Benson rejected for being 'too fat'

LOS ANGELES: American actress Ashley Benson has revealed that she was once rejected for a movie role for being “too fat”.

The Pretty Little Liars star made the revelation in a new interview that featured in Ocean Drive’s January issue, reports

“I’m a size 2! I cried for 30 minutes, but then you have to let it roll off your shoulders or it could cause a serious eating disorder,” Benson told the South Florida-based magazine.

“A lot of people in this industry hear they need to lose weight more times than they should. It does make you stronger, though. Because if you let that affect you, you can’t be in this industry — you’d go crazy,” she added.

A few months ago, the 26-year-old beauty posted a selfie where parts of her face were covered in pimple cream and she said that she wanted to show it to the world that she is not perfect.

“Because I wanted to show people I’m not perfect — no one is,” she said.

“I hate to think that girls are like, ‘She’s so skinny! Her skin is so perfect!’ I have pimples just like they do,” she added.
