The Pretty Little Liars star rocks a svelte figure, which she showed off in a number of bikinis in 2012 movie Spring Breakers, but despite her enviable physique, Hollywood bigwigs claimed she was too curvy.

"I was just told I was too fat for a part," she admits to Ocean Drive magazine. "I'm a (U.S.) size 2 (U.K. 6)! I cried for 30 minutes, but then you have to let it roll off your shoulders or it could cause a serious eating disorder. A lot of people in this industry hear they need to lose weight more times than they should."

Luckily, Ashley, 26, made sure to take something positive from the critical comment.

"It does make you stronger, though," she continues, "because if you let that affect you, you can't be in this industry - you'd go crazy."
