‘Too fat’ for roles! Ashley Benson on her size struggle with Hollywood


Nothing is more infuriating than hearing young, healthy actresses are being told to lose weight, which Ashley Benson has revealed happens to her all the time.

Speaking to Health magazine, the Pretty Little Liars star revealed that she is regularly told that she is she too big for parts. 

"It's come up a few times in the last few years, like 'You're too fat for this', and I'm just sitting here like, 'Wait! What? Do you want a skeleton?' "

At a size two, which translates into a UK size six, the star has revealed that she feels good in her body. 

"But I feel good. I don't want to lose 20 pounds, because I don't need to… I get told all the time to lose weight…

"There was a point where it was getting to where a size two was great. I'm a size two, but I think that size four is healthy. I think that all of these sizes are healthy."

All that hassle at a size six!! We can't even…

The star also gave her fans insight into her exercise routine. 

"I usually do Pilates three days a week for an hour, and I try to box or do SoulCycle two or three times a week," she explained.

"There are times I just want to do nothing! But then I don't feel good about myself."
