Bella Thorne Opens Up About Finding Her Identity: 'I Was Just a Puppet'
Bella Thorne looks stunning while recreating an iconic Marilyn Monroe photo for a shoot with Harper’s Bazaar.
Here’s what the 19-year-old actress had to share with the mag:
On finding her true identity: “People will ask me, ‘Who are you now?’ But this is who I’ve really been—you just didn’t see me before. I was just a puppet. I wasn’t allowed to make my own decisions or think for myself in any way.”
On her relationship status: “I’m single as f**k. I could not be more single. This is the longest I’ve been super single…There are so many unwritten rules about dating which I don’t like. I’d rather be super faithful and give my all to one person. I don’t like having my phone blown up by a bunch of different guys where I don’t really know where I stand with any of them. It sucks.”
On experimenting with her sexuality: “I’ve done other stuff with girls, but I want to actually date a girl. I can’t tell if a girl is hitting on me or she just wants to be friends. And I don’t want to flirt with a girl if she thinks I’m just being her friend. What if I kiss a girl and she’s like, ‘Oh, I’m just your friend dude, I can’t believe you just crossed that boundary.’ I’m confused on what they want from me.”
