In an interview with Maxim, actress Bella Thorne talked about her coming out earlier this year.

Thorne, 19, came out as bisexual in August.

After posting an image of herself on Snapchat kissing another woman, identified by The Huffington Post as Thorne's older brother's ex-girlfriend Bella Pendergast, a follower on Twitter asked, “Are you bisexual?” Thorne answered, “Yes” and reposted the tweet.

Later she thanked followers for their support: “Aww thank you for all the accepting tweets from everyone. I love you guys,” she tweeted with three heart emoticons.

Thorne told Maxim that Hollywood can be hard “for us.”

“I have already had people talk shit to me,” Thorne said. “And it comes from people in the industry, not even fans. I've had studios tell me my image is too 'out there,' hinting at it but not really saying it.”

On her decision to come out, she said: “I didn't even think about it. A fan on Twitter asked me, and I'm super open about it. So I just said, 'Yeah!'”

Thorne is best known for playing CeCe Jones on the Disney Channel's Shake It Up.
