Bridgit Mendler is coming out with her own sunglasses collection and JJJ already knows we want every single pair.
The 22-year-old Undateable actress has teamed up with Dicks Cottons for the signature collection, with the first pair being released later this summer and two more to follow.
“I’m pumped to work with Dicks Cottons,” Bridgit shared. “We were on the same page with sunglasses taste from right off the bat. I’m looking forward to sharing our ideas with my fans around the world.”
The collaboration will feature three new sunglasses styles with multiple colors per style, and will be released on Bridgit’s and Dicks Cottons’ social media channels and on DicksCottons.com. Each pair will retail for under $50.
“Bridgit embodies the happy-go-lucky feeling that we like to put in every product we release,” T.J. Eaton, partner and designer at Dick Cottons added. “She enjoys the beach and traveling, lives the lifestyle, and loves hanging out with her friends. Plus, she looks amazing in sunglasses. We are a natural fit to help her add the title of ‘fashion designer’ to her impressive and diverse resume of accomplishments.”
The 22-year-old Undateable actress answered fan questions on Facebook on Tuesday night (April 21) and opened up about her GLC fam.
“I love the cast and I think there is definitely a chance of a GLC reunion,” Bridgit shared after one fan asked about any possible reunion. ” I was on Good Luck Charlie for longer so it will always be an important part of me but Undateable is the world I’m in right now so I feel very connected to it.”
Bridgit added about her new Undateable family: “I miss disney! I loved working there so much. But NBC has been so kind to me and the cast and crew of Undateable is another family so I’m grateful for that.”
TELL JJJ: Do you want to see a Good Luck Charlie reunion?
The 22-year-old actress opened up about moving from Disney to NBC, Undateable and social media. Check it:
On going from Good Look Charlie to NBC: “It has definitely been different working with comedians, but encouraging for improv. We do a lot of improvisation on the show, so the approach to comedy is also new. I enjoyed working on Good Luck Charlie, and now I’ve come into this new series, and it’s like a new world of comedy.”
On making music with the Undateable cast: “I think they were familiar with my background in music, yes. But also, my co-star on the show, Brent Morin, and I did a little bit of singing in an episode, and it went well and it was fun. I think they thought it’d be fun to elaborate on that and make a video, something fun and extra that people would be able to find online on the show.”
On being aware of what she posts online: “I probably do feel more self aware on what certain things I comment on online, but I think for the most part I share things about my life, whether that’s a photo of my food or an animal. I’m well aware those things are necessarily fun, but I guess that’s how I do social media; it’s not something I use to rant about things. I’m not really inhibited to post different things about my social life, because there isn’t much to hide there. I think it all comes down to me being not that wild of a person, so it doesn’t leave much to shelter.”
On what makes a person ‘undateable’: “I think [that's] someone who isn’t interested in getting to know other people. Some people just aren’t very intrigued by others and don’t have a curiosity for life, and I think that’s important.”
Bello‘s new issue is available for download on all smart phones and tablets.
Bridgit Mendler joins host Renee Bargh on Extra for a cool interview at Westfield Century City on Tuesday afternoon (March 31) in Los Angeles.
“I think she really wants to be liked and she wants to fit in, and that’s an interesting combination with how she won’t compromise her moral ideas of what’s right,” the 22-year-old actress spoke about her character Candace with TVLine.
Bridgit added, “She’s kind of been going along with the flow of whatever the guys say, up until the point where they start saying things about dating that she doesn’t agree with and she thinks aren’t right.”
Bridgit is also pictured with co-star Chris D’Elia below at the 2015 NBCUniversal Summer Press Day at The Langham Huntington Hotel & Spa on Thursday afternoon (April 2) in Pasadena, Calif.
