Ugh, Hollywood can be the worst sometimes.
Even though Ashley Benson is a size freakin' 2 and utterly flawless, she says she's constantly told to trim down in order to get movie and TV roles.
As Health mag's March cover girl, the Pretty Little Liars' star opens up about not giving into the intense pressure to be crazy-thin in the industry.

The 26-year-old explained:
"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.' 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…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."
As far as her workout regimen goes, the blonde beauty stays in shape with a combination of pilates, cycling, and boxing:
"I usually do Pilates three days a week for an hour, and I try to box or do SoulCycle two or three times a week. There are times I just want to do nothing! But then I don't feel good about myself."
The Spring Breakers actress said she looks up to Gwyneth Paltrow as her "healthy-living idol":
