Actress Bella Thorne has a thing for roses

Guests stepping into the dining room of Bella Thorne’s Sherman Oaks home might find it hard to believe the actress once loathed pink; just about everything in the space is in various shades of the color, from the hot-pink walls to the pastel rose-hued pendant chair suspended from the ceiling.

I used to hate the color when I was younger,” said Thorne, 22, who gained fame in 2010 as co-star of the Disney Channel sitcom “Shake It Up.” “But as I got older I started not being so angry with pink all the time. It turns out I really do like it.

The actress and singer, who starred in the 2018 movie “Midnight Sun” and the Freeform network series “Famous in Love,” wanted to give each room of the 4,500-square-foot house its own identity.

After buying the home in 2016, she lived there for a couple of years; now she primarily uses it for parties and rents it out for photography shoots, music videos and events.

But spending time in the dining room reminds her of the crafting she did with her sister as children, coached by their mother; in this room the siblings have created yet more lavish pinkness together — the papery roses affixed to the walls, the chairs draped with fuchsia feather boas, the table hand-painted and studded with tiny pearl beads.

What led to the idea behind the pink room?
It was more about making the house have all themed rooms, each one being completely different. There is a TV room that has gold flecks over everything, so that’s the gold room. I wanted it to feel like every time you step into another room, you are entering a complete other world.

How did you do the wall of roses?
That’s how the idea for this room started. I’m obsessed with roses and I wanted a floral wall. We had to figure out how to do that besides attaching each flower to the wall with hot glue. So we put them all on Styrofoam piece by piece and then attached the Styrofoam to the wall. I put glitter on some of the roses as well.

Have you always been into crafting?
My mom is the queen of arts and crafts and she taught us how to hot glue; me and my sister always liked it and luckily we’re good at it. We realized it’s super plausible to do a lot of things in your house with your literal fingertips. We did pretty much everything in here ourselves.

Including the dining table and chairs?
We bought furniture from Ikea and just painted everything pink. This table also has white polka dots stenciled in, and I put feather boas everywhere.

Do you use the dining room much?
Actually, when we have friends over, we’re sort of “kitchen standers” — we stand around in the kitchen, eating and talking. We’ve never had dinner parties in here. From the beginning, we just had this idea of having an epic dining room. We didn’t think much about actually using it.

But at least it’s home to this dinosaur.
My sister loves dinosaurs and I wanted to get her a dope Christmas gift. I found this in a prop shop.

And you put a pink tutu on it.
Sure I did.

Mixing Passion With Business: Popular Star Bella Thorne Discusses Her New Weed Brand

At 22, Bella Thorne has done it all: artist, actress, musician, best-selling author, director and social media phenomenon (over 21 million followers!). Recently, she added another tag to her impressive list of accomplishments: cannabis entrepreneur. In October, the former Disney star teamed up with Glass House Group, a California-based vertically integrated cannabis and hemp company, to launch Forbidden Flowers, a new cannabis brand. For Thorne, it was the culmination of her long-time passion for cannabis as well as a desire to open another revenue stream for herself. So far, the budding business dynamo’s foray into the industry has been a smash success. Thorne kicked off the initial debut of Forbidden Flowers with a sold-out multi-week tour of retail locations across the Golden State that carry the brand.

But she’s not resting on her laurels. According to Thorne, there’s more to come: A new CBD brand is in the pipeline as well as a hemp line slated to open in new markets outside California next year. Brash and candid, Thorne shared her unfiltered thoughts on her new cannabis venture and how it stands apart from the clutter of other celebrity-minted weed brands.

This interview was edited for conciseness and clarity.

Iris Dorbian: What compelled you to launch a cannabis brand Forbidden Flowers? What were the motivating factors?

Bella Thorne: I have really wanted to get into the cannabis industry for a while now. I’ve been smoking weed for a good minute (laughs). When I was younger, I dealt heavily with anxiety and depression and weird eating habits and stomach problems. It was making me miserable. CBD oil and weed were the only things to help me. I don’t believe in pills. My other main reason was money. It’s another chapter, a step in the page of my mobilization.

Dorbian: How did you find out about Glass House Group?

Thorne: That was actually interesting. I’ve been trying different weeds from different places. I can’t smoke strong indoor weed. it hurts my throat too much. It’s sprayed. I only smoke outdoor grown weeds. I asked Glass House to work with me after going to their facilities. The managers treated their plants like babies. It literally needs love to grow.

Dorbian: There have been quite a few celebrities who have also launched their own cannabis lines recently. How does your brand Forbidden Flowers differ from the others?

Thorne: We go out of our way to be completely organic and we care about the flower which I think is a different step to take. We rather take our time rather than rushing it. If we sell out, then we have nothing to sell. We don’t just want to sell flower that’s not as good. We rather wait until our next batch is ready to be picked.

Dorbian: You have a massive amount of followers on social media. What has been their overall reaction to your new cannabis brand?

Thorne: It differentiates. Most of my fans love the idea of weed whether they smoke it or not because they understand it and the difference it makes. I do have younger fans and I understand if it freaks them out. I am of age and I don’t want people who are not of age to smoke it. I think that people—they see that I’m trying so hard. I’m in every little bit of aspect of the business, especially the creative part that’s so important.

Dorbian: What do you want prospective customers to know about your brand? Why should they buy it versus another brand?

Thorne: If you haven’t tried smoking marijuana, you should. I want to say there’s a chance in life for everything. Forbidden Flowers could be yours. I want to say follow us because we’re a brand that wants to deep dive in the medical benefits of the cannabis space. I want to say to people to open your f*** eyes because the world has changed because it’s not the “devil’s lettuce.”

Bella Thorne On Polyamory: “I Love Loving Two People At Once”

Bella Thorne recently opened up about the intricacies of having polyamorous relationships. In an interview with Cosmopolitan, the actress, singer, and director explained that while dating more than one person at once can be “a little difficult,” it can also lead to beautiful things. Thorne — who’s previously shared that she’s pansexual — says that successful polyamorous relationships ultimately hinge on the chemistry of the people involved.

If you’re gonna date a guy and a girl at the same time, those people have to really fuck with each other,” she said. “Or literally fuck with each other. You know what I’m saying? It’s like, it really depends on finding the right mesh of two people.”

If it works, you can spend a weekend with two people and you’re all hanging out and having fun and smoking, and like, sharing stories up late at night,” Thorne continued. “Kind of having fun, acting like children in that way. It’s a really fun experience, and I have been able to capture that a couple times, and I just love that idea. I love loving two people at once. I love sharing stories with three people in one room. So, I’m always trying to find ways to make it work because I think it really would make me happy.

The Famous In Love actress told Cosmo she’s only dating singer Benjamin Mascolo right now, but she was seeing both rapper Mod Sun and YouTuber Tana Mongeau in 2017 and 2018, Billboard reports.

A lot of my partners start out like ‘what?,’” Thorne told Cosmo. “And I’m like, ‘Bro, this is who I am.’ So, you’re either down or you’re not down and I totally understand if you’re not down. At this point in my life, I want to find what makes me the happiest, and that is the mission I am on. If you don’t want to be on that mission with me, then okay, I totally understand. If it will hurt you too much, then we’re not right for each other at this moment in my life because this is what I’m looking for.

Thorne added that once she explains how fulfilling and lovely polyamorous relationships can be, people often begin to perceive them differently.

A lot of people are actually down and it totally changes their mind. At first they’re like, gasp, ‘How do you even do that?’” she said. “And then we talk it through and they’re like, ‘Wow, that actually sounds kind of beautiful.’
