We’re so proud of our girl Shay Mitchell (Emily), who is the newest cover girl for Self Magazine! In the interview, she finds the time to talk about her Pretty Little Liars co-stars. What does she have to say about her fellow Little Liars?  

“Women should never compete with each other,” Shay told Self. “We need to take away the jealousy, ego and all that. My co-stars and I are really close — it’s a nice sisterhood. Anytime they see a script that reminds them of me, they’ll be like, ‘You should go out for this part.’ It’s always a total girl who kicks ass. My ultimate role would be a Bond girl. I love the action and the girl who does it in heels!”

Aw. Whenever the Liars talk friendship off-set our hearts warm a little. As much as we love the rock solid on-screen bond these girls share, it’s nice to know that they’re just as supportive off-camera. What else did we expect from girls who say things like this in their covergirl features: “Being beautiful doesn’t mean being skinny. It’s about being healthy.” Wise words, Shay!

What do you think of Shay’s advice? Let us know in the comments below!
