I guess Bella Thorne has a new movie coming out, and as far as I can tell, it’s a real movie and not just a feature-length Snapchat video of her dancing in her underwear. (Too bad.) It’s got a poster and a trailer and everything, and apparently a premiere in Rome. Anyway, that’s great for Bella, I guess, but personally, I’m way more interested in the tongue action and red carpet cleavage. Here’s hoping there’s a sequel.

In January 2018, Thorne wrote on Instagram that she had been physically and sexually abused as a child, “from the day I can remember till I was 14”.

In 2020, Thorne competed as “Swan” in the third season of The Masked Singer. She was eliminated on her second appearance. She also starred alongside Jake Manley in the heist-thriller Infamous which was released on June 12, 2020. She received praise for her performance, with critic Nick Allen states that she had “the classically great presence of someone like Sandra Bullock, but with her own scraggly edge … Thorne dominates numerous scenes that catapult her character from clout-hungry wannabe to gun-selfie superstar.”
In August 2020, Thorne joined OnlyFans and became the first person to earn $1 million in the first 24 hours of joining the platform. She earned $2 million in less than a week. Her activities on OnlyFans sparked controversy after she offered $200 pay-per-view photos she claimed were “naked”, but the photos were actually of her wearing lingerie, leading to a slew of chargebacks and new restrictions that limited the amount that sex workers on the platform could charge and reduced payouts to creators to monthly rather than weekly. However, OnlyFans denied the changes were related to Thorne. Thorne claimed she created an account as research for a role in an upcoming film with Sean Baker, which Baker denied. She also claimed that money made through the page would be used to fund her production company and distributed to worthy charitable causes.
In November 2020, she released the song “Lonely” as well as a music video for the song.
Thorne is set to star and serve as an executive producer on the film Habit, which is directed by Janell Shirtcliff, Chick Fight directed by Paul Leyden, Leave Not One Alive opposite Melissa Leo, directed by Jordan Galland, and The Trainer directed by Tony Kaye.
In addition to her acting and singing careers, Thorne is also a published writer. In 2014, she wrote Autumn Falls, the first in a series of three young adult novels – the other two being Autumn’s Kiss (2015) and Autumn’s Wish (2016) – about a teenage girl who navigates through the pitfalls of adolescence with help from her diary, which may have links to the supernatural.
In July 2019, Rare Bird Books published The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray Vol. 1, a book of Thorne’s autobiographical poetry.
Thorne is recognized for holding a controversial public image. While working on Disney, she stated that she felt restricted, and that “I wish I would have been true to myself,” and that “After Disney, I had the opportunity to find my true self and that is reflected in all my work from acting, producing, directing, and writing. I have more artistic freedom to continue to express myself.”
Thorne has appeared in over 30 commercials, including Neutrogena and Texas Instruments. Her advertising campaigns include Guess Jeans, Tommy Hilfiger, J.Lo Girls, Candie’s, Ralph Lauren, Gap and Diesel. She has been on the magazine covers of US’s Shape, Seventeen, Teen Vogue, Latina and Gay Times, UK’s Company; Indonesia’s Marie Claire and CosmoGirl; Canada’s Elle and Mexico’s Glamour and GQ. She has appeared in music videos for Liam Payne‘s “Bedroom Floor“, Bhad Bhabie‘s “Trust Me” and Logan Paul‘s “Outta My Head”.
Thorne is a supporter of the Humane Society, the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, and The Nomad Organization, which provides education, food and medical supplies to children in Africa. She also joined PETA in encouraging people to boycott and protest SeaWorld, acknowledging that as a child she appeared in a commercial for the theme park.
Thorne dated Tristan Klier, then a student, in November 2011, until 2014. She dated English actor Gregg Sulkin from 2015 to August 2016. Shortly after the breakup, she came out as bisexual. In 2017, she dated emo rapper Lil Peep for a short period and was in a relationship with musician Blackbear in August that same year. She had a polyamorous relationship with musician Mod Sun and media personality Tana Mongeau, dating the latter from September 2017 to February 2019 and Mod Sun until April 2019. Since April 2019, she has been in a relationship with Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo, from the musical group Benji & Fede, and the two announced their engagement in March 2021. In July 2019, Thorne said she identifies as pansexual.
In June 2019, Thorne had nude photos stolen by hackers who subsequently threatened her with extortion; she instead released the photographs herself. Later that year, she addressed the issue of pornographic deepfakes.
