While there’s no doubt that being a huge megastar in the public eye is not easy one anyone, being a huge mega childhood star has got to be even more difficult.

As a matter of fact, actress Bella Thorne recently opened up about how she had to work hard to break free from her Disney Channel image after she rose to fame thanks to her breakthrough role on Shake it Up at the age of 14. Here’s what she has to say.

While there’s little that Bella Thorne hasn’t accomplished in the entertainment industry, she says that growing up in the spotlight hasn’t always been an easy experience for her. Speaking to Fox News in a new interview, Bella says that she’s finally in a place in her life where she can call the shots, which is where she wants to be.

Bella puts it this way, “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.”

Bella also said that the squeaky-clean Disney image isn’t a very realistic one, especially in the celebrity world today. “That image is very difficult. It’s also never been me,” Thorne she explained. “I always just like to do whatever no one else is doing. People that are real talk about real things. I think that was much more important than my image. The Disney image was much less important.”

What’s more, Bella said that she’s learned not to let her critics and her social media trolls get the best of her, even though it hasn’t always been easy.

She explained, “You just can’t react. If someone says you’re an ugly piece of s–t and you look bad, you’re thinking, ‘Am I really an ugly piece of s–t? Is that who I am?’ By doing that you are giving those words weight. Those are really just words.”
