Ashley Benson splits from Ryan Good, talks breakup in Seventeen interview
First "Spring Breakers," now spring breakups? Actress Ashley Benson of "Pretty Little Liars" fame has revealed that she and Ryan Good, the friend and "swagger coach" of Justin Bieber have split.
"I've always been in relationships," Benson told Seventeen in an interview published in the magazine's April 2013 issue. "And I knew I needed to learn to be comfortable alone."
They are believed to have begun dating around September 2011, when they began flirtatiously Tweeting each other, according to Teen.com.
Benson, who was rumored to be in a relationship with "Spring Breakers" co-star James Franco, maintains that she would prefer to stay single as she focuses on her career.
"Anytime you go through a breakup, it's rough," the 23-year-old actress said. "Ryan and I are still close, but I'm too young to be in a serious relationship. Work is my boyfriend!"
The "Liars" star cited Michelle Williams and Natalie Portman as her role models, and claimed that her long-term goal is "to win an Oscar, and I'm going to take the steps to get there."
"Spring Breakers," which co-stars Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez as lawbreaking college girls, has garnered mostly favorable reviews on RottenTomatoes.com. It was released in theaters last weekend.
