Disney alum Bella Thorne recently spoke up about the pressure she is placed under as a teenage celebrity. The 16 year old star of Disney Channel's Shake It Up, which ended its three-season run last year, has become one of the most popular teenagers on the planet with over five million Twitter followers and almost eight million Facebook fans.
"I feel the pressure to be the perfect teenager," Bella admitted to British magazine Company. "I make mistakes, my friends make mistakes, we all make mistakes, and it's something you live with and learn through life." Furthermore, she acknowledged that people do tend to judge her and her actions more harshly than they would if she were a normal teen due to her celebrity status.
What's next for Bella now that she's no longer with the Disney Channel? Well, the actress will appearing on the big screen in several big films this year, including two comedies, an indie film and a horror flick. "I'm taking it slow, but I'm definitely blossoming and growing as an actress," Bella said about her upcoming movie roles.
We can catch Bella in theatres this May in Blended, a romantic-comedy film starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. She plays the daughter of Adam Sandler's character. And as for the horror film... We just can't imagine funky CeCe Jones in a horror film! Can you?
