Days of our Lives' Ashley Benson (ex-Abigail Deveraux) reports crying for half an hour after being called “too fat” for a role she was vying for.

Actors face criticism and extreme scrutiny on a daily basis, but a recent experience proved to be too much for Days of our Lives alum Ashley Benson (ex-Abigail Deveraux), who has opened up about the hurt she felt following being called "too fat" for a role she had hoped to land.

The Pretty Little Liars actress opened up to Ocean Drive about the horrifying experience, sharing, "I was just told I was too fat for a part. I'm a size 2! I cried for 30 minutes, but then you have to let it roll off your shoulders or it could cause a serious eating disorder."

For fans who might be surprised that the seemingly perfect actress isn't so perfect in everyone's eyes, you may want to check out an Instagram post Benson made a couple of months ago. She shared a photo of herself wearing pimple cream "to show people I'm not perfect -- no one is."

It's the new trend. 😜
