Ashley Benson Covers ‘Seventeen’ April Issue

March 6, 2013


The “Pretty Little Liars” girls are all over the magazines this month! While Shay Mitchell covers Teen Vogue, Ashley Benson is taking over Seventeen!

Ashley is talking all about wanting to find a boyfriend for Shay, her movie Spring Breakers and more!

On Spring Breakers: Selena, Vanessa, and I all came from a Disney background, and [Spring Breakers] was different from anything we’ve done. But we wanted to prove that we’re not just girls who play happy parts. It was such a crazy experience—I’m so proud of all of us. I’m really excited for everybody to see it.

On her Justin Bieber Parody with James Franco: I haven’t heard from Selena [about the “Boyfriend” parody]! People thought that I was being mean, but I was just doing what the girl did in the video. It wasn’t a jab at her. But I heard from Justin. He wasn’t happy. Justin is like my little brother since he and my ex [Ryan Good] are so close. Anytime you go through a breakup, the friends get defensive. But all is well in that area now.

On finding a boyfriend for Shay Mitchell: One of my best friends is Shay Mitchell and she’ll be like, ‘I want a boyfriend!’ She’s been looking for three years…Every guy wants to date her, but she’s like, ‘No. No. No. No.’ I’m always on the lookout for Shay. Always. I’m always trying to get her a boyfriend!

On haters: I was in a bathing suit every single day [while filming Spring Breakers]. It definitely made me more confident. We had to do a bathing suit scene for PLL. The girls were like, ‘Oh my god, I don’t want to be in a bathing suit on screen!’ and I was like, ‘Whatever. Come on, throw it on me.’ It is what it is! People will make mean comments. People are going to say that you’re fat, that you’re this, that you’re that. You just have to be comfortable in your own skin.

On her dream career: I love Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman—those are the careers I want. My goal is to win an Oscar, and I’m going to take the steps to get there.
