Bella Thorne says that she has faced discrimination since coming out as bisexual.
Bella confirmed her sexuality earlier this year. A fan on Twitter asked whether Bella was bi. The actress replied simply: “Yeah.” Bella gave an honest answer and, she explains, she “didn’t even think about it.”
However, Bella has received some backlash over the admission. She claims it’s costing her acting work. Movie studios are reluctant to hire her now that they know her sexuality.
The former Disney star told Maxim Magazine about life after coming out.
“It is hard in this business for us. It really is,” Bella admitted. “I have already had people talk s**t to me.”
Who is giving Bella a hard time about being in relationships with men as well as women?
Bella continues: “It comes from people in the industry, not even fans.”
How has revealing her private life affected her career? Bella admits, sadly, it has affected her professional life in a negative way.
“I’ve had studios tell me my image is too ‘out there,’” she adds. “Hinting at it but not really saying it.”
But Bella is not going to change for anyone! “People tell me all the time about my social media and my Snapchat,” she admits. “But I’m not going to change myself for this business, and I’m not going to change myself for anyone else.”
