With her new movie "Spring Breakers" set to hit theaters this month, Ashley Benson is continuing her promotional efforts by covering the April 2013 issue of Seventeen magazine.
The 23-year-old actress rocked an American inspired ensemble for the Matt Jones-shot front page while chatting about everything from her career dreams to finding a man for her friend Shay Mitchell.
"I love Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman—those are the careers I want. My goal is to win an Oscar, and I’m going to take the steps to get there," Ashley revealed.
In regards to her upcoming flick, the "Pretty Little Liars" cutie admits that she portrays some unexpected behavior. "Selena, Vanessa, and I all came from a Disney background, and [Spring Breakers] was different from anything we’ve done. But we wanted to prove that we’re not just girls who play happy parts. It was such a crazy experience—I’m so proud of all of us. I’m really excited for everybody to see it."
Meanwhile, when it comes to being a great friend Miss Benson knows what to do for her single gal pals. "One of my best friends is Shay Mitchell and she’ll be like, 'I want a boyfriend!' She’s been looking for three years…Every guy wants to date her, but she’s like, 'No. No. No. No.' I’m always on the lookout for Shay. Always. I’m always trying to get her a boyfriend!" she says.
