Troian Bellisario Posts an Instagram About Changing the World: 'We Have a Long Way to Go'

Many celebrities have been taking to their various platforms to speak out against the hatred and violence in Charlottesville this past weekend — and Troian Bellisario is among them.

Today, the 31-year-old Feed actress and director took to Instagram today to make a powerful point.

Troian posted an Instagram of words printed on the Williamsburg bridge, which read: “2017 GOALS: 1. END RACISM 2. END SEXISM 3. END NATIONALISM.”

Considering the horrific events of this past weekend, they seem like lofty goals — but goals are important.

“We have a long way to go, but we need goals,” Troian writes, “Happy Monday.”

We certainly do.

We have a long way to go, but we need goals. Happy Monday.

Troian Bellisario Was 'Blown Away' By Lily Collins in 'To The Bone'

Troian Bellisario Was 'Blown Away' By Lily Collins in 'To The Bone'

Troian Bellisario and Lily Collins have much more in common than just starring in films about eating disorders — they actually both had eating disorders in their youth and know exactly what it’s like to live with an illness like that.

In a recent Tumblr Post-It Forward Q&A, Troian opened up about watching Lily in To The Bone and how it compares to her own movie, Feed.

“I watched To the Bone and was blown away by Lily Collins‘ work, and Marti Noxon‘s direction and writing,” she shared, and also admitted that she was triggered by it.

“I also don’t think you can watch something for 2 hours that you have such a close relationship with and intense past with and not be triggered,” she explains.

Troian goes on to say that both of the films are bringing awareness to mental illness and eating disorders, and that’s exactly the point — to start a conversation.

“I think [the films] are doing a service because they are creating a space for people to talk about their struggles,” she says. “A space to share how they feel, how they pulled themselves out of a dark space, how they finally found their way to treatment, and also what helps when they feel triggered or feel like engaging with it again.”

Troian adds, “So that those people who are fighting with their ED’s can see a way out, perhaps they can get inspired to seek help.”

Troian Bellisario Didn't Connect As Much With Spencer at the End of 'Pretty Little Liars'

Troian Bellisario Didn't Connect As Much With Spencer at the End of 'Pretty Little Liars'

If you look back on the countless interviews for Pretty Little Liars, you’ll find pretty much everyone saying that as soon as Troian Bellisario walked into auditions for the series, she WAS Spencer Hastings.

The actress, and her co-stars, admitted that she definitely connected with Spencer during the early days of the series — but not as much at the end, it looks like.

“I would say that in the beginning Spencer and I had a few major things in common, but not a lot more than that,” Troian shared in Tumblr’s Post It Forward Q&A last week.

She adds, “Over the years and over time, my experiences affected her and playing her affected me.”

While both Spencer and she have grown together, and apart, Troian also shared that she really hasn’t looked back on the role just yet — seeing as the series just ended.

“I probably won’t know entirely how for many years. It’s still a pretty recent experience in my life.”

Troian Bellisario Reveals How Her Family Intervened & Helped Her Overcome Her Eating Disorder

Troian Bellisario Reveals How Her Family Intervened & Helped Her Overcome Her Eating Disorder

Much like Lily Collins, Troian Bellisario didn’t have an “a ha” moment about getting help with her eating disorder either.

The Feed actress hosted a Tumblr Answer Time with fans and when asked about the moment she knew she needed to do something, she got real honest about it.

“I actually did not have a moment of clarity like that,” she shared about if there was a moment that she reached out for help. “I was confronted by my friends, family and teachers. When they confronted me they took me to a doctor who told me about anorexia for the first time and that I was anorexic.”

Troian continues, “I really had not even thought of it, I knew I was losing weight I knew I was hiding and obsessing in an unhealthy way, but really that was the first time me or my family had an honest conversation about what was going on.

“But even after that it was a difficult path to climb, I would get “better” for a bit then fall back into it, I would take treatment seriously then not, tell the truth then lie.”

Troian Bellisario's Tribute to On-Screen Love Interest Keegan Allen Will Make You Feel Things

Troian Bellisario's Tribute to On-Screen Love Interest Keegan Allen Will Make You Feel Things

Spencer and Toby are endgame, as every Pretty Little Liars super fan knows (even if the show didn’t give it to us)– and actors Troian Bellisario and Keegan Allen are in full agreement.

Troian penned a heartfelt tribute to her on-screen love interest on Sunday (July 23) in honor of his birthday, and in the process opened up about how much it meant to her to work alongside Keegan for so many years.

“Actors don’t often get to choose who they work with,” she wrote, “Someone can be cast as your love interest for 7 years that you really have nothing in common with (or worse do not get along with). Someone who doesn’t make you laugh til you cry or endures your bad moods or asks you how they can help you get through your worst days. So when Spencer got together with Toby, I felt like I won a lottery of friendships.”

Troian then took the opportunity to gush about Keegan, showing just how deep their friendship goes.

“@keeoone Is a unicorn of a guy (yeah yeah he is insanely talented in a lot of ways, but I mean heart wise, in kindness) I couldn’t wish him more happiness and success in life and on his birthday. Keegs, thank you for being the Oby to my Sp. I’d play you in scrabble any day. Happy Birthday dork. #spobyisendgame.”

We love that they play Scrabble together. Happy belated, Keegan!
