Actress and singer Bella Thorne says she identifies as "pansexual" and opened up in a new interview about how she was able to overcome sexual abuse and more hardships to discover what makes her "most happy" in life.
At just 13 years old, Thorne danced her way to stardom as Cece Jones on the Disney Channel's hit, "Shake it Up."
Thorne, now 21, has since matured into a darker, grittier young women who is speaking openly about her struggles with self-acceptance, being bullied for her dyslexia and even sexual abuse in her new book, "Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray."
Being able to write and publish a book as a dyslexic person is "kind of what the series is about," she told ABC News' Juju Chang.
"How all this s*** that I really couldn't do, and I did it somehow," she said. "I couldn't read and I learned how to read from reading scripts."
