Lucy Hale Opens Up About Eating Disorder, Music and Relationships in ‘Seventeen’ Magazine
How beautiful does Lucy Hale look on the cover of Seventeen magazine?
The “Pretty Little Liars” star looks wonderful on the June/July 2013 cover and she’s opening up about everything from her relationships to music.
On her new album: “My album is something I’m really, really, really proud of. I’ve intentionally been quiet about it because I want the music to speak for itself. People are either going to love it or hate it. But I think that once they hear it, they’ll be like, ‘Okay, she loves this and is serious about it.’ This is my pride and joy—it’s my baby! I worked my butt off on it.”
On dating: “I was just telling [my best friend] the other day that I don’t know what it’s going to take for me to want to date someone again. It just seems so exhausting. When I like someone, I fall really hard and I invest everything. When it’s gone, I’m like ‘I’m never doing that again!’”
On recovering from her eating disorder: “I’m so unbelievably lucky that I’m not like that anymore because it is a horrible way of life and it’s miserable. It consumes everything you think about and you can’t pursue things you want to do…I used to spend so many wasted days being depressed and feeling gross….I learned you have to be happy. People who are the happiest are the most beautiful.”
On learning from her mistakes: “[The old Lucy] was confused. I would say things I wouldn’t normally say, or date people I knew I shouldn’t be dating, or go places I know I shouldn’t be at—just making bad decisions and mistakes. Not to say I still don’t make mistakes all the time, but I feel like I’m heading in the right direction.”
