Bella Thorne says writing a novel with dyslexia is her biggest achievement

In the span of about three years, Bella Thorne has gone from Disney TV star to bonafide actress and beauty icon—and, um, she’s just 18. The Florida native—who’s also half Cuban—opened up to Fusion’s Alicia Menendez about her proudest accomplishments and learning to make it in Hollywood while staying true to herself. She also took questions from her adoring fans who call themselves “Bellarinas.”

Thorne is now starring alongside Justin Long, Kaley Cuoco, Anna Faris and Christina Applegate in 20th Century Fox’s Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip, which opens in theaters tomorrow.
