The ladies of Pretty Little Liars – Troian Bellisario, Shay Mitchell, Ashley Benson, and Lucy Hale – look smoking hot in this new photo spread from GQ‘s June 2014 issue.
Troian has taken to her Instagram account to defend the use of Photoshop in the shoot and to post some non-retouched photos as well!
“So by now you have seen many a shot from #GQ and many people have said that we were photoshopped… OF COURSE WE WERE! That’s a very specific type of photo shoot. And looking very blown out and perfected was obviously what they were looking for. Great. Cool. As long as we acknowledge how it was achieved so we know it’s not real,” Troian said in her long message.
“Here’s some behind the scenes of my body the way it is and was on the day. I’m not mad at how these pictures turned out, the girls and I had an absolute blast,” Troian added. “More fun than we’ve had on a photoshoot in a while, and I think you can see that in our eyes and smiles. But it’s the same everywhere. It’s the same way on the posters of our show and even in women’s magazines. This industry seems to invest more in perfection than in flaw. But flaw and individuality, to me, are what make a human being interesting, they make our stories worth telling. (Unfortunately the flaws don’t usually sell products or magazines) I’m proud of my body and the way it looks because @themarkwildman kicks my butt in aerial. But my hips and thighs are a part of me (even though they magically weren’t in some shots!) I get those things from my momma. And I’m happy To shake what my momma gave me.”
