Ashley Benson and Vanessa Hudgens once “cried their eyes out” when they were stranded in Florida.
Both actresses starred in the 2012 movie Spring Breakers, in which they played college students who got caught up in parting and drug taking.
When asked what the most intense thing that’s ever happened to her is, Ashley recalled an event with Vanessa shortly after they’d finished filming the feature.
“This is not intense but I was with Vanessa Hudgens at the airport, on the way back to LA from wrapping Spring Breakers. We lost track of time getting dinner ’cause we were so tired, so we missed our flight. After spending two months in Florida, we just wanted to go home. We cried our eyes out on the floor and then picked ourselves up and had some drinks,” Ashley mused to the latest issue of Complex magazine. “Yeah, we went to the bar, and then we wandered around the airport ’til like three in the morning.”
Ashley is best known for her role as Hanna Marin in hit TV show Pretty Little Liars. Despite having global success with the programme, she still can’t get her head around the attention surrounding her.
“I don’t get people asking me if I’m famous. But now that Pretty Little Liars has been on for five years, people do notice me more,” she admitted. “I like meeting different people, which is not a problem. But it’s super weird. If somebody asks me to take a picture, I want to run and hide. I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it.”
There have also been awkward incidents with fans, one of which happened when Ashley was left with nothing to cover her modesty.
“There was one girl when I was in a Korean spa with my friend. I was taking a shower, and there are no doors in the shower. Normally I’m, like, ‘Whatever, we’re all girls here.’ So I’m completely naked, taking this shower, and my friend’s in the one next to me.
“All of sudden someone taps me on the shoulder,” she explained. “It was this girl who was like, ‘Hi, sorry to bother you, are you Ashley Benson?’ And I was like, ‘Are you serious right now? I’m naked.’ She was like, ‘Yeah, can I actually take a photo with you?’”
