Bella Thorne on the April 2018 Cover of Shape Magazine

Bella Thorne is gearing up for the release of her new film 'Midnight Sun' at the end of the month and she is on the April 2018 cover of Shape magazine. On the cover which was shot by Ben Watts, Bella is wearing a SELF-PORTRAIT SPRING 2018 stripe crop top with the matching pants. In the issue, she talks staying body positive, health goals and more. Continue below to read excerpts from her interview and to see images from her fashion spread.  For more on Bella's feature, visit and pick up a copy on newsstand. 

On working out:
I was filming Midnight Sun in Canada at the beginning of 2017 for four months. It was 20 degrees below zero out, and we were shooting really heavy material all night. I also did all my own stunts. It made me not want to work out. Then I started another project and got lazy. But I recently decided it's time to go back to the gym. I get stressed and antsy when I don't go. I won't do cardio—because it makes me lose too much weight, and my boobs are always the first thing to go—but I will do a lot of weight lifting, boxing, Pilates, and hot yoga.

On sleeping:
Sleep is so important, and yet I keep skipping it. I can never catch up. The problem is that my creative hours are from 9 p.m. to 3:30 a.m., and then I often need to get up for work at 4:30. By the time I get home—especially if I've been filming an intense scene or had coffee—I'm jittery and exhausted. I'm lucky that I have one of those brains that always allows me to take more on. But while it makes for a great work ethic, it gets me in trouble. When I'm overtired, my psoriasis and acne are bad, I get migraines and sore eyes, I forget my lines, and my hands shake a lot. Those are tells that I need some sleep. I'm not a believer in sleeping pills, so I need to start mentally winding down earlier so I can calm and ease my mind.

On staying body positive:
Although I'm insecure about my education, I'm generally confident about my body. Still, sometimes I wake up and don't like what I see, so I take a moment and try to get back to happy Bella by remembering where I came from: I grew up in a bikini on the beach, and I'm comfortable in my skin. In fact, one of my proudest accomplishments was taking nude photos for a magazine recently [GQ Mexico, which honored Bella for her Latin heritage]. It was a nice learning experience for me as a woman. I've never been in front of a group of people completely naked. It would make a lot of people uncomfortable, but for me the issue was, I can be a feminist and show skin. You'd never tell a guy not to take off his shirt, would you?
