‘I love skin on me, girls and guys!’ Bella Thorne blasts those who try to shame her into covering up as she strips down for Playboy
Haters better back up as this star has no plans to change for anyone whether that be her fans, her peers of even Hollywood execs.
Bella Thorne has gone from tween star to one of the industries most untamed figures almost overnight – and she has no plans to tone it down.
The 19-year-old practiced what she preached in a steamy shoot for Playboy Magazine saying she will not bow down to body-shamers who lambaste her for being Sєxy.
The DUFF star told the iconic publication’s No Filter section – which highlights women making waves in entertainment – that many people around her do not see her for what she is.
People, she told the magazine, do not want to get to know the real you: ‘For me, that means people are constantly trying to change me, every second of the day, especially on social media.
‘I’m not fed up with social media – I understand it – but people like to comment on how my image is too edgy, that *I’m* too edgy, and on how they wish I looked. It’s a lot of ”do this, don’t do that.”
‘To them I say, f**k off. There’s this effort to try to shame a woman’s Sєxiness by pulling a cover over it, but I’m a woman who loves skin. I love skin on me, I love skin on girls, I love skin on guys.
‘If you’re confident enough to show off your body, you should. Be confident. It can be difficult to get yourself to focus on you all the time, especially when you’re trying to transition into who you really are, but I’m not going to change for anybody else. I love staying true to me.’
While the new Playboy has done away of ɴuᴅᴇs, Bella still showed off plenty of that skin she is so proud of, forgoing a top underneath her Catherine Fulmer Bowie jacket which she wore with skinтιԍнт Lycra vintage pants.
Bella has recently felt a backlash with those around her feeling her unfiltered ways are too out there.
The star told Maxim recently that since revealing she is biSєxual – she currently dates male actor Tyler Posey – that Hollywood power players have been less than impressed with her.
The teen said: ‘It is hard in this business for us [referring to LBGTQ community]. It really is. I have already had people talk s**t to me.
‘And it comes from people in the industry, not even fans. I’ve had studios tell me my image is too ‘out there,’ hinting at it but not really saying it.’
Others have expressed concern about her oversharing approach on social media.
‘People tell me all the time about my social media and my Snapchat, but I’m not going to change myself for this business, and I’m not going to change myself for anyone else.’
