Bella Thorne on finding romance: ‘I want to actually date a girl’

Bella Thorne is stripping away her clean-cut Disney image.

The former child star recreated the iconic 1961 photoshoot featuring a nude Marilyn Monroe for Harper's BAZAAR.

The 19-year-old also kept things real when it came to discussing her sexuality.

Ive done other stuff with girls, but I want to actually date a girl, explained the actress. I cant tell if a girl is hitting on me or she just wants to be friends. And I dont want to flirt with a girl if she thinks Im just being her friend. What if I kiss a girl and shes like, Oh, Im just your friend dude, I cant believe you just crossed that boundary. Im confused on what they want from me.


Thorne previously came out as bisexual in 2016 after she was spotted by fans kissing her brothers ex-girlfriend on Snapchat. The star insisted that shes currently flying solo.

Im single as fk. I could not be more single, she said to the fashion magazine. This is the longest Ive been super single There are so many unwritten rules about dating which I dont like. Id rather be super faithful and give my all to one person. I dont like having by phone blown up by a bunch of different guys where I dont really know where I stand with any of them. It sucks.

This is how I sleep at night...including the wig @harpersbazaarus #humpday

Throne also dished on how her public image makes it difficult to develop a relationship privately.


Even if Im not dating somebody, even if were just seen hanging out, he must be my boyfriend and were moving in and holy st were getting married I want to go ice skating and I want to ride dirt bikes or do something dope as a date, but I cant, she said. Because if I step outside, hes my boyfriend all of a sudden. So its like, Oh fk, well, we can only go to your house or mine, we cant leave the house.
