,” she added.
Benson said she’s no fan of photoshop either.
“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,” Benson said.
“I hate to think that girls are like, ‘She’s so skinny! Her skin is so perfect!’ I have pimples just like they do.” (PHOTOS: Ashley Benson Wears Nothing Underneath In New Magazine Spread)
