On Lucy’s latest project, making a country music album:
“So many people didn’t want to touch the project with a 10-foot pole. Literally, I had people laughing and saying, ‘You’re making an album? Good luck.’ … But if you sit down and talk music with me for 10 minutes, you know that’s my passion.”

On the superficial image Hollywood sells to young women:
“[Pretty Little Liars] is about how we look too. That’s terrifying sometimes because you’re breaking out or you feel gross and you still have to be in front of the camera. We’ll post pictures on Instagram and people will be like, ‘Y’all are so flawless.’ Little do they know it’s fake hair, fake eyelashes, and a good filter. Little girls see that and think they have to be like that.”

On auditioning to play Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades of Grey:
“That audition was so uncomfortable! It’s exactly what you thought it would be: a big monologue but very, very sexual…there were some things that I was so embarrassed to be reading out loud, but it’s one of those things where you have to commit wholeheartedly or you’re going to make a fool of yourself.”

Seventeen JuneJuly 2013 Lucy Hale

Lucy Hale – star of ABC Family’s hit show Pretty Little Liars – shines on the June/July cover of Seventeen magazine. In the interview, hitting newsstands, May 21st, Lucy opens up to Seventeen about how Kelly Clarkson changed her life, the depression that nearly crushed her dreams and her upcoming country album.

Watch out Taylor Swift! Lucy Hale opens up to Seventeen about her new plans for country music superstardom!

Of her new album she explains, “My album is something I’m really, really, really proud of. I’ve intentionally been quiet about it because I want the music to speak for itself. People are either going to love it or hate it. But I think that once they hear it, they’ll be like, “Okay, she loves this and is serious about it.” This is my pride and joy—it’s my baby! I worked my butt off on it.”

Lucy Hale And Uncle Terry Team Up for BONGO-Spring 2013

lucy-hale

The fabulous BONGO line has unveiled its new Spring 2013 campaign today featuring actress/singer Lucy Hale, star of ABC Family’s “Pretty Little Liars”. Let’s girl is so adorable! Hale is continuing her association with Bongo, previously Lucy co-starred with Ashley Benson in the junior brand’s 2012 campaign. She seems to be the perfect spokesperson for this brand. Isn’t she a doll?!

The campaign was shot by iconic photographer, Terry Richardson. I’m usually not a big fan of Richardson’s work, but this creative reflects Richardson’s signature sexy style as Hale poses with fun and playful props including an oversized phone, a bubble machine, a fishbowl and a hula-hoop.

The national campaign will debut this March in fashion, lifestyle and entertainment magazines. Bongo is available exclusively available at Sears and Kmart.

Lucy Hale Opens Up About Eating Disorder

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Pretty Little LiarsLucy Hale plays the beautiful, fashion-forward, and confident Aria on the ABC Family hit show. However, Lucy herself battled with her own personal demons. In a personal interview with Cosmopolitan, she admitted to suffering from an eating disorder in her past.

“I’ve never really talked about this, but I would go days without eating,” Lucy shared. “Or maybe I’d have some fruit and then go to the gym for three hours. I knew I had a problem … It was a gradual process but I changed myself.”

In the interview for the September issue, Lucy also opened up about her new man, actor Chris Zylka.  “I was like, ‘Holy crap you’re gorgeous!'” she said about her boyfriend. “It was like no one else was there. We couldn’t stop talking.”

In a 2010 interview with PEOPLE , Lucy said that her ideal match has “got to be a gentleman. He’s got to have a good relationship with his mom, because I feel like that says a lot. He’s got to be pretty hysterical. I don’t want just funny. He’s got to make me laugh pretty hard.” I guess Chris matches that description for her!

A bit surprising to hear of Lucy’s eating disorder, but what matters most now is that she has gotten better. A healthy body image is key, yet understandably a struggle in the entertainment biz. I love her as an actress and hope to see more of her in the future.
