Aly Michalka: Cheerleading is Bad-Ass

Aly Michalka: Cheerleading is Bad-Ass

There are just TWO DAYS until Aly Michalka‘s new series, Hellcats premieres on the CW.

The 21-year-old actress sat down with the Toronto Sun recently about taking on the project, her toned tummy and how she feels about the sport now. Check it:

On being hesitant to look at the script: “I didn’t really know what the (writers had in mind), so I was like, ‘I don’t know, cheerleading, hmmm?’ But I read the script and fell in love with it. Then when I actually filmed it, my respect level (for cheerleading) went up 1,000%. Cheerleading is bad-ass. These people are athletic. These people are trustworthy because they are there to catch you when you’re up in the air, flying.”

On cheerleading being in her blood: “I have no cheerleading background, but my mom happened to be a Raiderette that went to the Super Bowl, and they won, which is rad, and a Rams cheerleader and a UCLA cheerleader. So that’s kind of a cool thing. I’ve never had an interest to be on a squad, probably because there’s no home-schooling cheerleading squads. That might be weird, a home-schooling cheerleading squad. Very small.”

On her amazing abs: “Yeah, but nobody really knew, which is kind of funny. I guess I wouldn’t be walking around with a crop-top all the time.”

Stay tuned for our exclusive video with Aly on “What It Takes To Be A Hellcat!”

    I hope the show is a hit for her and Ashley.

  • Listen to mayday parade

    The show will be a success because they are pimping it huge. Plus Disney is so huge right now, hens why they hired aly and ash in the first place. But Ashley is hot and fierce and I’m stoked to see her in this. As for abs on chicks, gross. Flat tummies yes, abs no. It’s like muscular arms on women, nasty. Be toned but not man like. It’s just my opinion, I find Madonna nasty and she has both.
