Bella Thorne Wants You To Know She Doesn't GAF If You Think She's 'Too Edgy'
Through her breakup from boyfriend Gregg Sulkin and her Snapchat post announcing her bisexuality, Bella Thorne's diehard fans have always supported her.
Unfortunately for the former Disney Channel star, the greater chorus of internet haters isn't always as accommodating to young stars attempting to live authentically.
Bella appears in the November 2016 issue of Playboy and, in a No Filter segment shared on the magazine's website, insists the pressure to adhere to others' expectations can be pretty outrageous.
Bella, who posed in full satiny glory in a jacket by Catherine Fulmer and blue high-waisted pants by Squaresville vintage, isn't heading for a social media blackout anytime soon, though she admits places like Instagram are breeding grounds for intense criticism.
The "Amityville: The Awakening" actress said,
At just 19 years old, Bella has plenty of growing and getting to know herself left to do, so avoiding the influence and toxic opinions of virtual strangers remains a priority to the Florida native.
Bells is also hyper-aware of the sexual shame that often plagues young actresses (especially those whose careers were founded in the shadow of two cartoon mouse ears) after they've grown up.
Honestly, you don't have to tell me twice, Bell.
