Hale has now told Seventeen that she is so glad that she has recovered.

"I'm so unbelievably lucky that I'm not like that anymore because it is a horrible way of life and it's miserable," she said. "It consumes everything you think about and you can't pursue things you want to do... I used to spend so many wasted days being depressed and feeling gross.

"I learned you have to be happy. People who are the happiest are the most beautiful."

Hale added that she used to be "confused", saying: "I would say things I wouldn't normally say, or date people I knew I shouldn't be dating, or go places I know I shouldn't be at - just making bad decisions and mistakes. Not to say I still don't make mistakes all the time, but I feel like I'm heading in the right direction."

Hale explained that she has "weeded out the negative people" in her life, saying: "I know what I have to offer and I feel good about it."
