Bella Thorne may have dated both men and women in the past, but she admitted she only recently realised she is actually pansexual.
The actor told Good Morning America that while she came out as bisexual in 2016, she now realises that she’s actually attracted to ‘beings’ and personalities rather than certain genders.
She explained: ‘I’m actually a pansexual, and I didn’t know that. Somebody explained to me really thoroughly what that is. You like beings, you like what you like.
‘Doesn’t have to be a girl, or a guy, or … you know, a he, a she, a they, or this or that. It’s literally, you like personality, like you just like a being.’
She added: ‘It doesn’t really matter what’s going on, over there. If I just like it, I like it!’
Bella has previously dated YouTuber Tana Mongeau at the same time as singer Mod Sun, but split with them both earlier in the year and is now dating Italian singer Benjamin Mascolo.
Bella’s not the first high-profile star to reveal they don’t prefer a specific gender – Miley Cyrus has famously spoken out about gender not mattering in her choice of partner, as well as Kesha, Janelle Monae and Sia among others.
Bella may still only be 21, but it’s safe to say she has more life experience than most people twice her age, having begun her career as a child star. She’s releasing a no holds barred book about her struggles with self-acceptance, bullying, dyslexia and sexual abuse, entitled Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray.
