Lucy Hale’s picture is being used by somebody on dating app Tinder.
The former Pretty Little Liars star shared a picture of herself on Instagram Stories in October (17) with the caption “Sharlene on Tinder” followed by crying with laughter emojis, and she opened up about the incident on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (06Mar18), revealing she first discovered she was being impersonated when a friend came across a profile using her picture on the app.
“I am not on Tinder but I think some people think I’m on Tinder,” she explained. “There’s always like fake Facebook and Instagram accounts but one day one of my friends matched up with (someone) who he thought was me, but someone’s using my pictures. Her name’s Sharlene and she’s 26.”
Lucy then joked that perhaps it was just her using a pseudonym, by saying, “Or maybe it’s me? Maybe it truly is me?”
Jimmy said, “So if you see a girl named Sharlene, you could end up on a date with Lucy Hale,” and she added, “You could potentially have a really terrible date with me.”
The 28-year-old is thought to be dating her Life Sentence co-star Riley Smith, 39. They were spotted locking lips while waiting for their car outside a restaurant on Valentine’s Day in February. They recently finished filming the first season of the TV show, which premieres in the U.S. on Wednesday.
