Disney Star Bridgit Mendler Isn't Interested In Pushing Boundaries: 'It's Just Not Me'

She recently transitioned from Disney's "Good Luck Charlie" to the NBC sitcom "Undateable," but 22-year old Bridgit Mendler isn't planning on veering too far from her G-rated roots.

While the star admits her new show "isn't for her younger fans," Mendler shook her head when asked by HuffPost Live if she planned to use shock tactics to "prove she isn't a kid anymore" like other former Disney stars.

"Whenever people say 'Oh, you don't have anything tainting or tarnishing on your history' -- I don't know, it's just not in my nature," she answered.

Mendler revealed that she's been offered "opportunities to do things that push the boundaries more," but those haven't been of interest.

"It's just not me," she affirmed. "I've kind of just been going off my gut and what feels right."

With "Undatable" being an undeniable departure from her past Disney show, she's "hoping this is the right move and that people feel comfortable with it."

"I can't judge anyone else's choices because I'm just going off what feels right for me," she added.

CORRECTION: This article previously implied that Mendler's big role prior to "Undateable" was on "Wizards of Waverly Place."
