One of the more realistic sides to the wildly unrealistic Family Channel show, "Pretty Little Liars," is the honest delivery of some truly hokey lines from the completely lovely Troian Bellisario
, who is currently hawking her cover model feature in Seventeen magazine. Bellisario opened up to the magazine as a part of wanting to share with her young fans that life is not as perfect for her as the show might make it seem (although that convoluted life is fairly effed the hell up). Troian explained that she has been dealing with an eating disorder for a number of her 28 years. She also encouraged young women at the Barnes & Noble signing event in New York City that they shouldn't get down on themselves if they fall short of achieving her look from the show, explaining that she spends hours in hair and makeup in order to look as good as she does on the show. I have to say, I really like this chick. While she's obviously got an "easier" life than most, she's got an edge to her that is lacking in so many other teen idol actresses.
