Bella Thorne Opens Up About Handling Haters & Body-Shamers

Bella Thorne has had her fair share of haters.

The 19-year-old Famous in Love star admits that while it can sometimes really get to her, she always tries to combat it in the best way she can.

“It all just depends on the person. If you’re one of those people who is super happy-hippy, and you’re just like ‘you know what, no negativity, man, I’m not going to even respond, I don’t even want to see it, I don’t care for it, it’s just in one ear and out the other,’ then like, that’s dope that you can live your life like that,” Bella told Teen Vogue. “But for me, I can’t help but want to say something and correct somebody. It’s good that people see that you’re sticking up for yourself. It makes other people maybe think ‘OK, well I’m going to stick up for myself, too. She can do it I can as well.’ But, on the other hand, it’s like you’re just drawing attention to more hatred when people need to see more positivity. So, it’s good and bad — you can’t win, you can’t lose.”

Bella also opened up about how she tackles being slut-shamed and body-shamed online.

“You know I’m not really sure what to say. I feel like everybody leads such a different life and feels very different feelings,” Bella said. “Everybody kind of thinks they’re alone — and they’re not. I have been slut-shamed; I have been body-shamed. Do you, man! Eat what you want, be healthy, work out —not because working out makes you look good, no, because it’s good for your body and it’s good for your energy and everything. When I workout I do feel more positive. I want to go out in the sunshine.”

She added, “And you know sometimes staying in your house too much and lying in bed, and kind of just sopping around, can actually make you feel more depressed about whatever you’re going through. So I feel like eat healthy, be happy, work out if you want to, go out and have fun. Try not to care. And if you do care it’s OK because everyone does. Try and always put some type of positive spin on it, I guess.”
