Bella Thorne has some very big news that she’s excited to share with the world: She finally has breasts. The former Shake It Up star is relieved because she’ll no longer have to worry about suffering any embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions that result from attempts at looking fuller-chested.
According to ET Online, the 17-year-old Disney princess talked about puberty during her recent interview with Teen Vogue. Some aspects of growing up really suck, but Bella Thorne focused on the bright side of entering that awkward era of blemishes and bad moods.
“I’ve always been flat-chested. It is only this year, at 17, that I started to develop boobs. I mean, finally!”
Perhaps Thorne just wanted to let her fans know that her breasts naturally developed because she wants to avoid rumors that she has breast implants. It might seem crazy to accuse an underage girl of getting a boob job, but it happens. As the Inquisitr recently reported, there’s speculation that Kylie Jenner has breast implants.
Bella plays a mean girl who thinks that she’s just the bee’s knees in The DUFF, but the actress is not a narcissistic queen bee in real life. In fact, she once suffered the kind of embarrassing accident that so often befalls geeky, awkward girls in teen movies.
“I was working on a film, and they wanted me to look older. The wardrobe person was like, ‘Put padding in your bra.’ I’m walking on set. The director picked something off the ground and — in front of everyone — he goes, ‘I think this fell out.’ I was mortified. It was literally a pad from my bra.”
Bella Thorne might not have to use padding to make herself look older any longer, but the former child star still has to work hard to prove that she’s not a Disney kid anymore. It looks like the adorable redhead is taking a different approach than another famous former Disney star, scantily-clad wild child Miley Cyrus. Instead of dressing sexy and singing about doing drugs, Thorne is trying to scare her fans into seeing that she’s all grown up.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Bella is becoming a bit of a scream queen with her roles in the new Amityville horror movie and the MTV Scream series based on the popular scary film franchise. According to Splash News, Thorne also recently wrapped filming on a Lifetime movie titled Perfect High. She’ll play a high school dancer addicted to heroin.
Do you think Bella Thorne will continue to avoid the child star curse as she gets further and further away from her Disney days, or will she soon be longing for those pre-puberty years?
