Bella Thorne said she’s taken in more than $2 million from her page on the X-rated subscription site OnlyFans, and is focused on bringing a story about it to film.
The always-daring actress/author/entrepreneur, 22, said she’s focused on a collaboration with filmmaker Sean Baker about the site and entertainers showcased on it.
‘It’s a feature we are researching as I’m living it currently,’ Thorne told the Los Angeles Times on Tuesday. ‘What are the ins and outs? What does a platform like this do to its users? What’s the connective material between your life and your life inside the world of OnlyFans?
The grown-up Disney Channel alum said a potential film would explore the lifestyles and limits involved with being a performer on the site, on which she started a page last Wednesday with a $20 monthly fee for her feed.
‘How can it change your life for the worse and the better?’ the Infamous actress said. ‘How far are you willing to go, and how far do you WANT to go?
‘You can be me, or this talented girl from Montana, and OnlyFans could change your life – if you want it to, of course.’
The 5ft8 actress said she’s going to reinvest the proceeds in her early going on Only Fans toward charitable causes and her production company.
The South Florida native, who boasts more than 23.6 million Instagram followers, said that early plans would see Baker – who’s received plaudits for his indie films The Florida Project and Tangerine – write and direct the motion picture while she would be the lead actress.
A source told the paper the movie is ‘very early in its development – in its infancy – and probably years away from turning into anything.’
Thorne announced she was getting in on the fun with a very sultry social media video earlier this month. The grown-up Disney Channel alum was simply smoldering in the teaser, where she donned an array of skimpy bikinis and sparkling diamonds.
Bella beckoned fans to follow her in the steamy clip, which was backed by one of the star’s own songs. Never shy, the Infamous actress showed off her figure as she emerged from the pool soaking wet and wearing a white bikini
In another shot, she teased her cleavage while sporting a necklace with the word ‘Sex’ spelled out in diamonds.
Bella was also ready to indulge, seen smoking and sipping on a cocktail at other moments.
OnlyFans lets fans and creators to connect with content too spicy for Instagram, YouTube and other popular platforms.
Her NSFW content is worlds away from the squeaky-clean Disney shows that first put her in the spotlight.
Bella starred on Disney Channel’s Shake It Up from 2010 to 2013. She followed the kid-friendly comedy up with a mix of films, appearing in ensemble comedies like Blended (2014) and The Duff (2015).
In 2017 Bella returned to the small screen on Freeform’s Famous In Love, where she played a ordinary college student who breaks into show business after auditioning for the starring role in a Hollywood blockbuster.
Around that time she started gravitating towards edgier film projects, seen in the gory teen film Assassination Nation, the horror comedy The Babysitter, and Netflix’s chaotic romance You Get Me.
Bella flirted with the adult film industry in 2019 when PornHub released her erotic film Her & Him. Thorne won a Vision Award at the second annual PornHub Awards for the movie.
She’s also dabbled in other grown-up ventures, like her Forbidden Flowers cannabis brand.
