Director Sean Baker Denies He's Making an OnlyFans Movie with Bella Thorne

Sean Baker, the acclaimed director of the movie The Florida Project, has denied that he is working with Bella Thorne on a movie about her time on OnlyFans.

When she announced that she was joining the subscription-based social media platform, Bella told Paper Magazine that she was working with Sean on a film about the website.

Bella said that she and Sean share “the same vision of the movie being a conversation starter for many important topics.”

Now, Sean is denying that he ever committed to working with Bella on a movie and says they only had a discussion about a possible collaboration.

“I would like to make it clear that the news of me making a film (documentary or fiction narrative) about OnlyFans and using Bella Thorne as research is false. I’m NOT attached to this project. I’m actually in development on two features that I’ve put years of research and love in to and neither of these films have anything to do with Ms. Thorne or OnlyFans,” he told the Los Angeles Times.

Sean‘s statement was released after Bella received backlash for her use of OnlyFans. Fans even blamed her for the website instating new policies that will negatively affect content creators.

“Earlier this month I had a conversation with Ms. Thorne and discussed a possible collaboration in the far future that would focus on her life and the circumstances leading to her joining OnlyFans,” Sean added. “On that call, I advised her team to consult with sex workers and address the way she went about this as to NOT hurt the sex work industry. This has been the extent of my involvement.”

In just one week on the website, Bella made a massive amount, which is probably more than most creators will see in their lifetimes.
