Bella Thorne

Gaining fame by shaking things up may not be a bad thing in Bella Thorne's case. The actress, singer, model and dancer became a national presence after starring in the Disney TV show, Shake It Up. Thorne's renaissance-girl lifestyle is even more impressive when considering her admitted troubles with dyslexia, something she helped overcome by reading cereal box labels. The young actress was born in Pembroke, Florida on Oct 8, 1997.
