She is young, successful and beautiful. But in the last two years she gained 30 kilos and had to take harsh criticism for it. She won’t let it sit on her – and tells us what is behind her weight gain.
We know her from the US hit series “Pretty Little Liars”. As Alison DiLaurentis, Sasha Pieterse (21) kept her co-stars busy for seven seasons in the series. She can currently be seen on “Dancing With the Stars”. With so much screen presence and her many fans, weight fluctuations do not go unnoticed. Last year in particular, there were some headlines about how much the 21-year-old would have put on.
Her constant weight fight made her filthy rich!
The singer caused a sensation for years with her yo-yo weight. But while it rained malice and ridicule from the public, it earned itself a golden nose.
She had to endure a lot of ugly comments
According to US media reports, she spoke openly about her weight on the dance show: “I’ve gained around 30 kilos over the last two years.”
Sasha Pieterse at the beginning of 2017. The actress is rightly not ashamed of her pounds, feels good in her body and posts many revealing pictures of herself on Instagram.
Unfortunately, especially on the Internet, under the protection of anonymity, haters and trolls are on the scene: “It was very, very hurtful how people reacted,” recalls the pretty actress. She was constantly asked if she was pregnant, others just described her as fat.
As early as the summer, she defended herself against the outrageous comments of some of her followers and wrote on her Instagram profile: “Being in this industry means that every change in you will be noticed immediately. I was abused on social networks as soon as I put on a little weight. Users insulted me, made fun of me, and people kept asking me if I was pregnant. ”In“ Dancing With the Stars ”she reveals that she got the impression that her fans were upset that she suddenly looked like this : “It was one of the toughest things I have ever had to go through,” says Pieterse.

At first she wouldn’t have known why she was suddenly gaining weight, nor did she know what to do about it. A diagnosis only recently brought clarity, as the actress explains: Pieterse suffers from polycystic ovary syndrome, a hormonal disorder. It is one of the most common metabolic diseases in women.
