Bella Thorne's 'no retouching' rule for nude cover

Team Be

Bella Thorne is "not perfect".

The 19-year-old actress has posed nude for GQ Mexico and revealed she requested the publication didn't digitally-alter any of the pictures because she wanted to show she has flaws, even though she's insecure about her looks.

On the cover of the magazine, Bella's knees appeared to be bruised as she lies fully clothed in a bathtub.

She shared a photo from the shoot on Instagram and wrote: "I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme tell you I have insecurities, about pretty much everything. That's natural & that's human.

"You might look at this photo and think oh shush bella, but just know everytime 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.(sic)"

And Bella went on to encourage people to open up more about their own worries and insecurities.

She continued: "Honestly I wish everyone talked more about their insecurities so more people in the world could know they aren't alone. That it's ok.

"As a public persona you know naturally that everytime 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***ING PERFECT. IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your a*ses over the fence and GET OVER IT. (sic)"

The Famous in Love actress also shared a behind-the-scenes video featuring herself on the set, topless and wearing only pants, a garter belt and stockings as she gazed into a mirror.

It's not the first time the star has barred all on the cover of a magazine.

Last year the former Disney star stripped down for Playboy, appearing on the magazine's November issue cover.

In an interview with the publication Bella revealed she has no problem with nudity and enjoys showing off some skin whenever she can.

"There's this effort to try to shame a woman's sexiness by pulling a cover over it, but I'm a woman who loves skin. I love skin on me, I love skin on girls, I love skin on guys," she adds. "If you're confident enough to show off your body, you should. Be confident."

"It can be difficult to get yourself to focus on you all the time, especially when you're trying to transition into who you really are, but I'm not going to change for anybody else. I love staying true to me."
