In an industry where most famous females like to pretend they "woke up like this," Lucy Hale is a breath of fresh air.
The Pretty Little Liars starlet covers the September issue of Cosmopolitan and gets candid about the pressure to look perfect all the time on her hit ABC Family show.
"[Pretty Little Liars] is about how we look too," she explains. "That's terrifying sometimes because you're breaking out or you feel gross and you still have to be in front of the camera."
In fact, Lucy and her castmates have been outspoken about telling fans that what you see on TV and in photoshopped magazine spreads isn't the real deal.
"We'll post pictures on Instagram and people will be like, 'Y'all are so flawless.' Little do they know it's fake hair, fake eyelashes and a good filter. Little girls see that and think they have to be like that."
The 25-year-old singer overcame an eating disorder herself in the past, so it's great to see her being so real and open about the false expectations of perfection that Hollywood can project. You go, girl!
