HUFFINGTONPOST.COM – These days, our knowledge of celebrities too often originates with paparazzi images and snarky quotes by anonymous “insiders.” After a while, it’s easy to forget that stars are real people. That’s why HuffPost Celebrity decided to launch its all-new #nofilter quick-fire question-and-answer series. Because how well do you know someone until they’ve shared their guiltiest pleasures?
Ashley Benson has been known as scene-stealer Hanna Marin on the ABC Family hit “Pretty Little Liars” for the past three years, and more recently ventured into edgier territory with Harmony Korine’s “Spring Breakers.”
While helping 7-Eleven kick off the season by taking the ceremonial first Slurpee sip of summer Wednesday, Benson, 23, chatted with HuffPost Celebrity about summer beauty secrets, devout “PLL” fans and why you can’t believe everything that you read.
Have you always been a Slurpee enthusiast?
Yeah, I’ve been having Slurpees since I was really young. My dad gets his coffee at 7-Eleven, so I’ve always been getting Slurpees. My friends like them as well, and they’re a good drink for the summer.
What’s your gulity pleasure?
What’s one item that’s always in your refrigerator?
Ice cream. You can always find bottles of water, almond milk and ice cream.
How do you stay in shape and keep up that “Spring Breakers” body?
I’m trying to get in shape at the moment, so I guess just having a trainer, trying to eat healthier, SoulCycle, maybe some yoga — even though I haven’t done it before, I’m going to try it.
What’s your summer beauty staple?
A great moisturizer. Chanel has this amazing luminiscent foundation that makes your skin really glowy — it’s really cool for summer. I love long skirts, Slurpees, the Slurpee Lite Sugar Free Sprite flavor. It’s only 20 calories, there’s no sugar — great for that bikini body. That’s a good summer must-have.
