Nina Dobrev, Miley Cyrus, Ariana Grande and Ashley Benson — what do they all have in common (besides being famous and extremely gorgeous, obvi)? They’ve all been on the cover of Cosmo in the last six months. That’s right, THE women’s magazine totally gets us and the lovely ladies we look up to; most recently, the Pretty Little Liars star.

For the glossy publication’s March 2014 issue, the 24-year-old actress dishes on her hit ABC Family show; that’s pretty much a given in any interview. However, she also dishes on plenty of other juicy topics, including dating, nudity and drugs. Click through the gallery below for her most revealing tidbits, and make sure to visit or pick up the latest issue of Cosmo on newsstands February 4.

On steering clear of drugs:

"There are drugs and alcohol in my family on both sides, so I've seen lives ruined, going to jail and all that. Once you start with any drug, it can be an addiction — that's why I never want to start and am not even tempted, because that chain is relentless. And if it runs in your family, you see how unglamorous it is. I would never want to be out of control with my body."

On her double life as a prankster:

"Once, I stuck gum on Keegan Allen's coat collar, so when he leaned back, it got caught in his hair."

On posing as Scarlett Johansson:

"When I was 15, I was her stand-in for a Dolce & Gabbana campaign. I love her so much!" She even booked her hotel using a name from one of Johansson's films. "They wouldn't let me check in. It took forever to convince them it was really me."

On her on-again/off-again relationship with Ryan Good:

"Ryan is one of the strongest people I've met, so grounded and such a positive influence on people. We took a break because it was so hard. I work 20 hour days, so I'm always gone. So a lot of your relationship is on the phone and iChatting and trying to catch up."

Who has more funs, blondes or brunettes?

"Brunettes! Brown hair makes me feel more myself. As a blonde, I get categorized as the bitchy popular girl for roles, and I just want to be the normal girl."

On nudity, on-screen:

"I never want to do nudity that's gratuitous. Girls look so much better in lingerie or a T-shirt and leave the rest up to the imagination. I make it clear that I have a line. Everyone tries to push you, and it's easy to get talked into doing those things. I'll just walk off-set. But not everyone realizes they can do that."
