Childhood and adolescence

Bella’s bombshell looks can be attributed to a mixture of various heritages: her father was Cuban (died in 2007 in a traffic accident) and her mother is Italian, with some Irish, English, Welsh, and German descent.

Bella hated going to school as she was constantly bullied by her classmates: the girl was not only dyslexic, but also lived in a suburban area and her English was pretty bad, as she spoke Spanish as her first language. As a result, she transferred from public school to home-schooling and eventually attended a special learning center, where in a peaceful environment, she began reading and writing. In her interview with American Cheerleader magazine, the actress explained that she overcame her dyslexia by religiously reading everything and anything she could find, including the labels of cereal boxes.

The mental state of a young celebrity was severely damaged due to the physical and mental abuse she endured from a young age until she was 14. Bella came out with this information only in 2018 and up to this day refuses to say the name of her abuser.

Acting career

Bella’s childhood was not all sunshine and rainbows: her mother, Tamara, was a single mom of four and could barely make two ends meet. Little Bella tried her best to support her family, that is why she took on modeling and acting. By the way, she secured her first modeling gig for the Parents Magazine catalogue, when she was just a couple weeks old baby.

Bella Thorne made her film debut in 2003, when she was cast in a secondary role in a comedy film Stuck on You, starring Matt Damon, Greg Kinnear and Eva Mendes. She went on to appear in numerous movies and television series, including a comedy-drama Entourage and teen drama series The O.C.. In 2007, Bella received her first relatively big role in a prime time drama series Dirty Sexy Money, revolving around a lawyer and his family. Young actress appeared in four episodes.

The next year, young actress got a leading role in a television drama series My Own Worst Enemy, alongside Christian Slater and Taylor Lautner. The role of the daughter of the main character became a true breakthrough in Bella’s career and yielded a Young Artist’s Award, however Bella’s real stardom was yet to come.

In 2009, Thorne portrayed a revenge-seeking villain Angela in a supernatural horror film Forget Me Not opposite Carly Schroeder. Next year Bella was offered a starring role in Disney Channel’s sitcom Shake It Up! – and since that moment the life of a red-haired beauty was never the same.

Bella was cast as an aspiring dancer with big plans for the future, CeCe Jones. Her best friend, Rocky Blue, was portrayed by the amazing Zendaya. Bella later stated that she never pursued this particular role, however, she had no choice but to go to the audition, as her family was struggling.
I didn't want to audition for Shake It Up!. I literally said in my audition, 'I don't sing. I don't dance. I'm basically tone deaf, and I'm not funny. So I don't know why I'm here.' And everybody just started laughing. They all thought it was a joke. But we were about to live physically on the street if I didn't have that role.
After signing the contract, Bella had to attend three dancing classes every day. She has also made moderate progress in her singing and recorded her debut single Watch Me with Zendaya, which became the soundtrack to Shake It Up! and reached 86 on the US Billboard Hot 100 Chart.

The sitcom was an instant success and Bella Thorne gained thousands of fans overnight. While filming the third season of Shake It Up! young starlet managed to take part in another Disney Chanel project – Disney Chanel Original Movie Frenemies, alongside her co-star and friend Zendaya, Stefanie Scott, Nick Robinson and Mary Mouser.

Soon Bella Thorne was officially signed to the record label Hollywood Records and in 2013 announced her debut album with 11 songs. Bella mentioned that she was highly influenced by Britney Spears, Kesha and iconic girl band Destiny’s Child. However, two years later, she claimed that the album was pulled from production due her dissatisfaction with its quality.

Bella’s contract with Disney has literally saved her family’s financial situation, though Bella admits to hating that period of her life and often speaks ill of it. She disliked being a puppet for the huge corporation and didn’t agree with impossibly high moral standards set for the Disney child stars. She could never truly be herself, as she had to have an unattainable image of a good girl. For instance, when a 14-year-old Bella had the imprudence to upload a photo wearing a bikini to one of her social media platforms, she was immediately reprehended. Moreover, many directors hated the Disney girl label and had no desire to cast the aspiring actress in any serious projects.
