Assassination Nation star Bella Thorne is known for being outspoken, and according to a recent interview with Gay Times it hasn't necessarily served her well in the industry -- shocking! While millions of fans love Thorne's vulnerability on social media (over 18 million of them to be more precise), Hollywood has never been all that concerned with honesty. Thorne says that it's been harder for her to get roles since coming out as bisexual in 2016.
"There were a few places on the acting side that were very negative about it," Thorne told Gay Times. "There was someone who, right after I came out, cancelled my audition."
According to the former Disney star, homophobia in the industry is more insidious than up front. "It's not like anybody comes up to you and says, 'Well, you're gay so I'm not going to hire you.' I haven't had that."
"But you can just tell by the way that people act differently around you," said Thorne. "The way they treat you differently, the way that they look at you or the way that they tiptoe around certain subjects because they're walking on eggshells ... In this business, that behavior makes it all very obvious."
Thorne also spoke about bisexual erasure, claiming that "no-one understands bisexuality at all."
"If you fucked a guy once, you must be gay. Like, what? No. That's just being fluid," she explained. "It's not a gay or straight box, it's this middle in-between world that nobody can put in a box, which makes them so mad ... People are so mad that they can't put it in a box, can't explain it, and can't see how it works, that they hate on it."
Thorne is currently dating both YouTuber Tana Mongeau and rapper Mod Sun, and claims that no one "will really understand the bonds that I share with" her partners. "Yeah, we joke around about poly, but we aren't in the sense that we don't put a word, a box, or label too many things. It is what it is." Bitch she's Bella Thorne and apparently that's the only label she needs.
