We all think about it.
T: As somebody in the media, how do you fight that stigma? LH: It's hard to pinpoint when, as people, we stop talking about our sex lives openly. So for me, it was just freeing as an actor to get to talk about certain things that I don't feel are talked about enough. Because if that were a man talking about it like that, it wouldn't be given the time of day. I don't buy into it because if you buy into it, it kind of feeds your life. In her new film"A Nice Girl Like You," her character, also named Lucy, creates a to-do list to try and combat her own prohibitive nature when it comes to sex and relationships.
If there are rumors out there about me that are not true I really find it strange that we care who people are dating.
But the reason I wanted to do the movie gurl because you don't really see female characters doing things like this. So I'm very active on my social media and interacting with my fans.
Our sexuality and our sexual lives and our personal lives, that makes us so much of who we are. But I think because maybe I have a cleaner image and I'm talking about my sexuality, maybe it's the contrast of those two things that makes it interesting to people.
From "Pretty Little Liars " to the recently canceled "Katy Keene," she's played characters who are fierce, smart and not afraid to defy gender norms. We should just own it and let it empower us.

And so that was another reason why I wanted to do that because I was like, no, this is definitely going to push me out of my own comfort zone, too, because I can be sometimes on the timid side about those things.
I don't think Gir, as sheltered as she is and I definitely wouldn't go and make a sex list like this. During the trial she said she feared becoming McCann's "sex slave". I'm just not that person anymore. The girl told the BBC she now lives in a "constant fear of everything" and is "confused" as to why the year-old was not recalled to prison.

LH: I realized because the first time I read the script, I was a little uncomfortable reading it too because it is, you know, there are some very forward ideas and messages. The year-old and her younger brother were both attacked after McCann tied up their mother in their home in May. It's hard to say why people are almost embarrassed about it because we all do it.
I always found that it was the women they wanted to tone down, whereas they were sexualizing the men more often, which I thought was really interesting.
Usually it's men in movies and I thought there was a lot of really cool, sex-positive ideas within the script for a female character. I'll post pictures of my dog and my nieces and stuff, but as far as dating life, I'll never, ever talk about that again in public And throughout the movie, she discovers who she is through her sexuality.

We're in a time where we need to embrace these things about ourselves and sort of take back the power that's been repressed for a long time. That just goes to show that women being sexual or talking about sexuality, especially in a movie, it's still so taboo and controversial and we still have a ways to go.
And it can be a little aggressive for some people, but I've always found that silly. In film there's way more liberty to do those things.
But that being said, I Womeb love being involved with the people who support me. It comes after a report said probation staff were warned he posed a risk of sexual offending. And she hits her rock bottom and goes through a really bad breakup and she realizes that she needs to go through this path of self-discovery to figure out the kind of person she wants to be and the kind of person tirl wants to be in a relationship. It's so funny. And so I actually got to cross some of those things off my own list.
I don't say anything.
It's how we interact with people, the decisions we make. LH: It's cool that I can kickstart different conversations that some people might be a little too hesitant to talk about. There's a lot of other things we could be focusing on. I would say that women are supposed to be quiet about certain things and polite about certain nad and that it can be perceived as brash to talk about your sex lives.
So she ends up making this really wild sex to-do list, and she plans on checking each of these things off of her list. The report disclosed that inwhen McCann was in prison for burglary, police wex information dating to and suggested he "might pose a risk of sexual harm and exploitation to teenage girls". Trending Lucy Hale on 'A Nice Girl Like You' and telling sex-positive stories in The year-old actress talks about dating rumors, how female sexuality informs her work and auditioning for "Fifty Shades of Grey.
LH: I mean, all the time. And that's eex who I am or what I'm about anymore. I love what I do and I love the art of what I do and I love creating things with people, but the whole celebrity thing is just weird and creepy to me. For me, that's just getting the conversation started.
