Pretty Little Liars is a show based on a big ol' pile of lies, and churns out deceit and bullshit at every turn to throw viewers off the big reveal of who the hoot A really is. But, despite the lie-heavy plot, Hanna (AKA Ashley Benson) is NOT HERE for telling porkies in photos, and she has called out PLL for doing just that, for photoshopping the heck out of the cast.
"PLL had put up this poster and it was from our first season and it was completely crazy," she told Stylecaster. "Nobody looked like themselves."
Ashley didn’t stop there, extending the problem to beyond PLL to the whole media industry, saying that it happens almost every time a photo is taken:
To combat the issue, Ashley has said that unless she directly declares that a picture of her is unedited, everyone should assume that it has been fiddled with.
"I always make sure to tell people, with any sh*t that I do or anyone else does, that unless it’s announced that it’s not photoshopped, it’s photoshopped. And don’t get down on yourself for not looking a certain way because it takes a lot of hair and makeup, a ton of good lighting, and after the shoot, it’s all this editing."
