Lucy Hale: Hollywood's Image of Women Is 'Terrifying'


Don't let the sexy Cosmopolitan magazine cover fool you about how Lucy Hale really feels about Hollywood's representation of women -- though it may seem a bit contradictory.

The Pretty Little Liars star is seen in a barely-there mini-dress and a sexed-up hairstyle for her Cosmo shoot, but says she has a problem with 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," the 25-year-old singer/actress told the women's magazine. "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."
