Bella Thorne directed a film for Pornhub. This is her directorial debut and could not sound more shocking to her fans.

The “Shake It Up” actress has now come a long way from being the Disney child star that many adored years ago. At 21, she already engaged in her first directorial project and while fans are certainly proud of her, some are also questioning her choice on this field. This is because among the many possible projects she could have engaged in, her first project is a porn film as part of Pornhub’s Visionaries Director’s Series. 

Given the design of this series, Thorne making a movie for it should not be that surprising. The Visionaries Director’s Series is designed to feature "debut films by unexpected guest directors to diversify porn production and help create more varied content with multiple types of viewers in mind," as reported by the CNN. Thorne is unexpected, alright. 

The film is entitled “Her & Him.” In the official news release for the movie made by Pornhub, it can be said that it has an interesting plot. It will be depicting a guy at his 20s, who “stumbles upon a surprise text in his girlfriend's phone, interrupting their morning routine and spinning everything into an out-of-control sexually charged encounter.”

Thorne personally shared her thought process and feelings about the movie in the behind-the-scenes Pornhub Youtube video about it. She said that the original plan was a Christmas-themed horror movie, but she changed her mind and came up with a “beautiful, ethereal film.” She also shared that she felt lucky to be able to be part of this Pornhub project.

She thought her work is quite a breakthrough in the porn scene. "People are kind of scared to make a movie like this one when it comes to dominance and submissive(ness) between a male and a female and how this relationship can turn quite sour,” she shared. 

The movie has cast film stars adult entertainment actors Abella Danger and Small Hands. Music from the equally innovative rapper, Mod Sun is used.  

The movie has been praised by Pornhub Vice President, Corey Price. According to Price, the movie is modernistic as well as sexually explicit. It can also be compared to a modern Romeo and Juliet movie. 

Fans need not be so shocked anymore that Thorne has become bolder ever since her Disney days. She never shied away from talking about hard issues such as sex and sexuality. Recently, she clarified that she is pansexual and not a bisexual, in an interview with Good Morning America

"Her & Him" will be shown on September 11 at the Oldenburg International Film Festival in Germany.
