American actress and model Ashley Benson revealed she was pressured to lose weight for certain roles. The 26-year-old, who is well known for her role as Hanna Marin on the teen drama Pretty Little Liars, had to face a lot of criticism for her body shape.
"I get told all the time to lose weight. I got that a month ago. It's just weird. With my stuff recently, it's been, "You have to be skin and bones or you're not getting it." There was a point where it was getting to where a size 2 was great. I'm a size 2, but I think that a size 4 is healthy. I think that all of these sizes are healthy," she told Health magazine.
"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," Benson added.
Adding on, the Spring Breakers star said she would like to swap bodies with Channing Tatum's wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum. She said: "She is, like, the cutest thing. Her body right now is so incredible—and she's had a kid! I would obviously say, like, every supermodel, like Candice Swanepoel and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley—but that is just so not my body."
Benson was in an on-again-off-again relationship with the former stylist of Justin Bieber, Ryan Good. In December 2014, the two called it quits. She dished about her current relationship status to the publication: "Dating is so complicated. No, I'm not dating. I hate it. It's the worst!"
