Bella Thorne Covers 'Elle Canada's May 2015 Issue
Here’s what the 17-year-old DUFF actress had to say:
On being true to herself: “Honestly, I know some people are going to trash me, but I’m trying to show everyone what is happening in the world. If you close your eyes and think that bullying and drug abuse are not issues for your kids or your best friend—you’re wrong. I want to show that good people do bad things too. I know I’m going to get a bunch of hate, but let them hate. I’m not a bad person for choosing a role that shows people how life is.”
On her next role in Perfect High: “You’re not a bad person because you get locked into something stupid. My character gets caught up in this world because of something she loves [dancing] more than anything. Playing someone who is addicted and being in those scenes was surreal. It made me feel like I was hungry for…something. That is scary.”
On her fashion choices: “I hate the way the media says ‘We just want to see the real Bella; we just want her to be a regular teenager.’ Well, you’re not letting me be that by calling me a slut because I’m wearing high-waisted shorts; you’re not letting me when you speculate about what I’m doing at Coachella. Teenagers go to Coachella; teenagers sometimes wear revealing clothes—it’s part of growing up and finding out who you are.”
