One Word: Bella Thorne

by Aaron Finch

Annabella Avery Thorne (born October 8, 1997) is an American actress, model, singer, and writer. She is the recipient of several accolades, including an Imagen Award, a Shorty Award, a Teen Choice Award and three Young Artist Awards. Thorne first received recognition for her roles as Margaux in Hannah Montana: The Movie (2009) and Tancy “Teenie” Henrickson in the television series Big Love.

1. Jenna’s mom has a crush on Thorne’s character in Big Love

Let’s look at who she is:

“I guess I don’t have to be young to be beautiful,” Bella Thorne twitter said. “All the people I see who are younger than me, and they’re all so pretty. I prefer maturity,” she added. “My mother and father are both 15 years older than me, but they’re still very attractive.”

2. Thorne said she wants to be known as Jenna’s mom in real life

“Talking of her teenage fans, Thorne, who appears in a new ad for Abercrombie & Fitch, said: “I want to be Jenna’s mom and I want to be that attractive woman that people want to be like.” 

3. Thorne went to rehab and had some really wild times there:

The actress, who is currently in the process of filming her debut film, ‘Blended,’ admits that she has been lucky to have not long done the ‘wetworks’ – but says it was all worth it when she recently picked up a “bombshell” while at a New York nightclub chasing a guy. 

…Thorne also revealed that she once put her parents through hell by “not cleaning up after myself or my sister”, leading to them being close to kicking her out, but now says they are “fans”.

4. Thorne was invited to a private party with Bieber and Hailey Baldwin.

That’s right. Thorne recently confirmed that she was invited to Justin Bieber’s private party which saw him share a kiss with Hailey Baldwin – but she left early. “So I got invited to a very special party the other night,” she wrote on Twitter on January 30, adding when someone responded to her tweet saying they would bring her back some cupcakes, “No it was too lame, i left after 40 min.”

5. Thorne has trouble taking compliments:

“I get really bad anxiety when I know I’m going to be around my crush,” said Thorne, who is currently single. “I’m like, ‘Oh my gosh, I just want to die right now. I can’t.’ I start crying, and it’s really bad.”

6. Thorne’s ex-boyfriend turned out to be gay:

“I used to date a guy and he was one of my best friends,” she said. “We were together for two years. One day we got into an argument because I had said something behind his back that pissed him off. Later, he called me and was like, ‘You know that thing you did? Don’t ever do it again.’ It ended up being this whole drama situation, but then three months later he came out as gay.”

7. Thorne isn’t shy about loving herself:

“I know that I look great, so I’m not insecure about the way I look,” Thorne told MTV News. “I have to work on it, but it doesn’t stop me from being happy.”

8. Thorne was written off Law & Order: SVU for being too young:

“I was written off of SVU because I was too young,” Thorne said. “They didn’t think that I could be as dedicated and enthusiastic as they thought they were going to get from someone my age.” The actress said that she fell in love with the show after she watched it when she was 14.

9. Thorne lied about her age to try out for the role she has now in Blended:

“I had to be 15 because that’s how old [my character] is,” she said. “So they were like, ‘Well you’re going to have to be 15.’ Then I came back and I was 16, and they were like, ‘OK,’ and then when I was 17, we called for the movie again and it didn’t work out.” Explaining why she was so determined to land the role of Sophie in the Adam Sandler film, Thorne said: “The script was so funny, it made me laugh out loud when I read it!”

10. Thorne is obsessed with teen drama “Gossip Girl”:

“I love Gossip Girl,” she said. “I’m obsessed with it. I can’t stop watching it.”

11. Thorne turned 18 at Coachella:

Thorne, who was invited to attend the festival because of her role as Sophie in Adam Sandler’s Blended, celebrated her birthday during the festival’s final weekend. At the end of Saturday night, she posted a picture of herself standing atop stage with a caption that read: “Coachella 2012 – birthday girl #18.”

12. Thorne has an exceptionally beautiful face and body:

Thorne looks like an angel but she likes to look like herself too:

13. Thorne is a big fan of Justin Bieber and One Direction:

“I’m obsessed with One Direction,” she said. “Like, I am such a big fan. I listen to them all the time. When they came out with ‘What Makes You Beautiful,’ it was like everyone in my family was obsessed; my dad and I were singing it. We knew every word.”…Talking about Justin Bieber, Thorne said: “He’s so cute and so talented.”
