Ashley Benson Opens Up About Getting Called 'Too Fat' For Roles

Ashley Benson gives a stunning stare on the March 2016 cover of Health magazine, on newsstands February 12.

The 26-year-old actress opened up about body confidence, the pressure to lose weight and why she hates going on dates.

Here’s what Ashley had to share with the mag:

On being called overweight: “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?’ 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.”

On handling body confidence on bad days: “If I have to go to an event and I’m not feeling my best? Spanx all the way. Literally. Even if you don’t need them.”

On why she doesn’t like going on dates: “I will never! A group date, hanging out one-on-one, yeah. But not, like, an actual date. I don’t know what I would talk about! All my friends are like, ‘Go on blind dates.’ I’m like, ‘No. Nope.’”
