Lucy Hale Wants To Help Domestic Abuse Survivors And Their Pets Find Refuge

Lucy Hale is a dog person. The actress and singer is often photographed walking her 4-year-old Maltipoo, Elvis, around town and on set. Her Instagram bio consists of only two words: Elvis’ mama. “I know it sounds ridiculous, but he’s my soulmate,” Hale tells Woman’s Day. “He’s my best friend; I truly don’t know what I would do without him.” And it’s the love Hale has for her fur-baby that propelled her to partner with Purina and get involved with the Purple Leash Project, an campaign that works to make domestic abuse shelters pet-friendly and more welcoming to pet owners in need of refuge.

Domestic abuse and intimate partner violence are major issues in the United States. On average, around 20 people are physically abused by an intimate partner per minute in the U.S., according to the National Coalition Against Domestic Violence. One in three women and one in four men have experienced some form of physical violence by an intimate partner. And on any given day, more than 20,000 phone calls are made to domestic violence hotlines nationwide. “I feel like a lot of people don’t realize these statistics,” Hale says. “We probably know many people in our lives that go through this.”

One factor in whether or not a victim of domestic abuse will leave the relationship is if they’re allowed to bring their pet with them. Only 10 percent of domestic abuse shelters across the nation accept pets, according to the Purple Leash Project, and 48 percent of people will stay in an abusive situation or household because of their pets. “That struck a chord with me because I’m obsessed with my dog, and I know that I couldn’t ever be separated from him,” Hale says.

Why Lucy Hale Says Getting An IUD Was One Of The Most “Empowering” Choices She Ever Made

Good-girl roles have been a staple throughout Lucy Hale’s career, from Aria Montgomery on Pretty Little Liars to the titular character on the CW’s Katy Keene. In reality, though, the 31-year-old actress isn’t like the doe-eyed young women she often plays onscreen (although her eyes are startlingly large, even when seen via pixelated box on a Zoom call). As a self-proclaimed “open book”, Hale is more outspoken than her characters, happy to talk about taboo topics like white privilege, sex, and birth control. The star is clearly confident about making decisions that impact her future, and as she tells HelloGiggles, she wants to help other women feel empowered to do the same—especially when it comes to contraception.

“A lot of women go through their lives wanting to make choices about birth control, but they just don’t know where to begin,” Hale, who recently partnered with pharmaceutical company Bayer, says over a Zoom call in August. “I gladly take on the role of getting this conversation started for them. Maybe seeing one of my Instagram posts or hearing me talk about this will encourage them to make really amazing, positive decisions for themselves.”

Lucy Hale: A Day In My Life

Lucy Hale is always on the go.

After beginning her day with a cup of coffee and a journaling session, “[my dog], Elvis, and I usually go for a hike,” the actress, 31, says exclusively in the new issue of Us Weekly. “Being outside and in nature is one of my favorite things about living in Los Angeles.”

But hitting the trails isn’t the only active thing she does in a day. The Pretty Little Liars alum also hits her Peloton treadmill, which “I love,” she admits. “It came in handy during quarantine.”

According to the A Nice Girl Like You star, staying in shape is something that’s always been important to her.

“I’m one of the weirdos in the world that genuinely likes working out, not from a physical perspective, more from a mental aspect,” the songstress told Harper’s Bazaar Australia in 2018. “It’s a daily part of what I do.”

A large chunk of Hale’s day is dedicated to working too. That means doing press interviews via Zoom, which she says isn’t so bad. “Press from home means you only need to dress up from the waist up,” Hale jokes.

And things are only getting busier for the Tennessee native. Just weeks after her latest show, Katy Keene, was canceled after one season, it was announced that she’ll be starring in and serving as an executive producer for Jesse Harris’ survival thriller, Borrego.

“I knew from the second I read Borrego that I needed to be a part of [Harris’] tale of survival,” Hale shared to Instagram upon the news reveal, before adding that she was “so excited” to start filming.

Lucy Hale Reveals What She’ll Miss About Katy Keene – And Her Idea For A Series Revival

Katy Keene star Lucy Hale has revealed what she’ll miss most about starring in the short-lived Riverdale spin-off.

The new series lands on BBC iPlayer this weekend, following the story of would-be fashion designer Katy Keene (Hale) as she tries to make a name for herself in New York City.

The show recently finished airing in the United States, where its original broadcaster The CW announced it had been cancelled after a single season.

At a Q&A event about Katy Keene’s iPlayer debut, Hale explained to RadioTimes.com and other press why the role meant so much to her.

Lucy Hale’s Description of Her Mortifying ’50 Shades’ Audition Is So Awk

In case you’re wondering just how awkward the audition process was for 50 Shades of Gray, apparently the answer is very. Like…verrrrrrrrry. Turns out Pretty Little Liars actress Lucy Hale auditioned for the part of Anastasia Steele and recently described it as truly mortifying.

“I was very young,” she told The Associated Press. “It had to have been, not 10 years ago, it was a while ago, and I was, like, mortified.” She went on to explain that while the audition wasn’t “actual scenes from the movie,” she did have to read a “very sexually forward monologue.”

“I didn’t really even know what I was saying in the audition, like I didn’t understand” she said. “I was a little naive about it all … It was good for me because it scared the crap out of me to do an audition like that.”
