What Makes Bella Thorne the Ultimate Girly-Girl?

The effervescent actress/singer Bella Thorne is highly in demand, with at least eight projects in the works. One of the things we love the most about the Shake it Up star is that she is a true girly-girl. From Thorne’s sweet nature, to her elegantly feminine style and her talent for writing YA literature, here are 15 reasons Bella Thorne is all girl.


She’s Devoted to BCBG Fashion



Fashion is a form of self expression and Bella Thorne is devoted to BCBG, known for their playful, ultra-feminine clothing. She told Teen Vogue in 2012: “They have really bright colors and wrap dresses, which I really like.”


Is Besties with Drew Barrymore



While filming the 2014 rom com Blended, she became friends with the sweet, lovely Drew Barrymore, who like Thorne has a fun sense of style. Thorne told Jimmy Fallon that Barrymore gave her the nickname “Pickle“.


Was Named After a Disney Princess



If a Disney princess came to life, she would probably be a lot like Thorne, who was actually named after Disney princess Belle from Beauty and the Beast. The star’s full name is Annabella Avery Thorne.


She’s a Successful YA Author



She wrote the Autumn Falls YA fantasy book series, featuring a coming-of-age storyline with a magical twist. Thorne wove elements of her own life into these novels about a lovable and relatable heroine, dealing with many real-girl issues.


Dreams of Co-Starring with Jennifer Lawrence



Of all the actors in Hollywood, Thorne says she dreams of working with the endearing Jennifer Lawrence, which completely makes sense considering how popular JLaw is, especially with young female moviegoers.


She’s Tenderhearted



Thorne is obviously a generous, tenderhearted young woman. She’s a big supporter of the Humane Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation and The Nomad Organization, which provides children in Africa with education, food and medical supplies .


She Idolizes Emma Watson and Natalie Portman



Bella Thorne idolizes fellow girly-girls Emma Watson and Natalie Portman. She has a lot in common with the two popular, fashion conscious actresses, who, like Thorne, each have their own distinctive style.


She’s a Romantic



Bella Thorne seems to really like being in relationships. Soon after ending her long-term relationship with Tristan Klier in 2014, the actress started dating Gregg Sulkin (Pretty Little Liars), and they recently bought a house together.


She’s Great at Voicing Adorable Animated Characters



She’s clearly one of the most adorable young stars around, which could be one of the reasons Thorne is so good at voicing animated characters, including Gerda in Snow Queen 2 and Cora in Ratchet & Clank.


Has a Clean-Cut, Elegant Style



While Thorne says there are days when she feels like being a tomboy, other times she’ll “wear a big poufy skirt and be a girly-girl.” For the red carpet she likes “clean-cut, very proper, very elegant looks.”


She’s Still a “Twilight” Fan



A lot of girls were immersed in Twilight during it’s heyday, but Bella Thorne is a hardcore Twilight fan who is still loyal to the franchise several years after the final movie premiered. By the way, she’s team Jacob.


She Likes Going on Dates at Disneyland



Thorne enjoys going on dates at Disneyland, and her favorite ride is Space Mountain. She and ex-boyfriend Gregg Sulkin really got into the spirit on a trip there last year and posted some super cute pictures of themselves to social media.


Influenced by Strong Female Music Artists



Bella Thorne is an accomplished recording artist, scoring a hit single with bubblegum pop song Call It Whatever in late 2014. Her biggest music influences are sexy, confident female artists: Lily Allen, Destiny’s Child, Kesha, and Britney Spears.


She’s Tackling Romantic Projects



She has been filming a number of projects lately that either center on romance or have a romantic storyline, such as her upcoming movie Midnight Sun with Patrick Schwarzenegger, and TV series Famous in Love, debuting next year.
