While preparing for the premiere of “Iron Man 3″ in Los Angeles, Bella Thorne – CeCe Jones from the series “Shake It Up” – talked about what she likes to wear, how it feels to walk on a red carpet, Demi Lovato and more!
Our GUESS Access Blogger, Sonia Baghdady, chats with Bella Thorne on her personal style and starring role on the hit Disney show, “Shake It Up”. Check it out!
Although she “shakes it up” on her hit Disney show, fifteen-year-old Bella Thorne admits, “I was actually never a dancer. I just fell in love with the script—so I had to freestyle my way into the audition.” The former child model, who plays CeCe Jones on the series opposite her costar (and BFF!) Zendaya, works hard both on and off set, waking up early, taking voice and dance lessons, and constantly studying her lines. “Acting isn’t a side thing—you have to live and breathe it. And I have to work extra hard because I am dyslexic,” she says. “People said that I couldn’t be an actress, but I’m proving them wrong. Acting has helped me overcome the challenge.” The home-schooled starlet, who now reads above grade level, speaks openly about her struggle with the learning disorder. “I love my fans, and I want them to know what I’ve gone through. I want to inspire them. I believe that anyone can become better, if you put in the effort,” she says. Bella’s positive and ambitious nature has brought her starring roles, more than two million devoted Twitter followers, and a record deal—but the teen has dreams beyond the small screen. “After Shake It Up, I want to do films, dramatic roles—and I also want to go to college. USC!”

Everyone will be watching this year’s Super Bowl on Feb. 3 for plenty of different reasons — either for the game, the commercials, or Beyoncé‘s halftime performance, to name just a few. But when Bella Thorne spoke toHollywoodLife.com about what she is most looking forward to, she revealed a surprising answer! Check it out!
“Probably Beyoncé’s performance! I love all of Destiny’s Child, I love all the old music. I hope she does, ‘Bills Bills Bills’ or ‘Bug a Boo.’ I just love Destiny’s Child!” the Shake It Up star gleefully professed. She added that if she has a chance to do the Super Bowl halftime show someday, she has the perfect plan for it: “I would play on the whole sports thing, so I probably would be wearing pads or something, but they would be cute pads. Sparkly pads and not sporty football pads at all, and then I would mimic the whole, like, sports thing in my performance!”
