This Pretty Little Liar is on her high road to the top, and there are sure to be a trail of sexy magazine covers along the way. Ashley Benson is the cover girl of the latest issue of Cosmopolitan Magazine, and she’s baring it PLL-style.
The cover image features Ashley in an oversized deep V sweater with nothing but a bra on underneath and that sultry look reserved just for covers like these. In the corresponding interview, the actress talks about everything from nudity on camera, to her relationship with Justin Bieber’s former stylist.
Check out some excerpts from the interview below.
On the wardrobe from Pretty Little Liars:
“The thing I always make fun of is the wardrobe. Really, do you think anyone would actually wear full hair and makeup and 6-inch heels to school? I was 13 when I was last in school, and I never wore makeup. I wasn’t allowed. Now [girls are] all wearing heels and makeup and getting their hair done, so I’m not sure it’s us influencing girls or that’s just the way it is now. If I had gone to high school, I would have rolled out of bed and showed up in sweats.”
On dealing with nudity on camera:
“I never want to do nudity that’s gratuitous. Girls look so much better in lingerie or a t-shirt and leave the rest up to the imagination. I make it clear that I have a line. Everyone tries to push you, and it’s easy to get talked into doing those things. I’ll just walk off-set. But not everyone realizes they can do that.”
On steering clear of drugs while growing up in Hollywood:
“There are drugs and alcohol in my family on both sides, so I’ve seen lives ruined, going to jail and all that. Once you start with any drug, it can be an addiction – that’s why I never want to start and am not even tempted, because that chain is relentless. And if it runs in your family, you see how unglamorous it is. I would never want to be out of control with my body.”
On her on-and-off-again boyfriend Ryan Good:
“Ryan is one of the strongest people I’ve met, so grounded and such a positive influence on people. We took a break because it was so hard. I work 20 hour days, so I’m always gone. So a lot of your relationship is on the phone and iChatting and trying to catch up.”
