Bella Thorne wishes people would sometimes see her at her most vulnerable.
Most notably, the actress spoke out about her struggle with dermatitis and how much it lowered her self-esteem:
“I went through this terrible acne phase and I cried every night for two months straight. It sounds really stupid to be like ‘Oh, you know, I cared about what my face looked like,’ but you know when you’re a girl and people genuinely don’t accept you because you have a problem like acne, which everyone gets. It’s actually unbelievable the amount of people that would look at me differently just because I had acne.”
It is pretty weird how lots of people suffer from acne and yet we all still judge each other for it. People are ridiculous!
However, it seems like that issue ultimately made her stronger and gave her the means to cope with other problems:
“Friends have told me I’m a good person to have around when they are going through a tough time because I find a way to make them laugh, which is the biggest compliment. You have to take a deep breath, realize that whatever is stressing you out is not the end of the world, and trust that you’ll move on.”
That’s some really good advice to keep in mind!
She may still be quite young, but Bella has great perspective on life and a good head on her shoulders.
We know it’ll serve her well in the years to come!
