In a groundbreaking and super candid interview, Bella Thorne revealed a lot about her dating life and her days on the Disney Channel. And let's just say she didn't have the best things to say about either.
Bella talked about being lonely because she's a relationship type of girl. Right now, she is single AF. Not only that but she revealed what it's actually like to date in the public eye and how every time she's seen with a boy, they are automatically getting married. To be honest, it seems totally exhausting.
Besides that, Bella dropped some other bombshells as well about her time on Shake It Up as well as the relationship she had with her mom. Bella explained that during those younger years, she suffered from, "a mentality where you don't know who you are."
She said that her natural voice is very deep but Disney told her she must talk in a higher pitch to appeal to their audience and viewers. Bella also said that she got in trouble at the age of 14 because she was wearing a so-called "skimpy bathing suit" and was photographed in it.
Bella said, "My mom was so scared after that, for them firing us and us losing our house, so it was kind of like, 'Don't be yourself, just be good." It was this mantra of just being good that forced Bella into this funk of being someone she's not. She's a tomboy who loves jeans and ripped t-shirts. The girl on Shake It Up was just a character she played.
She said, "Getting my septum pierced because I felt like it, getting a tattoo if I wanted one, and just doing me...People will ask me, 'Who are you now?' But this is who I've really been—you just didn't see me before. I was just a puppet. I wasn't allowed to make my own decisions or think for myself in any way."
Fans would think that Shake It Up skyrocketed her to fame and while it may have put her in the spotlight, it didn't give her everything she had wanted. Bella revealed casting directors said, "They were like, 'No, we don't want her to come in because she's so Disney.' I had to literally beg for an audition."
Okay, this is heartbreaking. Now that Bella has become herself and proved that she is a real actress, she landed some major roles in upcoming movies titled, Midnight Sun and The Death and Life of John F. Donovan as well as the main role in the television series Famous In Love.
One thing is for sure, this girl has come a long way since her Disney days.
