You know her best as the princess of fashion and sass on Pretty Little Liars but, during How I Met Your Mother Season 8 episode titled “Ring Up,” Ashley Benson proved that she can inspire just as many laughs as she can screams.
The PLL and Spring Breakers actress guest-starred on the popular CBS sitcom’s January 21st episode, in which she plays Ted Mosby’s (Josh Radnor) barely legal girlfriend, Carly Whittaker. Ted’s smitten with his new honey (um, obviously — she’s a blonde bombshell) but notices that they have very little in common. (At one point, when gushing about his sexy “old” age, she asks him, “Were you in Vietnam?”) Meanwhile, his BFF Barney (Neil Patrick Harris), who is officially off the market, does his best to dissuade Ted from breaking up his much younger, much wilder boo. (However, after — SPOILER ALERT! — he finds out that Carly is actually his sister, he tries to change Ted’s mind.)
We always knew Ash had comedic chops but we didn’t know that she was downright hilarious — and she proved so in her portrayal of a happy-go-lucky character with daddy issues and an uninhibited sense of style. (One of her outfits consisted of a patterned ski hat, shorts, suspenders, and lace tights. LOL!)
