The 26-year-old actress opened up to Ocean Drive about beauty ideals in Hollywood, the upcoming season of Pretty Little Liars and partying with Selena Gomez.

On unrealistic beauty ideals in Hollywood: “I was just told I was too fat for a part. 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.”
