You might call Bella Thorne an overachiever. She started modeling at six months old, and has since added the roles of actress, singer, and author to her resume. Following her appearances on Disney’s “Shake It Up!”, Thorne has been spending her days writing a YA book series and co-starring in the upcoming comedy, “The Duff.” The charismatic teen is self-aware, honest, and not afraid to show off her personality—on our set she belted out ‘80s rock tunes and played a mean air guitar. With so much on her plate, Yahoo Beauty sat down with Thorne for answers to all out burning questions: How she does it all, does she eat carbs, and how does she take such perfect selfies.
Yahoo Beauty: You’ve taken on so much at a young age. When did you know that acting was something you really wanted to do?
Bella Thorne: When I was eight-and-a-half we were staying in LA and my brother got me started in acting. I’m dyslexic so everyone told me I couldn’t be an actress because I couldn’t read but I proved them wrong. I didn’t know at the time that a lot of famous actors have dyslexia. It wasn’t easy but I knew then that I wanted to do acting. The singing and dancing came along with the role in Shake it Up.
YB: What has been your favorite role that you’ve played so far?
BT: Probably playing Belle in “Amityville: The Awakening”. I’m excited to see The Duff because I think it will be really funny and fans are getting really excited. It was the funniest table read that I’ve ever been too. I looked at everyone and was like, “How am I going to hold my own? All these characters around me are so good.”
YB: When you’re looking at acting roles, do you look for things you are able to relate to?
BT: It’s not that I look for certain things, but more if it’s a really good script then I’ll do it. I want to do a script like “Upstream Color.” It’s one of my favorite movies. It was made on a $40,000 budget, which you must know, is impossible. It’s a great movie.
