“Pretty Little Liars” star Lucy Hale appears on the cover of the September issue of “Cosmopolitan” and opens up about something she says “she’s never really talked about.”

The magazine hits newsstands on Tuesday August 14 and the actress reveals some very serious personal issues from her past.

“I’ve never really talked about this, but I would go days without eating,” says Hale, “Or maybe I’d have some fruit and then go to the gym for three hours. I knew I had a problem…It was a gradual process but I changed myself.”

Luckily the young actress has overcome those issues with body image and looks fabulous on the cover of the magazine.

On her show “Pretty Little Liars” they actually tackle the issue of eating disorders but with the character Hanna Marin, played by Ashley Benson.

In the very personal interview, Hale opens up about meeting her boyfriend Chris Zylka for the first time.

“I was like, ‘Holy crap you’re gorgeous!’” she remembers telling her boyfriend, “It was like no one else was there. We couldn’t stop talking.”

Zylka is an actor, best known for his role on “The Secret Circle” and has just announced that he’s joining the cast of “American Horror Story.”

And yeah, when she said “holy crap you’re gorgeous” she means it. The actor was voted #90 on BuddyTV’s list of “TV’s Sexiest Men of 2011.”

She’s got a hot boyfriend, a positive outlook on life, and stars on one of the most popular shows on television. Is there anything she can’t do?

Well, she’s currently working on her debut music album. Yep, the actress was actually on the short-lived “Idols Jr.” show many years ago and has just signed a deal with Hollywood Records.

"I'm overjoyed and honored to become a member of the Hollywood Records family,“ said Lucy. “I've admired the careers they've made and can't wait to see how my musical path is paved out."
