Bella Thorne Poses Nude In Un-Retouched Photo To Prove She’s ‘Not Really Perfect.’
The 19-year-old actress is seen flaunting her lithe physique while sitting on a chair completely naked for the shot, with her arm placed over her chest to protect her modesty. While it seemed there was little to fault about the picture, Bella took to Instagram to tell fans that she sees a different image as she is also insecure about her appearance.
To take it up a notch, Thorne says she asked the magazine to post the photo without retouching — and then shared the sultry shot on Instagram Thursday night, adding a passionate caption about the cause.
When actress/anti slut-shaming crusader Bella Thorne recently posed nude for a spread in GQ Mexico, she requested that the photos not be retouched. Sure, this might not seem like a “brave” move from someone who looks like Bella Thorne. But the 19-year-old actress took to Instagram to explain why learning to accept your body as it is can be hard, no matter what you look like.
“You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don’t see what everyone else sees,” Thorne wrote on Instagram. “Know that it’s completely normal to feel insecure and it’s accepted.”
Here’s the photo:
I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That's natural & that's human. You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime someone looks in the mirror they simply don't see what everyone else sees. Know that it's completely normal to feel insecure and it's accepted. honestly I wish everyone talked more about their insecurities so more people in the world could know they aren't alone. That it's ok. As a public persona you know naturally that everytime you shoot with a magazine there is always small retouching. Cuz yeah if they show my acne scars or a wrinkle in my forehead or my teeth aren't perfectly white, people will look at the photo and say no she's not perfect and usually most people don't want the public trashing and I get it, But fuck it I'm here to tell you that's right I'm not FUCKING PERFECT. IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your asses over the fence and GET OVER IT. @gqmexico
