Bella Thorne specifically requested that her nude picture in GQ Mexico magazine shouldn't be retouched, in a bid to show fans that she's anything but perfect.
The 19-year-old actress is seen flaunting her lithe physique while sitting on a chair completely naked for the shot, with her arm placed over her chest to protect her modesty. While it seemed there was little to fault about the picture, Bella took to Instagram to tell fans that she sees a different image as she is also insecure about her appearance.
But she decided to request the magazine avoid photoshop for the shoot to prove that nobody is perfect, and is now hoping that her decision will help others realize how much "perfection" is achieved through digital alterations.
Sharing a picture of the nude snap on Instagram, Famous In Love star Bella wrote: "I specifically asked for no re touching on this photo, and lemme (sic) 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. 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."
Concluding her post, the fiery actress wrote: "But f**k it I'm here to tell you that's right I'm not F**KING PERFECT. IM A HUMAN BEING AND IM REAL. So hip hop your asses over the fence and GET OVER IT. @gqmexico."
