Bella Thorne refused to sign 'inappropriate' topless photos for fan

Bella Thorne refused to sign 'inappropriate' topless photos for fan

Bella Thorne has opened up about an inappropriate encounter which saw a male fan ask her to sign topless photos.

Actress Bella Thorne has opened up about a disagreement with a male fan after he asked her to autograph ‘inappropriate’ topless photos of the former Disney Channel star.

Bella recently appeared at this year’s Sundance Film Festival in support of her upcoming sci-fi film Divinity. At one stage, the actress was swarmed by fans asking her to sign various images of her. Things escalated though when one male held out what Bella described as “inappropriate” images, with one image being taken when she was just sixteen years old.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Bella explained that she didn’t mind signing photos but confessed that she “did tell someone off yesterday.” Bella said, “I normally don’t tell them off but they offended me. It was this guy and he was shoving photos in front of me and I looked away for a second and looked back and there was a photo of me from my GQ magazine cover. It’s super sexy and my butt is out and I’m wearing lingerie and I’m topless. I said I wouldn’t sign that and he took it away and then put it back in front of me again.”

“I said, ‘No, I’m not signing that.’ He pulled out another photo of a magazine with another sexy image,” she continued. “He was like, ‘Come on, Bella. Sign it for me.’ I didn’t like it. It was inappropriate. There was some stuff there from a Candies campaign that I did when I was 16 and it was clear that he wanted me to sign things that were viewed as sexy and even underage and I was like, ‘Give me something else.’ He said, ‘Aren’t they all sexy?’ No, enough is enough. But I get it, they have to make money and everyone has a job so I get that. It was just that I was under 18 and it’s inappropriate.”

The actress was then asked if she regretted the images. “I wouldn’t do that now,” she said. “You also can’t spend your time trying to take back these moments or moments that you were too sexy or think that being a woman is only this or that. That’s what my other short [film] addresses, it’s about growing up and being told from a very young age or by experiences that life as a woman means that people are either going to take something from you or you’re going to give it to them. It’s not always going to be your choice. And how do you deal with that?”

Divinity is set to release later this year.
