Lucy Hale is famous on television for being a pretty little liar, but she's definitely making with the honesty in her role as a Seventeen magazine it girl. Lucy sports a stripey dress on the cover of the June/July issue, where she opened up to her interviewer about overcoming an eating disorder, getting through a bad breakup and changing things up career-wise with a new country musical endeavor.
According to Lucy, she couldn't have done anything without first getting back a healthy relationship with her body. Like many actresses, she found that the pressure to be thin was overwhelming and admitted that up until recently she was starving herself to stay slim. Now, though, she's healthy and happy—and relieved to have her energy back.
"I’m so unbelievably lucky that I’m not like that anymore," she told Seventeen, "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."

Taylor Momsen and Blake Lively aren't the only former "Gossip Girl" cast members with musical aspirations.
