Nylon magazine really has a way of giving the public what it wants. Recently, Lea Michele graced its pages, while dishing on real-life boyfriend Cory Monteith; then the Perks of Being a Wallflower cast took over in a stunning photo shoot; today, the glossy publication revealed its latest cover girl: Lucy Hale. And if you think the interview is all about Pretty Little Liars, you’re way off, pal. Read on for the scoop…
Lucy admits that when she originally moved to Hollywood, she wasn’t surrounded by close companions like her PLL character, Aria: “I didn’t have a friend for, like, two years[…] I’ve come out of my shell, but I was pretty shy. Some people take it as me being standoffish.”
But while we’re on the subject, what did she say about her hit show? “[When I first read the script,] I was like ‘Are you guys sure this is ABC Family? There’s a lot of risque stuff happening.'”
As for her dream ‘A,’ she says, “I want it to be a Bonnie and Clyde thing. Where Aria and Ezra are in it together. Or Spencer and Toby. But something romantic, [where] you root for them [even though] they’re the bad guys.”
OK, enough of the PLL talk. What’s going on with her upcoming album?! “It’s absolutely terrifying. You only get one album. You only get one single. You get one shot in music. But I have a million different dreams. Why can’t I go out and try to achieve them all? Who are you to say I can’t?”
And she’s not stopping at just TV & music: “I’m searching for something eye-opening. I love movies like (500) Days of Summer and Juno. Something offbeat without the glamour and the makeup and the clothing.”
