In an interview with Maxim,
actress Bella Thorne talked about her coming out earlier this year.
Thorne, 19, came out as bisexual in
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.
