Kayla Ewell, who plays Vicki on The Vampire Diaries, has no idea why motorists would think that she would expose herself in public following reports that she and her female co-stars flashed their breasts in Forsyth, Ga. After all, the size of her "breasts aren't necessarily something people would be interested in." Still, Ewell found herself in the middle of the controversy that has now been blown into proportion.
A little refresher: Cops responded to several phone calls about a group of women who were allegedly flashing motorists and hanging off a bridge in Forsyth, Ga. last month. When police arrived at the scene, they found four actresses from The Vampire Diaries
, including Candice Accola, Sara Canning, Nina Dobrev and Ewell, as well as photographer, Tyler Shields, who were all taken into police custody, paid a fine, and were released soon after.
Contrary to reports, however, officers who looked through the group's pictures only found numerous photographs of the females hanging, sitting, and straddling the bridge," according to a report by the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, instead of the rumored racy photos.
"They were like, 'We're getting calls that people are flashing,'" Ewell told Entertainment Weekly
. "And we're like, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa. The only thing that's flashing is our camera.'"
"[The situation] is so exaggerated and [has been] made into something it's not," she added, explaining that her group was asked to follow officials to the police station, where they were ticketed for loitering on a public walkway. Ewell also denies reports that the group was drinking during their allegedly racy photo shoot since this happened at 11 in the morning.
While this happened a month ago, sadly, it has overshadowed last week's triumphant premiere of The Vampire Diaries
, all the more upsetting Ewell.
"Having this be the first story that's released is so frustrating," Ewell fumed. "[The situation] is so exaggerated and [has been] made into something it's not."
