However, the Hollywood star claims that she’s never actually dated a girl, and isn’t quite sure how to tell when a girl is interested in her.
Like most Hollywood stars, it’s obvious that Bella has had some surgical interventions over the years. It is apparent that in the bid to get herself mature features, the former Shake It Up! star settled for plastic surgeries. While some other stars prefer experimenting with piercings and tattoos, Bella seems to be playing with her look as she’s gone blonder, layered on bold liners, and tried out one or two cool statement lips.
Asides having her natural blonde locks dyed auburn, there are speculations that Bella has undergone cosmetic procedures such as lip fillers, dermal fillers, and breast augmentation. In recent years, she has been noticed with a much more refined nose and very plump lips. While her nasal bridge has finer lines and is definitely thinner, her lips are fuller and some also say her cheekbones are now higher. In addition, it is rumored she’s had a boob job and her body is curvier, although some say that is probably a result of her new fitness routine.
Though Thorne hasn’t admitted undergoing any plastic surgery procedure or plans, these are changes we cannot deem natural. Moreover, we do know she believes that as a female, her self-esteem is often affected by society’s inclination to judge women solely based on their physical appearance.
