Ashley Benson and boyfriend Ryan Good brunched at Toast in West Hollywood on Tuesday, and the duo were a bit camera shy -- well, Ryan was, anyway! Maybe he was concerned photographers were going to hound him with questions about pal Justin Bieber's recent legal troubles?
The couple first got together in 2012, and though they split in March of 2013, they decided to give their romance another shot last October. Looks like that's working out pretty well! In the latest issue of Cosmopolitan, Ash opens up about their brief break and said, "Ryan is one of the strongest people I’ve met, so grounded and such a positive influence on people. We took a break because it was so hard. I work 20 hour days, so I’m always gone. So a lot of your relationship is on the phone and iChatting and trying to catch up."
In other news, Ash must have received some flack for tweeting "Don’t do drugs……" right after the news broke that Philip Seymour Hoffman had died, because she's since removed the message. Ash was very candid in her Cosmo interview about substance abuse problems with her family, so perhaps that's where her comment came from? The 24-year-old actress told the mag, “There are drugs and alcohol in my family on both sides, so I’ve seen lives ruined, going to jail and all that. Once you start with any drug, it can be an addiction – that’s why I never want to start and am not even tempted, because that chain is relentless. And if it runs in your family, you see how unglamorous it is. I would never want to be out of control with my body.”
