She acts. She sings. And shes a pro with a brush and blush.
Yes, Bella Thorne, the pierced, outspoken, and almost disconcertingly blunt actress, singer, and social media sensation has another major talent: She does all her own makeup. For everything. All the time more on that here.
Oh, and she dresses herself too, picking out her own clothes based on her mood.The linchpin ofher New York promotional tour for her new show Famous in Lovewas a net body-stocking, paired one day with flared pants and a cropped black sweater.
Her look, says Thorne, can go anywhere from super-goth to rocker-grunge to hippie. We DIY a lot ofour own clothes, to be honest. It depends what Im feeling that day.
In this age of the hyper-sanitized celebrities who parse every word and agonize over saying anything remotely offensive or personal, Thorne is a blast of fresh air. The 19-year-old is the star of Freeforms soapy new show, which premiered on Tuesday night, and playsPaige, who goes from college student to overnight It-girl and cant quite process being in the spotlight.Thorneherself isnt sure how shed handle sudden success.
I would have no idea. Sometimes I look at my character and think shes so naive. And other times, I realize that if I was just thrust in this, if I didnt learn this, maybe I would be even more naive. I have no idea, if I wasnt raised in this, says Thorne.
Thorne has been working for years. Shegot her start as a child performer, breaking out on the Disney Channel buddy comedyShake It Upnext to Zendaya, which ran for three seasons before ending in November 2013. Since then, Thorne played Adam Sandlers daughter in 2014s Blended, and the girlfriend inAlexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day.Now, shes headlining her own series, and sharing basically every aspect of her life on social media.
And what a life it is.Thorne has been outspoken about her battles with acne, her suicidal thoughts when she was younger, and her sexuality, which is fluid. She recently tweeted that she had depression, and then deleted it after the ensuing uproar.
I took it down because maybe some people were hurt by what I said in some way. I just wanted to say, Youre not alone, says Thorne. The people you think have the most perfect lives, dont.
She wants to clarify why she shared what she did, and she understands why some peopleperhaps took her words the wrong way.
I wasnt saying that I clinically went to a doctor. I didnt know it was a big thing. You can judge me for believing my beliefs. In my family, we never went to doctors growing up. I dont like medication. I dont even take birth control. I wont even take Advil or Tylenol. I power through. Im all natural, she says.
Yes, the negativity gets to her. But to Thorne, the whole point is to share things no one else is willing to talk about.
Its so OK for you to be unhappy, or to think these things, says Thorne. Youre only making it more sad, the more you dont talk about it. Its OK for your mind to naturally wander and for you to be sad. Sometimes, youre just sad. Your arc in life is to be a happier, better person, the more you grow. If youre shutting yourself off, youre never just sayingit or getting help for yourself in that way.
That said, things do get under her skin. You could tell me Im pretty 100 times a day, but if you tell me Im ugly, thats going to stick, she says.
But she has no intention of putting walls up now. Thorne lives with her sister and some friends, whom she calls her crew, and says that we like to be more on the open side. If you do start to get guarded, youre not as happy, so why are you here? I would stop if I wasnt having fun.
Thorne managesall her own social media, no small feat considering she posts on Snapchat, Instagram, and Twitter. And thats also impacted her dating life, with some would-be love interests refusing to be part of her highly-public existence and resenting how much of her life she exposes to her fans.Ive dated people who are like, I dont want people to know my life. It ended up becoming a problem, she says, of the paparazzi that constantly follow her.
