After an audition when she was 10 years old, Bella Thorne was accused of “flirting with him” and “making him incredibly uncomfortable.”
In Tuesday’s episode of the “High Low” podcast, the actress told Emily Ratajkowski that she “still goes back” to that interaction “every day” and that it drives her “crazy.”
Thorne, who is now 25 years old, added, “I… am almost trying to find fault in myself. Like, ‘What did you do, Bella? What did you do? You caused him to feel this way.
At age 10, the former Disney Channel star reminded herself that she was “not the problem.”
She continued, “I don’t give a f–k what the f–k I said.” “I don’t care if I said, “Right now, eat my p—y. I was a ten-year-old boy. Why would you ever believe [I was flirting]?
Additionally, you are in a director session and cannot speak or act. You do the scene, say hi, and then exit. There is no time for someone to sit on your lap or make you uneasy.
Ratajkowski, 31, instructed the “Shake It Up” alum to “forgive” herself because she was a “f–king kid,” adding that she hopes the unnamed director “rots in hell.”
The model continued, “I don’t believe there is a more messed up story of Hollywood and pedophilia and the sexualization of minors.”
Ratajkowski also described an uncomfortable interaction she had with her agency when she was 16 years old.
“They pointed to my photo, and I was with a friend who was also modeling at the time for the same agency; they said, ‘This face. This demonstrates that this chick is fucked. You must teach Emily a lesson about this,'” the “Gone Girl” star recalled.
She stated, “I remember being flattered, ashamed, and appalled, and now, of course, looking back, that is so messed up that they said that.”
Ratajkowski described her and Thorne’s experiences as “the reality of being a young woman in the industry” in her 2021 book, “My Body.”
Thorne explained later in the podcast how she was nearly fired from Disney for wearing a bikini and body chain to the beach. The developer of OnlyFans also refuted reports that she was abusing heavy drugs throughout her acne troubles.
