In recent celebrity news, “Pretty Little Liars” star LUCY HALE has admitted that she used to “go days without eating” in an effort to stay super slim.

Whoa.

Lucy Hale is undoubtedly cute-some might even say she’s super hot. Still, that didn’t stop the 5-foot-2 beauty from feeling insecure about her body when she was younger.

So insecure, in fact, that sometimes she would starve herself.

Lucy tells Cosmopolitan:

“I’ve never really talked about this, but I would go days without eating… Or maybe I’d have some fruit and then go to the gym for three hours.”

She adds:

“I knew I had a problem… It was a gradual process but I changed myself.”

Lucy, who now enjoys a healthier relationship with food, also opens up about the first time she met her current boyfriend, “Amazing Spider-Man” star Chris Zylka.

She gushes:

“I was like, ‘Holy crap! You’re gorgeous! It was like no one else was there. We couldn’t stop talking.”
