She's been in the business for quite some time now, yet it looks like Bella Thorne has her sights set up real high when it comes to her Hollywood career. Even though she's stared in a number of films and television shows such as Shake It Up and Big Love, the 18-year-old Florida native says that she is hoping to one day direct, too.
The actress, who can currently be heard voicing the tough-talking Cora in the new animated film Ratchet and Clank (based on the long-running video game series of the same name), says that unlike other actresses, she's never in her trailer whenever she's filming new projects. Instead, she's also behind her director, taking notes.
"My goal was to have my first self-directed short film premiere at South By Southwest next year and hopefully some other festivals," Thorne told Enstars. "I love the creative process. One of the unfortunate things about this film was this character was already created when I came in and stepped foot inside her. So that was fun and you know, interesting."
She added, "But I would love to do some more live action animation, where actually get to go behind the scenes and really go and literally create this character, because anything behind the scenes, to me, is just so cool."

Considering the fact that the flame-haired beauty is juggling a few projects at a time (which also includes her upcoming backpack and shoe line), Thorne says that she that she likes to stay organized the same way we all do: with her phone. What's more, she also puts her list of things she wants to accomplish (along with directing) on her phone, too.
Thorne explained, "You know, I have a goals list that I just started on my phone, which is pretty cool. And I'm just trying to do everything. I make personal time for myself when I'm on sets, which is good. So like, I'll be on set, but then I'll have a buddy come by and spend time with me while I'm on set. So that's kind of how I balance my personal relationships a bit more. But yeah I just want to do everything, but more directing and writing, specifically."
Ratchet and Clank is out in theaters now.
