We’re huge AshBenzo fans here at Wetpaint Entertainment and we’ve decided to celebrate her 22nd birthday today (December 18) by talking about some of the reasons we love her. We tried to limit this down to 23 but we could have easily gone on until 200.
Here are the top reasons we love Ashley.
23. She’s a great dancer. Ashley got her start dancing and danced competitively at a young age. 22. She’s a great mommy to her pup, Olive. 21. She’s a seasoned soap star. Ashley hit her first big break on Days of our Lives. 20. She’s an avid Twitter user. Follow her at @AshBenzo. 19. Her personal website is awesome. It’s clear that Ashley really loves to interact with her fans. 18. She’s besties with her on-screen bestie, Shay Mitchell (Emily Fields). 17. She’s a Belieber. Her boyfriend, Ryan Good, is Justin Bieber’s infamous “swagger coach.” 16. Her hair is always perfectly tousled. (Yes, that’s shallow, but we are really jealous.) 15. She’s funny. Could you imagine anyone else delivering Hanna’s one-liners? 14. She gets to make out with Tyler Blackburn on-screen. Okay, maybe that’s a reason we should dislike her. 13. She’s a cover girl. Remember when she covered Seventeen magazine earlier this year? She looked great! 12. She’s stylish. 11. She gives us some good spoilers for Pretty Little Liars, but is careful to never reveal too much. 10. She has pretty much mastered the art of the smoky eye. 9. She’s a California girl: Ashley was born and raised in Anaheim Hills, CA. 8. She’s charitable. Ashley and the rest of the PLL girls have supported non-profits and charities through DoSomething.org. 7. She’s got enough confidence to rock a prom dress after prom-age. 6. She works hard! Ashley has been working since she was 10! 5. She’s the fiercest Queen Bee to ever rule Rosewood. 4. You never see her rolling out of cheesy Hollywood clubs and doing something embarrassing. 3. Her sister, Shaylene Benson, is a Laker girl! 2. She finds a way to make that lumpy pre-”A” fat suit on PLL look awesome. 1. She plays one of our favorite character on TV, Hanna!
