Troian Bellisario covers the February 2014 issue of Seventeen

Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario covers the February 2014 issue of Seventeen magazine. In the interview, Troian talks about how she differs from Spencer Hastings, her character on Pretty Little Liars. She also talks about self-harming and going with food as a teenager in high school.

On Fans Telling Her She's Perfect: "I've heard fans say that I'm perfect on the show and I want to tell them I've been through two hours of hair and makeup. Don't hold yourself up to that!"

On Self-Harming and Going Without Food: "I started self-harming when I was a junior. I would withhold food or withhold going out with my friends, based on how well I did that day in school...I didn't know what was right and what was wrong, so I think I created this bizarre system of checks and balances to create order in my world. But it really backfired."

On How She Differs From Spencer Hastings: "Sometimes I feel like I'm trying too hard, like I donít belong. I just look around at Lucy [Hale], Shay [Mitchell], and Ashley [Benson], and I'm just like, Why am I on this show? Sometimes I've felt like a fraud. Like, I'm not like these other girls - I don't dress like that and don't know how to do my hair. The minute I'm off that stage, I try to get as 'me' as possible. I do that by piling on my black eyeliner, and I put on my ripped tights. Dressing like myself again helps."
