Troian Bellisario doesn’t hate the new photos from the Pretty Little Liars feature in GQ mag — and neither do we.
But the 28-year-old actress has always been honest with her fans and she showed them just what she looked like before the photoshopping on Instagram with a great body image message. Check it:
“So by now you have seen many a shot from #GQ and many people have said that we were photoshopped… OF COURSE WE WERE! that’s a very specific type of photo shoot. And looking very blown out and perfected was obviously what they were looking for. Great. Cool. As long as we acknowledge how it was achieved so we know it’s not real. Here’s some behind the scenes of my body the way it is and was on the day. I’m not mad at how these pictures turned out, the girls and I had an absolute blast. More fun than we’ve had on a photoshoot in a while, and I think you can see that in our eyes and smiles. But it’s the same everywhere.
“It’s the same way on the posters of our show and even in women’s magazines. This industry seems to invest more in perfection than in flaw. But flaw and individuality, to me, are what make a human being interesting, they make our stories worth telling. (Unfortunately the flaws don’t usually sell products or magazines) I’m proud of my body and the way it looks because @themarkwildman kicks my butt in aerial. But my hips and thighs are a part of me (even though they magically weren’t in some shots!) I get those things from my momma. And I’m happy To shake what my momma gave me.”
She added afterwards, “I mean. Photoshopped or not. I work with three of the most gorgeous women on the planet. (Goddesses without hair and make up as well) @shaym @itsashbenzo @lucyhale #gq.”
The cast of Pretty Little Liars plays a bit of tug of war in this new shot from their feature in the June 2014 issue of GQ.
Stars Lucy Hale, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson and Shay Mitchell got together for a fun filled shoot by the gym pool and dreamed about their absolute dream roles.
“I’d want to do a Woody Allen film, in all honesty,” Ashley, 24, shared.
Recently engaged Troian, 28, says, “Shakespeare In The Park. Maybe play Lady Macbeth.”
Shay, 27, is on the same wavelength, “An action movie I could star in and do all the stunts. Like scaling a building and then it blowing up…”
It seems Lucy is the odd-woman out, but considering she’s about to release an album, it’s all good: “I want to go on tour!”

SPOILER-Y PICS AHEAD!
Sasha Pieterse and Ian Harding chat on the steps in a theatre in this new still from the season five premiere of Pretty Little Liars.
“EscApe From New York” picks up moments after where the season four finale left off, Aria (Lucy Hale) and the Liars are reeling from Ezra’s (Harding) shooting at the hands of “A.”
The five girls quickly realize that as the one person who truly knows A’s identity, Ezra is in grave danger. While Aria stands watch over Ezra at the hospital, Alison (Pieterse) and the PLLs lay a trap to finally flush out “A” but are shocked by who is ensnared.
Meanwhile, Holbrook steps up his efforts to find the girls and puts the Hastings family on alert. And as news of Alison’s resurrection spreads, Mona (Janel Parrish) is not pleased.
