Although it seemed like they were best friends on the screen, Zendaya and Bella Thorne did not get along while they were filming Shake It Up. Yep, the actress just opened up about why she and her costar weren’t friends when cameras stopped rolling, and it turns out, Disney pinned them against one another.

“We had to deal with that so much on Shake It Up,” Thorne told Us Weekly. “It’s like we said [in] a couple interviews when we were younger, how we explained how in the first season we weren’t friends and it took us those other two seasons of becoming so close. [It was hard] not having someone pitted against you [before] and then all of a sudden, now everyone is pitting you against each other. That fed into our heads. It made us not [be] friends in that first season.”

She previously explained in another interview, “Zendaya and I were put in a very unfortunate position where we were kind of forced to compete against each other, which made the whole first season of the show just very awkward for us. We wanted to love each other, but yet we were constantly being put against each other. It was, ‘Who’s better at this?’ and ‘Who’s better at that?’”

In the end, however, they were able to put their differences aside.
