Bella Thorne is 23 years old, and reflecting on her teenage years as a Disney Channel darling.
The actress and singer, who starred as CeCe in Shake It Up from 2010 to 2013, discussed the stress of upholding the clean Disney image with Fox News on Tuesday (Feb. 23). "There are definitely a lot of pressures in the Disney eye to be so perfect and I think that's where Disney in a sense goes wrong because they make their kids seem perfect," she told the publication.
"That image is very difficult. It's also never been me," Thorne she continued, before adding, "Little kids growing up don't need to see perfect people. Kids need to see real. They need to see diversity, they need to see intriguing."
