Don’t approach Bella Thorne with a racy teen image of her.
The 25-year-old actress told The Hollywood Reporter about meeting an autograph seeker at the Sundance Film Festival who tried to get her to sign provocative photos of herself.
“I normally don’t tell them off but they offended me. It was this guy shoving photos in front of me, and I looked away for a second, then back, and there was a photo of me from my GQ magazine cover,” Thorne explained. “It’s super sexy, my butt is out, I’m wearing lingerie, and I’m topless. When I said I wouldn’t sign it, he took it away and then returned it to me. ‘No, I’m not signing that,’ I said.
Thorne claims the man then handed her another sexy image to sign.
“I didn’t care for it. “It was impolite,” she said. “There was some stuff from a Candies campaign I did when I was 16, and it was clear that he wanted me to sign things that were deemed sexy and even underage, and I was like, ‘Give me something else.'”
“Aren’t they all sexy?” she said the autograph seeker asked.
“No, enough already. “But I understand; they have to make money, and everyone has a job, so I understand,” Thorne said. “It was just that I was under the age of 18, and it was inappropriate.”
Thorne, who received the Pornhub Vision Award in 2019 for the directorial debut of her adult film, “Her & Him,” is a former Disney child star who now says she would reconsider taking sexy pictures as a teen.
“You also can’t waste time trying to undo these moments or moments when you were too sexy, or thinking that being a woman is only this or that,” she told THR.
