Ashley Benson is one smokin’ hot little liar on the March 2014 cover of Cosmopolitan. The Pretty Little Liars star looks confident and sexy on the cover, wearing a baggy v-neck sweater over pink satin lingerie. In the immortal words of Beyoncé, Ashley is a grown woman!

Aside from her fun and flirty pics, the issue also features a captivating interview with the starlet, who opened up about her family’s harrowing history of addiction.

“There are drugs and alcohol in my family on both sides, so I’ve seen lives ruined, going to jail and all that,” she told Cosmo. “Once you start with any drug, it can be an addiction – that’s why I never want to start and am not even tempted, because that chain is relentless. And if it runs in your family, you see how unglamorous it is. I would never want to be out of control with my body.”

We’re so proud of Ashley for having such an incredible head on her shoulders. And no, we’re not just talking about her gorgeous locks. Although, we are in love with Ash’s darker ‘do. According to the 24-year-old, brown hair makes Ash feel more like herself. “As a blonde, I get categorized as the bitchy popular girl for roles, and I just want to be the normal girl,” she said.

Ashley also dished on dating her on-again-off-again beau Ryan Good, telling the mag, ““Ryan is one of the strongest people I’ve met, so grounded and such a positive influence on people.”

Check out Ashley’s full interview, and her stunning pics, when her issue of Cosmopolitan hits newsstands on February 4.
