Ashley Benson Gets Candid About the Pressure to Lose Weight in Hollywood
From the outside looking in, Ashley Benson is on top of the world. The stunning Pretty Little Liars actress has a successful career and an awesome girl squad, but she recently shared intimate details about Hollywood's pressure to maintain a slim figure in an interview for her March Health magazine cover story.
"I get told all the time to lose weight. I got that a month ago. It's just weird," Ashley told Health. But Ashley has remained true to herself despite the pressures from Hollywood.

As for her go-to workout move, Benson says squats give her the biggest results. Keep scrolling for a glimpse at her gorgeous spread in the magazine on stands now.
