On the pressures of looking perfect:

As a younger woman, that pressure got me down, but I’ve made my peace with it. With airbrushing and digital manipulation, fashion can project an unobtainable image that’s dangerously unhealthy. I’m excited about the aging process. I’m more interested in women who aren’t perfect. They’re more compelling.

… says Emma.

Troian Bellisario: “It’s a struggle to be on a show that has the word ‘pretty’ in it!”

28 year-old Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario recently opened up about her eating disorder and the insecurities brought by being on a show with many beautiful actresses:

On her disordered past:

‘I started self-harming when I was a junior. I would withhold food or withhold going out with my friends, based on how well I did that day in school. Being a teenager is chaotic because you’re kind of coming into your own. I didn’t know what was right and what was wrong, so I think I created this bizarre system of checks and balances to create order in my world. But it really backfired. It was about wanting to please my father and mother and wanting to be perfect to everybody. I just thought if I ever expressed [to my parents] any sadness or anger or anything that’s going on with me, they would disown me. I kept a lot of it bottled up inside, and it turned into self-destructive behavior.

On her insecurities:

Honestly, it’s an ongoing struggle. Especially for a woman on a show that has the word “pretty” in it! Sometimes I feel like I’m trying too hard, like I don’t belong. I just look around at [co-stars] Lucy [Hale], Shay [Mitchell], and Ashley [Benson], and I’m just like, “Why am I on this show?” Sometimes I’ve felt like a fraud. I’m not like these other girls – I don’t dress like that and I don’t know how to do my hair,’ she continues. ‘The minute I’m off that stage, I try to get as “me” as possible. I do that by piling on my black eyeliner, and I put on my ripped tights. Dressing like myself again helps.’

… says Troian.

On her image as ‘Posh’ Spice:

“I looked moody. But I wasn’t! I was shy, [and] not very sure of myself. I had to create a character and I thought of that: staring at people and pouting. My insecurities helped me invent the character in a way.”

On body image:

“I’m so jealous of people who completely love their bodies. I think most women have trouble areas as well as areas that they like. So you play up your favorite parts and learn to dress around the others. I used to hate my legs, but now I always wear minis. It was an accident. In an effort to look taller, I started wearing really high heels with shorter skirts and ended up showing off my legs a lot.”

… says Lauren in Comopolitan Magazine.
