Bella Thorne isn't shy about sex. The actor and author recently came out as pansexual, and has been a proponent for sex positivity and LGBTQ rights throughout her young adult life. 

When the 21-year-old's nude photos were hacked, she reclaimed her independence and posted them to Twitter before the hacker had the chance, thus ending the blackmail. The act was a defiant and empowered one, and many praised her for it. Although she did receive some backlash, her famous friends and her fans jumped in to support her. 

Her recently released tell-all memoir and book of poetry has been selling out everywhere, and is receiving a wide array of praise. Now she's adding another job to her lengthy résumé — director. 

Thorne leads a "beautiful, ethereal, neon" short pornographic film produced by Pornhub. The young artist's first project was an ambitious one, but something she was excited to take on. 

The short film has been described as a "sexually explicit Romeo and Juliet."

After the film's debut at the 2019 Oldenburg Film Festival in Germany, it will be posted to Pornhub Premium for viewers to see. The trailer reveals a thrilling and erotic relationship in which a woman wants to kill her male partner. Her & Him stars porn actors Abella Danger and Small Hands aka Aaron Thompson. 

Thorne's original idea was a Christmas horror movie, but that idea led to the neon thrilling short porn Her & Him. 

The actor discussed the experience of filming sex, and it being her introduction to the directing world. The relationship between the two actors touches on the gender dynamics of dominance and submission, as well as sexuality, she says in a behind-the-scenes interview. 

Thorne is the third director to work with Pornhub's Visionary Directors installation in an attempt to "diversify porn production and help create more varied content with multiple types of viewers in mind," according to Paper magazine

After her nude photos were hacked, Thorne spoke about her experience. 

"I like sexy. I love skin, like, I love seeing skin... I like sexy girls, I like sexy guys. I just like sexy in general," Thorne shared in an unfiltered ABC interview. Ahead of the release of her book The Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray, she shared her experience with overcoming sexual abuse as a child, and the blackmail she faced after her nude photos were hacked. Despite the struggles she's endured through her young life, she has been open and honest about it all. 

The artist's famous friends came forward to show their support. 

Thorne thanked Lucy Hale for her words of support in a screenshot shared to Instagram. The messages from Hale read, "Good for you baby girl. I'm so proud of you for speaking up... This breaks my heart. But you're making a difference for other girls and women!" 

Thorne captioned the post, "When ur friends come out of the woodworks to support u is all u need to be brave. PART ONE and thank u @dovecameron for speaking up SO much on this matter and posting on your grid."

Thorne has now shared a few more of her director credits — short films based on her book of poetry. 

Another short film Thorne directed was a visual to go alongside her poem "Sours and Blues." The video showed a teary-eyed Thorne surrounded by white fluff in an undone white button-down. Her new boyfriend, Italian musician Benjamin Mascolo, was impressed and commented, "The chills don't have a [redacted] genre." 

Thorne has been openly dating Mascolo for a few weeks, and they've already shown off their cute relationship on social media. 

Thorne shared two cute photos of the happy couple and wrote, "Date night vs. staying in... u choose. U already know my fave." The musician replied, "You can see the luckiest man on earth in these pics." Clearly, the two are feeling extremely in love and aren't shy about it on social media. 

Thorne now has author, actor, and director under her belt, but she's also working on her very own cannabis line. 

Thorne was featured in an advertisement for a Californian cannabis farm that wasn't allowed to air during the 2019 Oscars. Thorne has been a staunch proponent of legalizing marijuana and shared that she is starting her own line and partnering with an undisclosed farm in California.
