Bella Thorne "Cried Every Night for Months" Over Acne Problems
Bella Thorne is the beautiful, multitalented Bella Thorne—she doesn't have a care in the world, right?
Turns out the 18-year-old has plenty of things to stress her out, most notably her persistent dermatitis. "I cried every night for months," she tells I Am That Girl's Emily Greener inside InStyle's May issue, now available on newsstands and for digital download. "It sounds silly to say that I cared so much about my face, but when you're a young girl, it takes a toll on your self-esteem. It's unbelievable how people looked at me differently because I had pimples. I'm still self-conscious about it."
Still, she learned an effective coping mechanism: laughter. "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," the actress says. "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."
