“Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale looks better than ever, particularly when she’s snapped in candid photos with her super-hot boyfriend, Chris Zylka — also known as “The Amazing Spider-Man’s” Flash. Now, though, she admits that she wasn’t always as healthy as she is today.
In the interview accompanying her Cosmopolitan magazine cover, Hale admits to suffering from an eating disorder and battling poor body image. “I’ve never really talked about this, but I would go days without eating,” she says. “Or maybe I’d have some fruit and then go to the gym for three hours. I knew I had a problem.”
She reveals that she worked hard to get better and adjust her habits. “It was a gradual process but I changed myself.”
As for Zylka, Lucy says it was love at first sight. “I was like, ‘Holy crap you’re gorgeous!'” she says. “It was like no one else was there. We couldn’t stop talking.”
