Bella Thorne says she lost a role at 10 years old because the director accused her of 'flirting with him'
Bella Thorne says a director didn't cast her when she was 10 because he felt she was flirting with him.
"What the fuck are you talking about, man?" she said on the "High and Low with EmRata" podcast.
"Why ever would you think that? Why?" she said.
Bella Thorne reflected on a disturbing moment when she was a child actor that still haunts her to this day while speaking to Emily Ratajkoski for her podcast "High and Low with EmRata."
"I had a director give me feedback once and I was 10," Thorne said around the 25-minute mark of the podcast episode. "The casting director calls my agent and the agent calls my mom, and they're like, 'So, she's not moving forward because the director felt like she was flirting with him and it made him really uncomfortable.'"
"What the fuck are you talking about, man?" she continued. "I don't give a fuck what the fuck I said. I don't care if I said, 'Eat my p**** right now' — she is 10 years old! Why ever would you think that? Why?"
Thorne told Ratajkoski that it's an episode in her life that she still replays in her mind today wondering what she could have done to make the director think that.
"I'm trying to find, almost, fault in myself," she said. "Like, 'What did you do, Bella? What did you do that you made him feel like this?' And every time I'm like, 'Bella, stop it. Even that thought right there is becoming part of the problem. Don't even think that thought.' It does drive me crazy."
Thorne, 25, earlier this year questioned why she's deemed so controversial while speaking to The Daily Beast.
"I haven't been arrested. I'm not doing bad things," she said. "Of course I am a woman, and that definitely plays a part in it."
"If I post in a bikini, it's 'She's a slut,' but if a man posts shirtless on a beach, it's 'Fuck yeah, bro,'" she continued. "If a man posts with a different girl every other day, it's 'Fuck yeah, bro, keep getting that pussy,' but if I'm in a three-year relationship, and then break up, and then get into another three-year relationship, it's 'Wow, Bella Thorne, she's a ho. Look at her.' I'm like, what? I've been in long-term relationships my whole life!"
