Shay Mitchell Wanted to Be on a Show Like 'Gossip Girl'

Shay Mitchell shows off her killer figure on the November 2016 cover of Self magazine.

Here’s what the 29-year-old Pretty Little Liars actress had to share with the mag:

On starting off as a waitress: “I would walk around as though I were in a movie. I was already a successful actress in my mind…It was a corkboard in my kitchen, with pictures of the Hollywood sign and Gossip Girl because I wanted to be on a show like that. I really believe in the power of visualizing—having faith—and then working your ass off.”

On being bullied as a kid: “Instead of going to the cafeteria, I’d say, ‘Why deal with this?’ and I’d eat in a bathroom stall. At least when I left school for the day, it stopped. It doesn’t now. You have your phone on you, and the bullying continues. I can’t imagine having all these inescapable outlets when I was that age.”

On PLL ending: “It was an amazing experience. The crew, the cast—they’re my family.”
