Ashley Benson shows off her patriotic style on the April issue cover of Seventeen. The Pretty Little Liars star wears a bright red blazer, flag-inspired denim shorts and a white shirt with a lightning design.
She tweeted on Wednesday (March 6): “Thanks for making me look awesome on @seventeenmag mag cover @alexpolillo and @StoryOfMaiLife love you both”
On the parody video that poked fun of Selena Gomez and Justin Bieber: “I haven’t heard from Selena! People thought that I was being mean, but I was just doing what the girl did in the video. It wasn’t a jab at her. But I heard from Justin. He wasn’t happy. Justin is like my little brother since he and my ex are so close. Anytime you go through a breakup, the friends get defensive. But all is well in that area now.”
On filming the R-rated film Spring Breakers: “We all came from a Disney background, and this was different from anything we’ve done. But we wanted to prove that we’re not just girls who play happy parts. It was such a crazy experience and it was character-building.”
On her celebrity role models: “I love Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman — those are the careers I want. My goal is to win an Oscar, and I’m going to take the steps to get there.”
The Seventeen issue hits newsstands on March 12.
