Bella Thorne Says She's Been 'Uncomfortable' Filming Nude Scenes with Certain Directors

Bella Thorne is opening up about feeling uncomfortable while filming nude scenes.

The 23-year-old actress told Page Six that she hasn’t always felt comfortable taking her clothes off on set.

“I want to be stronger, right, and when I’m on set doing these scenes, I’m very, very uncomfortable,” Bella explained. “I’m always working through my uncomfortableness because I want to do it, especially if it’s important for the character.”

“If this is a thing that needs to be in there, it needs to be in there,” she said. “I’m a writer myself so I understand.”

However, Bella added that there are some people who “just want to get girls naked on camera.”

“You’ve got to watch out for those movies,” she said, “but when it’s needed for the character … yeah, it makes me feel uncomfortable.”

Bella also shared that her discomfort doesn’t depend on having the gender of her director and has more to do with their delivery and tone.

“I’ve actually worked with female directors and I’ve had an amazing time with some female directors and, of course, there have been some female directors that have made me uncomfortable,” she said. “It’s not that it’s just a man that’s making me uncomfortable on the set. It’s really more of how the situation is handled from start to finish.”

“If someone’s like, ‘Yeah, you’re supposed to take your shirt off now. You read the script, right?’ The expectation. Even if you’re like, ‘Yeah, I read the script and yes I know,’ it’s the way that it’s put in certain sets,” she continued.

Bella also recognized that being a director is a very difficult job and that being on set can be challenging.

“They don’t know what they’re saying is making you feel a certain way. It’s not that you’re always working with a really crude person that just wants to make you feel bad on set. It’s a very small percent of the time,” the ‘Shake It’ singer said.

“It’s more that people make mistakes and set’s running fast, people are talking and you’re not paying attention to the weight of your words so much. Things get misconstrued.”

Bella also recently opened up about being “pitted against” her former co-star Zendaya .
