Bella Thorne is giving credit where credit is due in her new interview with Wonderland magazine.
The 17-year-old actress opened up about The Duff and playing the mean girl, and gave a shout out to the Disney kids who she worked with. Check it:
On the role she actually wanted in The Duff: “I honestly wanted to play Bianca, the main character. The director Ari Sandel, was like, ‘No, you’ll be better as Madison!’ I said okay, because I just really wanted to work on that film. I love the comedy! I was laughing out loud in my bedroom at two o’clock in the morning reading the script. I loved the message behind it, it’s really important and people need to know that in life you’ll be labelled, but it’s our job to climb out of that box and show people who we are.”
On giving praise to Disney actors: “Disney has done so much for me, and I can only thank them for that. It’s hard to get work after you’ve been on the Disney Channel. You have to work extra hard to get somebody to believe you’re a real actor, and that is difficult. All of the Disney kids that I know, my goodness, they work hard! They’re such good actors and they work day and night, but they’re still kicking it, they’re still chilling. They’re amazing people, I can only give props to them. But I’m trying to move away from it, I want to do films now, not just comedy. My background is in drama, so I want to get back to that.”
On what she really loves to do in her spare time: “I love to watch Netflix, in bed, I love my room, honestly, I’m not gonna lie, I do. I love having people come over and us just chilling upstairs. Let’s not put on heels, let’s not put on a bunch of make up, let’s just stay here.”
