7 PLL Stars Who Got Real About Their Health, Weight & Eating Disorders
Ever since Pretty Little Liars premiered in 2010, the show, while at times can be slightly unrealistic, has covered some real AF teen issues on screen, like coming out, mental health, financial struggles and eating disorders. But it’s not only in the fictional Rosewood that PLL is helping young peeps deal with the everyday struggle of life in high school (and beyond).
The stars of the show have found themselves as role models for their young fans and, while speaking out about about super personal issues, like weight woes, eating disorders and their health regimens can perhaps feel a bit uncomfortable, they realize how their voice can change the world and help someone else who is struggling. Seven of your fave stars of the Freeform hit (which is, sadly, coming to an end soon) have realized that when you’re a star, basically nothing is TMI, and talked about body image issues and more during honest interviews that show just how strong these women (and men!) truly are:
Lucy knows her body is a temple — which is actually why she's quit drinking! The PLL star doesn't drink alcohol because she has "no interest" in the party scene, according to her recent interview with Byrdie, but she's also very thoughtful about her workout regimen.
"I like to run and I work out with a great trainer sometimes. I recently got into hot yoga," she told E! News, "which was, up until a few months ago, like, forbidden! I hate the heat, but having to stand still and relax has been really good for me... I enjoy exercise, I'm lucky in that sense… but I love food just as much as I love working out! It's kind of a good balance."
While nowadays Luce has a great handle on her health and body, she admitted to Cosmopolitan that she used to suffer from an eating disorder. "I've never really talked about this, but I would go days without eating. 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." We're so proud!
