Bella Thorne has opened up about a ‘terrible’ experience she had that resulted in her no longer kissing fans. 

The Babysitter actress, 25, made a name for herself by playing CeCe Jones on Disney’s Shake It Up between 2010 and 2013.

She’s also appeared in numerous movies, including You Get Me (2017) and Midnight Sun (2018).

In 2020, Thorne branched out to OFs and became the platform’s first-ever person to earn $1 million in their first 24 hours.

Due to her high profile, the actress has received plenty of attention, which she says has resulted in some uncomfortable experiences over the years.

Thorne acknowledged that at one point, she would kiss a fan if they asked.

Appearing on the Going Mental Podcast, the Famous in Love actress explained: “I used to kiss fans, especially as a lot of fans would ask me to kiss them for a photo – mostly on the cheeks, sometimes on the lips.

“Sometimes when it’s a really cute gay girl, and they’re like ‘F***ing came out because of you bro, can you please kiss me?’. 

“And I’m like, ‘How am I gonna say no to that?’. I’m like ‘Yes, I’m gonna f***ing kiss you, it’s fine’.”

She went on to recall a situation ‘one time’ that led to her no longer doing this.

Thorne said she was leaving the cinema with her friend when they were approached by a group of boys.

The 25-year-old explained: “These boys, they asked us for a photo.

“We’re like OK, and they’re taking the photo, and in the middle of the photo, they’re like, ‘Can you kiss me on the cheek?’.

“Me and my friend at the time were like ‘uh…’. It’s this very big group of boys, and it’s just us so…

“You know, as a woman, the moment you feel pressured… Just in any scenario where the tables are turned and physically you feel vulnerable. This was one of those moments.”

Thorne said she proceeded to kiss the fan on the cheek when he turned and ‘put his tongue literally all over my face’.

She said the situation was made even worse when the group proceeded to push boundaries with her friend by grabbing her head as he kissed her.

Thorne described the incident as ‘terrible’ and said it helped her to create ‘boundaries’, such as avoiding large crowds of people.
