Lucy Hale Talks Overcoming Eating Disorder and Staying Positive With Seventeen

Posted on May 24, 2013

Pretty Little Liars star Lucy Hale covers the June/July 2013 issue of Seventeen. In the interview, Lucy talks about recovering from an eating disorder and staying positive. She also revealed she has an album coming out.

On Recovering From an 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 Staying Positive: "I've weeded out the negative people and now only surround myself with people who uplift me...I know what I have to offer and I feel good about it...I never understood jealousy. I'm a girls' girl. I want to be happy for you and root for you."

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."
