Bella Thorne Directed a Porn, and Fans Are Confused AF

by at .

Our apologies for the Little Miss Muffett-like cadence of that headline, but sometimes the truth hurts -- and other times it rhymes.

It seems model/actress/whatever Bella Thorne has completed filming on her directorial debut.

But unlike other thespians who venture behind the camera, Bella's first film is decidedly NSFW.

Yes, Ms. Thorne has directed a short movie for Pornhub -- with two porn stars as her lead actors.

Despite all of that, she claims it's not a straight-up porn, exactly.

But that's a little like Farrah Abraham calling Backdoor Teen Mom a "sex tape," but we'll allow it.

"What inspired me to do this movie was thinking about this relationship between a male and a female and this fight over dominance and how much that relates to us in our general world, besides just a sexual scenario," Thorne explains in a "making of" featurette. 

"My vision behind the story was basically creating these two dynamic characters that could switch off between dominant and submissive."

Bella says the film -- which features adult performers Abella Danger and Small Hands -- started off as a very different sort of project:

"My initial idea was to create a Christmas horror movie, but instead I made a beautiful, ethereal film," she says.

"I'm lucky that Pornhub came on and produced this with me. They believed in my vision and weren't scared to jump in with me."

According to the description from Pornhub, the film centers around "an edgy twenty-something guy 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."

Pornhub Vice President Corey Price issued a statement about how totally artsy Bella's film is:

"We're proud to announce our collaboration with Bella Thorne for the next installment of our Visionaries Director's Club," he said in a press release.

"Her & Him is a modernistic, sexually explicit Romeo and Juliet-like depiction of two star-crossed lovers who have an unbridled sexual longing for each other. Their love is reckless and dangerous and transcends time and space."

The fact that Pornhub has a Visionaries Director's Club while legitimate theaters won't screen anything without superheroes might be the most 2019 thing we've ever heard of.

Unlike most porns, which debut on iPhone screens in bathroom stalls, Her & Him will have a proper premiere at the Oldenburg Film Festival in Germany

Interestingly, the film features music from Bella's most recent ex, rapper Mod Sun.

Bella and Mod's breakup was not an amicable one, and many fans have expressed shock that they were able to peacefully collaborate.

Of course, Bella's film apparently features a couple who just can't stay away from each other despite the unhealthy nature of their relationship.

Wait ... did Bella and Mod get back together on a porn set?

Because that would be the most 2019 thing we've ever heard of!
