Taylor blackburn and ashley benson dating
Now going into season 6 on January 12, —the high school drama captivating an audience of teens and 20- and even 30-somethings—has included murder, secrets, lies, cover-ups, and most recently a transgender reveal, which has kept viewers on the edge of their seats (and live tweeting along the way).
Benson feels her fashion-loving character, Hanna, has evolved more than any of her her costars’—including Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, and Troian Bellisario.
“When you first meet Hanna, she’s the popular girl, but in her past she was an overweight outcast until Alison (Sasha Pieterse) gives her a full makeover,” says Benson.
“So when Alison disappears, Hanna becomes the school’s queen bee.” But life isn’t easy in fictional high school.
I don’t think you could ever get bored in Miami.” Even with her access to everything, Benson says her lifestyle is actually extremely tame compared to most 20-somethings, famous or not.
In fact the actress, who grew up in a strict household with a sheriff as a grandfather, was shocked while shooting the film in nearby St. “Since I’ve never been to college, I was asking everyone, ‘Is this what spring break is really like?
’ But most of the people in the background shots were really there on spring break, so all of that making out and getting naked was real.” The provocative 2012 movie, which follows a group of girls’ adventures robbing a restaurant to pay for their beach getaway, involves drug use, violence, and Benson filming a threesome with James Franco and Vanessa Hudgens.
It was quite the departure from the series that made Benson famous—and her own upbringing, for that matter.
“There’s going to be twists and turns in her new relationship, and Caleb’s going to be there. Fans are going to be surprised at how everything has turned out, but I think it will be a fun journey for them.” Benson, an Anaheim, California, native, started dancing competitively in ballet, jazz, and hip-hop when she was just 4 years old.
A lot of people in this industry hear they need to lose weight more times than they should. Because if you let that affect you, you can’t be in this industry—you’d go crazy.” Unrealistic beauty ideals are why Benson recently spoke out on social media about the dangers of Photoshop. “I hate to think that girls are like, ‘She’s so skinny! ’ I have pimples just like they do.” To prove it, the outspoken actress posted a photo of herself with dots of zit cream on her face on Instagram. “Because I wanted to show people I’m not perfect—no one is.” While she has achieved great success at a young age, unlike other child stars who have been in the headlines more for arrests and bad behavior than career milestones, Benson has never taken her eyes off her work.
“I saw photos from a shoot of myself just the other day and thought, What the hell? She can empathize with those who have gotten caught up in the fame, fortune, and pressure that come along with it, though.
You’re making a lot of money, there are a lot of temptations, and there are no consequences no matter what you’re doing.” Benson, whom The Daily Mail recently reported looked “worse for wear” leaving The Nice Guy bar in West Hollywood, is not saying she’s a saint.
“It’s fun to have drinks with friends, but I would never want to do anything that would sabotage my career,” she emphasizes.
has only become more popular, which has opened up doors in the movie world as well.
