That said, the funnest takeaway from Shay’s interview is the part where she enumerates her less-healthy habits: “I can’t say no to pizza! I’ll 100 percent eat a whole pie by myself,” she admitted. “If I do, I just move on. No guilt.”
Which, among other things, makes Shay most definitely our kind of girl. And despite the “Pretty Little Liars” drama and cattiness that makes for such great television, the actress says that off-screen, she and her fellow liars are actually the best of friends—which, according to Shay, is exactly the way it should be.
“Women should never compete with each other,” she said. “We need to take away the jealousy, ego and all that. My costars and I are really close—it’s a nice sisterhood.”
