Shay Mitchell shows off her toned bod on the June 2013 cover of Self magazine.
The 26-year-old actress opened up to the glossy about her Pretty Little Liars co-stars, how she got into acting , and what she eats on a daily basis. Check it:
On living out her dreams: “When I was living in Toronto and going to my bottle service [waitress] job, I walked down the street as if I were the actor I wanted to be. Back then, my vision board had a Hollywood sign and palm trees on it. I knew this was going to happen. It’s important to wake up every day and remind yourself what you’re working toward.You create your own life. It’s not set out there for you.”
On her favorite foods: “I live thinking, If today’s my last day, what’s gonna make me happiest? And I do those things. I want to try different foods and enjoy myself, not starve myself to reach a number on the scale. My usuals: for breakfast, an egg-white omelet with spinach and mushrooms; for lunch, a salad with fish or chicken; and for dinner, veggie soup. Oh, and I love potato chips!”
On being BFFs with her PLL co-stars: “Women should never compete with each other. We need to take away the jealousy, ego and all that. My costars and I are really close — it’s a nice sisterhood. Anytime they see a script that reminds them of me, they’ll be like, ‘You should go out for this part.’ It’s always a total girl who kicks ass. My ultimate role would be a Bond girl. I love the action and the girl who does it in heels!”

Thanks to our pals at THR, we’ve got one and the new season picks right up where it left off — what is in that trunk?
“When we shot the scene there was nothing in the trunk,” Troian Bellisario told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show. “When I say we know nothing, we were looking at nothing in the trunk. I said to [creator Marlene King] … ‘I just have to know, I’m an actor. Tell me what’s in the trunk so I can imagine it.’ And she said, ‘It’s pretty close to your worst nightmare.’”
She continued, “But when we shot the scene, picking up with the season premiere where you see what’s in the trunk. She wasn’t far [off]. It’s pretty awful.”
