Bella turns 24 today and we want to wish her the best of birthdays! We wish happiness, health, love!

xoxo Team Adoring Bella Thorne


With a possible Lord of the Rings and Star Wars inspired wedding looming overhead, the ever so authentic Bella Thorne surprised me. Connecting from her Los Angeles haven, the 23-year-old mulls over heavy trauma and personal growth with a maturity well beyond her years.

Thorne released her first book, The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray Vol. 1, on July 23, 2019 and hasn’t looked back. Easily misunderstood, the entertainer acknowledges she bares no filter and her book further solidifies her frankness. A new paperback edition will be released September 9, featuring newly-added poems amongst her journey through self-realization.

From feature film roles to creating a consulting agency, Thorne’s ambitiousness knows no bounds. And with that, her biggest accomplishment still stands– she has left her mark with Mental Disarray.

Flaunt spoke with Thorne via Zoom about regrets (or lack thereof), future writing endeavors, and her love for all things truly vintage.

Can you tell me a little bit about the projects you have going on right now?
I have a song coming out with Juicy J that I’m really excited for. I directed a… music video with my muse Abella Danger. I am really excited for people to hear it. It’s definitely a fun song and the video is controversial. It’s a very sexy video…I’m in the middle of filming a movie right now. We’re gonna do the release soon, but I am not allowed to say what it’ll be yet…After this movie, I go to Italy. I film another movie and then we have ‘Time Is Up’ that’s coming out. Habits just came out.

So The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray came out in 2019, and now the paperback edition is coming out. That’s a pretty big gap in between releases. How do you still feel about it? Is there anything you would have changed?
Everything still holds up. In the original [release], there was [poems] that were left out, and so I thought they’re very important to be back in. Those are in this one as well. There’s some newer ones from the last book that I’m happy [about]. I’m working on the second book. The second book is called Mental Rehab. This one’s called Mental Disarray. It’s taking me longer than I had originally thought. I wrote the first one very quickly, and this one, because it is about mental rehab and really getting my mind in a better place and a healthier place and the steps forward to do that, you kind of really have to watch my journey from Disarray to the end of Mental Rehab. Then you’ll be able to, I’m hoping, see how far I’ve actually come. But, I just can’t do that in months. I need to actually do the work and writing into my mind. I’ve been writing that one [and] this will take a little while though. I wanted to get my fans something else. Everyone still comes up to me about this book. Every one of my fans really, really connect to this book so hard so I wanted to give them something new to hold them over a little bit while I work on the second one.

What was the reason behind using a typewriter? What was your process?
I had handwritten two books that were going to be put into one and then I left it on a plane. That killed me. All this handwritten material that I could have never get back. While I was in the middle of creating Filthy Fangs, I was in the middle of creating another company…Because Life of a Wannabe Mogul, I really want everyone that reads it to realize how much they have a chance ar the world, how little they think constantly they do, but that’s not the truth. I think that that’s really inspiring and all of those were gone… So on the second one, my handwriting is also a piece of shit. It’s literally terrible… By someone’s handwriting, you can kind of tell what the inner workings of their brain looks like. And now that I’m doing the second one, I keep debating whether I should change format, and not do a typewriter, do something new. If I should do some handwritten things… I just love the type writer, the feeling that the vulnerableness about having this page that’s not touched up. This page is exactly how it’s written, and there’s no editing on it. It’s beautiful in its imperfections, right. I’m pretty much all about imperfections so that really stuck with me, and I just can’t decide if I should do the second book on the typewriter or if I should try a new format, because the book is about growth. So to me, if I stay with the typewriter, then the growth isn’t fully there. I just don’t want it to just be like, you know, written like a normal book, either. I don’t want it to be on my handwriting because my handwriting is a piece of shit.

Because this is essentially a diary, do you have any regrets showing so much of yourself to the world through this book?
Every fan that comes up to me, it’s the book. It used to be this movie, or that thing, or Shake It Up. Now it’s the book, and I’ve met so many people in pain from this book. So many people. The amount of people that I touch their hands and I can feel the pain, the sweat, the blood, the tears literally through them. They explain to me their story. And you know, it’s one horrendous story after another, but it makes us all connected in this way. There’s a really strong connection between two people that share the same idea of pain, and that is so much more worth all the movies I’ve done. So much more worth just a fun night with your friends where you watched my movie. These things really stay with people and I really, really hope that it actually does help change the perspective, the mind. Especially with the second book that I’m writing now, it’s really supposed to help kind of try and teach you as well as me, because I’m teaching myself in the book, how to be better mentally, how to be happier. Something that we all struggle with the most is probably trying to be actually happy and that’s a really big theme in the book. I really hope that when I release the second one too, instead of just horrendous stories, it’s ‘I’d read the first one. I read the second one and the second one has helped me so much in my life to be better and be happier person.’ That’s way better than any movie or any song you know, or any script.

There are some individuals mentioned in the book that you may not be close with anymore. Did you consider taking some pieces out of the new paperback edition?
It’s kind of like getting a tattoo from your ex. Some people want to take off that tattoo as soon as they break up. That was in my life at that time. That’s just how it is. Maybe I’ll get it taken off later. I think that’s more towards the side that I lean towards. There was definitely love once there.

You mention your sister Dani Thorne in your book as a sort of saving grace. Tell me about your relationship with her.
Dani and I are like twins that are like four and a half, almost five years apart. It’s really weird. When you hear us talk, you never know which one’s talking. Like, you could think I’m home because Dani’s downstairs or vice versa. When you can look at someone and no one has to do any talking, [it] feels like you’re mentally talking to each other, just without words. You’re just looking at each other and you just don’t really know what the other person is thinking. It’s just your kind of connection feeling that you can have with, you know, I don’t really even think you can have it with your very best friend. You can sometimes be like, ‘I know what you’re thinking,’ but it’s like a real language of communication that me and Dani can just have looking at each other. I just wouldn’t be where I am without her. I would not be a good person. I think without her it would take me a lot longer in my life to get to the point where I am right now mentally if I didn’t have her to kind of show me the better ropes. I also just got lucky because she’s…so much about accepting. Even when…someone tells you a bad story about themselves and you’re judging them, you can’t help the brain but judge them in that moment. After that moment has passed, I think there are so many things in your life that made you this way and every single one of them is okay and I’m accepting them for you. I’m gonna fuck with you for who you are, not for your past experiences or things that made you ‘you’ and I really learned that from her. When you talk to her..because she’s so sweet, like for instance in our group, no one’s allowed to make jokes about each other. That’s not a thing in our group. In some groups, guys be like getting at each other and then the girls be like randomly making a funny little knife comment and then all the other girls not in are frowned upon. It’s very you know, no one’s making jokes or being a jackass. It’s a very interesting group. People like to hang out with us I think literally because with Dani being such a hippie and me kind of backing that as well, like the aura of our group is so like ‘come here. Come here friend. You look like you might be in pain. Come get coddled.’

Tell me about your creative process while writing this book.
Funny enough, I was on set at the time filming Paradise City. Because I had just lost the other ones, now I had to completely start from scratch which totally fucked me. But also didn’t in the way that I was just like, ‘You know what, I’m on a deadline. I’m going to get this shit.’ I finished the book in two and a half weeks. I did it on set and, literally, walking around [with] my typewriter. It’s so funny. I’ve just like bringing it to rehearsal, putting it down on the bed, putting it on this place…it was so funny. I honestly couldn’t believe I actually got it done. Like in time. Because it was my first time using a typewriter. I’ve always loved the look of typewriters. I’ve always loved the vintage of it and the spiritual vintage of it. Not just the look, but like something actually being old and was used to tell messages over time, save people’s lives, or make people fall in love, or all these things that make a typewriter beautiful. My first time on that typewriter, I will tell you, like ‘Oh, this is so hard.’ Because of my dyslexia, you’ll see it in there. In the book, you saw it where I’m spelling something wrong, then I go back to the next. Spell it wrong again. I go back to the next. Now, I’ve almost spelled it right. It’s still raw, done with the typewriter. It’s not like you can delete, right? You can’t read, cut, re-paste. You have to completely take that thing out and start over. That’s what I loved about the imperfection of it. It forced me to be so open in this way. People make fun of me all the time for having dyslexia. I’ve been bullied since I was literally so little for it, and people still do it everywhere, all over social media, really throwing it in my face. This was a way to really force me to be this open and this vulnerable. I think that’s also the part that makes the book. It’s not just the words I’m writing that are so vulnerable, it’s the format I’m writing it in. I’m opening my arms up to get slashed, and I’m very much giving myself fully to you to be ridiculed, which I’ve done a lot in my life anyway… I say what I want to say. I don’t have a clean, publicist type of answers. When I’m answering the question, I’m really answering this question. That’s been hard for me too. I think that that definitely shows in the book as well. It’s just the book to me. It’s just all these different pages of vulnerability, just stuff in one book.

Whenever I’m done with the diary, and I set it down, I’m just done with it. I’m like, oh, like a weight was lifted off my shoulder. I feel like I got what I needed to say out and it’s there. Was that kind of how this book release felt for you?
Yes, definitely felt lighter, but I was also feeling scared because it’s really all in there. I know how the press [perceives] vulnerability, and I know how they can take your words that are meant to be so beautiful and touching and they can throw them in a really nasty way that doesn’t show any of the strength that you had in the book. I was worried about that, because obviously there’s molestation in there. There’s so many things in there for people to just bite onto and say, ‘This is my headline. I don’t really care [what she’s] going through to even write this thing. I’m just taking these words, and then these words from another chapter, and I’m just going to smash them into one headline that sounds bad.’ I was really worried about that…The book is definitely the thing I’m most proud of to date, ever that I’ve done, and to see other people respond to it, and for it to actually make an impression on them, something that they’ll remember for a long time. It’s like…I’m making my mark. We all want to leave our mark on the world before we leave, and this book helped me feel that way—that what I’m doing in life isn’t just for shits and giggles over here…It’s actually some weight to it.

Bella Thorne is set to star opposite Aaron Eckhart in the action thriller, “Rumble Through the Dark.”

“Rumble Through the Dark” is based on Michael Farris Smith’s novel, “The Fighter.” Smith adapted his novel into a screenplay, which will directed by Graham Phillips and Parker Phillips. Production wrapped this week in the Mississippi and Delta region, after being briefly shut down due to Hurricane Ida.

“Rumble Through the Dark” is set in the dark landscape of the Mississippi Delta where a bare knuckle cage fighter (Eckhart) seeks to repay his debts to a local mob boss in a final desperate attempt to salvage his family home. Thorne plays a carnival hustler who stumbles upon a murder that ultimately leads to a dark family connection.

“Bella is a fearless artist,” the directors said in a statement. “Watching the chemistry between her and Aaron Eckhart develop throughout the story has been one of the film’s greatest triumphs.”

Foresight Unlimited is handling sales. Cassian Elwes of Elevated is representing the film in the U.S., and will serve as a producer, along with Cleta Ellington, Mark Damon, Tamara Birkemore, Tate Taylor, John Norris and Jere Hausfater.

Thorne tells Variety that Elwes approached her with the script after they had worked together on Lionsgate’s “Habit” in 2021. She says she was attracted to the film because of the strong writing for her character.

“I look for female characters that really have something to do in the script. I love meat and bones for female characters,” Thorne tells Variety. “There haven’t been enough scripts written in Hollywood that really showcase females in a different light for decades.”

“Rumble Through the Dark” is the latest project for Thorne, who got her start on Disney Channel’s “Shake It Up,” and has evolved into a multi-hyphenate force with a huge social media presence and committed fanbase. Always working, Thorne recently starred in Amazon’s “Paradise City,” Netflix’s “The Babysitter” and Freeform’s “Famous In Love.”

Her latest film, “Time Is Up,” is out Friday. In the teen romance, directed by Elisa Amoruso, Thorne stars opposite her real-life fiancé, Italian musician, Benjamin Mascolo.

The actor, model, singer and author recently released her book, “The Life of a Wannabe Mogul,” which is a collection of poems that chronicle her personal struggles, relationships and wild-child lifestyle. Thorne said she wrote the book in two weeks, while filming on set.

“I lost my first two handwritten books on a flight, so it took me minute to comes to terms with that,” she laments. “But eventually, I started writing again, this time on a typewriter. I would literally walk around set with a huge typewriter.”

“It was important for me to write it on a typewriter, rather than going back to handwriting,” Thorne adds. “Handwriting is the truest form of your identity. Your DNA. I didn’t want to give all of myself.”

Thorne, whose personal life frequently makes headlines, says the inspiration for her book was showing the world who she really is.

“I was tired of people perceiving me as not myself,” Thorne explains. “I felt misunderstood, so I wanted to write something raw and authentic to show the public who I am on a silver platter.”

Thorne is repped by CAA and Thor Bradwell of Thirty Three Management.

“I fell in love with an Italian pop star so I’m basically Lizzie McGuire,” Bella Thorne joked on her Instagram on March 4th of this year, except she wasn’t really kidding — and now she’s marrying that Italian pop star, singer Benjamin Mascolo. The pair fell in love at Coachella — an appropriate start to a relationship categorized by artistic collaboration and creativity, with the couple’s new movie, Time Is Up, in theaters September 9, 2021.

In Time Is Up, Thorne, 23, and Mascolo, 28, play star-crossed lovers brought together by fate and nearly torn apart by an accident and a case of forgotten memory. “As always happens,” a synopsis reads, “life manages to weave events together in increasingly surprising and unexpected ways.”

To celebrate their engagement and the release of Time Is Up, Thorne — whose book The Life Of A Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray (Black Edition) is out September 7th — chatted with NYLON about meeting Mascolo, shooting the film together, and realizing he was the one for her.

How did you and Ben meet?
Ben and I met on Instagram, then had a quick lunch date. A few days later we fell in love at Coachella. One time, he compared our initial meeting to a UFO alien landing on earth, which is very on-brand for our relationship. I was super sad when I first met Ben, but he accepted me for everything that I was during that time. Meeting him was like a breath of fresh air.

When did you realize he was the one?
There was no singular moment where I thought, “Ben is the one for me.” Instead, our bond became stronger with time throughout our relationship, and we naturally formed that “you are the one for me” connection. What started as a hot and heavy love, then as confidant and sidekicks, then work partners and now fiancés. I believe it was all those moments of how our relationship continued to progress that I began to realize that he was the only one for me.

How did you handle being separated during quarantine?
Ben and I were apart for five months during quarantine. Looking back at it, it was a tough and scary time. There was a moment that I genuinely wondered if I was ever going to be able to see Ben again. Nevertheless, I tried to stay positive during those dark times and appreciated the little things in our relationship. The time apart ultimately made our love even stronger, knowing that if we could make it through the pandemic, we could make it through anything.

The time alone also gave me a chance to hone in on my craft and focus on myself, so most of the time, I tried to focus my attention on things I could do to better myself and my career.

What’s your favorite quality about Ben?
My favorite quality about Ben is that he fully listens to me and my feelings. He never makes me feel dumb, crazy, or in the wrong. He just listens to me and loves me. He allows me to be my worst self and loves me at my worst times. I do the same with him, which gives us both the confidence that we can make it through anything together.

What was shooting Time Is Up like as a couple?
I felt like portraying true love on screen was more effortless and romantic because we were together in real life. I got to fall in love with Ben all over again. All the butterflies and nerves you get when you first meet your crush came flooding back. It was like we were in the “honeymoon” stage of our relationship again.

Time Is Up is about true love prevailing against rough odds. Do you see your own story in the film?
I feel like a part of me connects to the character or storyline in every role I play. I think that’s why acting can be so challenging because if you cannot personally relate to the film, you won’t be able to deliver a good story.

When it came to filming Time Is Up, I did see my own story portrayed. I think it had to do with the raw emotion that Ben and I feel towards each other and the ability to reclaim our lives together.

Time Is Up will be nationally available on VOD and all digital platforms starting September 24, 2021.
