Bella Thorne isn’t one to lie. In fact, the former Disney child star lives her life in the open. From sex-infused music videos to her tell-all memoir, “The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray,” the 23-year-old calls honesty “the strongest form of currency.”

In her conversation with Variety’s Marc Malkin, Thorne discusses owning her pansexuality, describes her dream of one day opening her own Hollywood studio, and talks the stylistic inspirations behind her new music video for her single ‘Phantom’ which include "Shape of Water," David Lynch, and "The Twilight Zone."
