Bella Thorne opens up about flaws, retouching and body confidence

Bella Thorne is known for having a seriously toned physique, but the actress has revealed that she has her own insecurities when it comes to her body. 

The 19-year-old stripped down for a nude shoot in GQ, and took to Instagram to share the image, along with a few words about how she feels about her body. 

'I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything.' (sic)

'That's natural & that's human. You might look at this photo and think oh shush Bella, but just know every time someone looks in the mirror they simply don't see what everyone else sees.'

'Know that it's completely normal to feel insecure and it's accepted. Honestly I wish everyone talked more about their insecurities so more people in the world could know they aren't alone,' she said. 

'That it's ok. As a public persona you know naturally that every time you shoot with a magazine there is always small retouching.'

'Cuz yeah if they show my acne scars or a wrinkle in my forehead or my teeth aren't perfectly white, people will look at the photo and say no she's not perfect and usually most people don't want the public trashing and I get it.'

'But f*** it I'm here to tell you that's right I'm not F****** PERFECT. IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your asses over the fence and GET OVER IT,' she finished. 

Hear, hear, Bella!
