‘The Perfectionists’ Stars Open Up About The False Perfection of Social Media

The stars of The Perfectionists look amazing in this shot from PopSugar‘s first cover story.

Sofia Carson, Eli Brown, and Sydney Park joins original Pretty Little Liars stars Sasha Pieterse and Janel Parrish for the feature where they open up about the pressures of keeping up appearances and achieving false perfection online.

“Social media is a beautiful responsibility that we have as actors,” Sofia shared. “It’s almost like a superpower to be able to connect with so many people at once, and to have such an impact. I think it’s incredibly important to take it seriously.”

“It is this seemingly perfect world on the exterior, and then once you crack the surface, you find imperfections and lies and darkness that we all have inside of each of us,” she continued. “I think the darkness gets heightened in our search for perfection. I think that’s kind of infiltrated into everyone’s world now through social media. Our world consumed by this strife for this unattainable perfection. That is harmful.”

Sydney added, “You find yourself comparing yourself a lot to other people and their highlight reel — what you’re seeing. We all do it. I’m not going to show the worst parts of me. I’m not going to show my bad days on Instagram. Some people do, but at least for what my job is, I have to keep this image, and it’s a lot of pressure.”
