As one of Hollywood’s It girls, Ashley Benson is a force to be reckoned with. The stunning actress made her mark playing the sassy and stylish Hanna Marin on Freeform’s Pretty Little Liars and continues to make waves to this day. Not only did she, along with Lucy Hale, serve as one of Bongo’s campaign models — and not only did she rock her way through Hot Chelle Rae’s music video for “Honestly” — but she also showed off her versatile acting chops in Spring Breakers, alongside Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez, and even scored a coveted guest starring role on How I Met Your Mother.

Additionally, as though we couldn’t possibly adore her any more, Ashley spends Christmas break visiting her grandma (so cute), makes herself accessible to her fans through Facebook and twitter (@ashbenzo), and volunteers for Kids with a Cause.

So on this very special day — December 18th — we are kicking the festivities up a notch and celebrating her birthday with glam photos and fun facts. Join the fun below!

    Aww! Being talented, gorgeous and hard-working comes with a small price. Ashley never had the time to attend a school prom or holiday dance. Luckily, Rosewood hosts a lot of fancy events so Ashley is able to live her high school dreams during Pretty Little Liars scenes!
