I wanna take you out.” And some girls are just, like, “No, you can’t,” because a lot of girls are not out, especially if they’re in the industry, which is most of the people that I know.
Thorne and I sat together cross-legged on the floor of a soundstage in Los Angeles earlier this year to talk about life, and though girlfriend is only 19 years old, she often comes off as older than her years, thanks to her refreshing honesty. You got to be open because anybody you talk to is going to say, “You know what, I have experienced that, and here’s what I think about it.” And the more conversation goes on about it, the more positivity you can spread with other people.The event was to celebrate Thorne’s partnership with SIX:02 and the launch of a video in which Thorne thanks her haters, because, as she put it in the video, “I totally would be here without you, but it wouldn’t be so much fun.” Thorne and I discussed what it’s like to be cyberbullied and her best strategies to survive internet trolls. If that negative experience that’s happened to you can actually help somebody else, that is what is beautiful.Turns out, she approaches her haters much like she approaches the rest of her life—with a frankness that cuts straight to the source and doesn’t try to take the easy way out by pretending it’s not happening. That is taking something ugly, and that is saying, “Fuck you, I’m gonna make this happy anyway, and I’m not gonna let it affect me.I did my styling myself—I just picked out random shit. BT: If I can go without wearing makeup, I am not wearing makeup…and I definitely do go out of my way to show people what my skin really looks like. Don’t judge me by my Instagram page, because you don’t know me. A lot of times you see people on social and everybody just looks so perfect like, “Oh my god. So I do go out of my way to be like, “Yo, I take off my makeup” and “Look at what I look like in the mirror every day before I put on my makeup and after I take it off.” It’s not great. I feel like most people at some point in their lives go through acne. Sometimes I do a lot of night shoots, and I’m going to bed at 8 a.m.
