Given the name of the show, it’s no secret that there are plenty of liars on Pretty Little Liars — but who is the biggest one? The stars of the show took that question on recently in a behind-the-scenes video, and while one name popped up most frequently, for the most part, the vote was split.
In this week’s “Ask a Liar” segment, stars Troian Bellisario (Spencer), Janel Parrish (Mona), Lucy Hale (Aria), Ashley Benson (Hanna), and Shay Mitchell (Emily) were all questioned about the degree of lying on the show, and their answers certainly surprised us.
“I don’t think you can say any one of them is the biggest liar — they’re all liars! They all lie all the time, and I don’t think one lies any more than the other,” Troian reasoned when asked who is the biggest liar. “They all want to tell the truth, but they never really end up doing it.”
Lucy disagreed — she actually thinks it’s Spence! “If we’re basing it on the last season, probably Spencer,” she noted. Janel was more definitive with her answer, saying, “I would say Aria,” and Ashley simply said her own character: “Hanna.” Ash wasn’t the only one thinking that, though! Shay first thought like Troian, but changed her answer last minute. “I think it’s all equal — all of the girls have kind of lied equally,” she said, then laughed, adding, “Maybe Hanna.”
The chat wasn’t all negative, though! The girls also spilled about which PLL character they’d most likely be friends with in real life.
“Probably Aria. She’s really laid-back, and I think we probably have the same kind of style and sensibility, likes and dislikes,” Troian said. Lucy went for Emily because “she’s the most neutral” out of all of them. Shay, on the other hand, went for Spencer because “she’s the smartest one,” and Janel agreed! Ashley was the oddball, first saying Emily, then adding, “Just kidding, Caleb!” with a laugh. Notably, she’s wearing portrayer Tyler Blackburn’s clothes while saying this, and he laughs in the background.
