Thorne, best known for playing CeCe Jones on Disney Channel's "Shake It Up," will soon be seen on the big-screen in "Blended," the upcoming comedy about a bad blind date that blossoms into true romance. "Blended" stars Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore, the winners of a combined total of eight Movie Awards statuettes, for their work in "The Wedding Singer" and "50 First Dates."
It's early days yet, but maybe — just maybe — some of that Movie Awards magic rubbed off on Thorne. If nothing else, the young actress has her sights set on a Movie Awards category she hopes to one day dominate.
"The Best Kiss award," she told MTV's Josh Horowitz with a big grin. "I love that one. It's my favorite!"
Thorne even has her eye on one of this year's Best Shirtless Performance nominees as her future kissing partner: "The Wolf of Wall Street" actor Leonardo DiCaprio.
"I love Leonardo DiCaprio," she said. "When I meet him for the first time, I'm going to be like, 'Oh, thank goodness we've finally met, because now I don't have to plan the wedding alone!'"
That forward declaration aside, Thorne ought to start planning how to win the Best Kiss award now — and she doesn't need to look any further for advice than Sandler and Barrymore, who previously scored a Best Kiss award of their own for their rain-soaked "50 First Dates" make-out moment.
"It does so much for the kiss," Sandler said of how rainstorms affect smooch scenes. "It tightens up the body. You feel chilly. You're cold. You're tight. Your nipples are way out there."
"Yeah," Barrymore added, "mine too!"
Okay, that last part is a little, ah, out there. Otherwise, there you have it, Thorne: Leonardo DiCaprio, in the rain — a few years from now and that Golden Popcorn could be yours!
