Bella Thorne leads by example
Bella Thorne modelled nude for a GQ Mexico cover photo shoot, and she says that she asked for the photos to be completely untouched by photoshop. In the spread with a title that roughly translates to “the beginning of maturity”, the 19-year-old model is seen taking off her layers of clothing around a grand mansion.
Posting the photograph onto her Instagram following the shoot, Bella wrote, “Lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That’s natural and that’s human. You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don’t see what everyone else sees. Know that it’s completely normal to feel insecure and it’s accepted. honestly I wish everyone talked more about their insecurities so more people in the world could know they aren't alone. That it’s ok (sic).”
TheSun.co.uk reports that she went on to explain, “If they show my acne scars or a wrinkle in my forehead or my teeth aren’t perfectly white, people will look at the photo and say ‘no she’s not perfect’,” she added. “And usually most people don’t want the public trashing and I get it. But f*** it I’m here to tell you that’s right I’m not F***ING PERFECT. I’M A HUMAN BEING AND I’M REAL. So hip hop you’re a**es over the fence and GET OVER IT (sic).”
