Imagine a scenario where you’re on vacation in Hawaii, lounging on the beach. It sounds pretty great, until you realize there’s someone hiding in the bushes taking pictures of you in a bikini. That’s enough to rattle your nerves, isn’t it? Not if you’re “Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale.
The 24-year-old actress talks to Self magazine about feeling comfortable in her own skin, when she reveals she was in that exact scenario, with paparazzi taking pictures of her. “I don’t think anybody wants to be photographed in their bikini unless you’re like a Victoria’s Secret model,” she says. “There’s always a little voice in my head that says, ‘Suck it in a little more.'”
However, at the end of the day she doesn’t let it bother her, as Hale explains, “I’m so comfortable with who I am, I’m just like, ‘Screw it! Take pictures!'” It certainly doesn’t hurt that she’s in great shape. There’s still something she would like to change, though. “I always wish I was a little bit taller,” Lucy says. “Maybe 2 inches to make it to 5 foot 4. I’ll take whatever I can get.” Even without those two inches, she seems to be doing alright.
