Bella Thorne to receive Pornhub directorial award

Bella Thorne has gotten the porn world’s seal of approval.  Bella Thorne probably shocked quite a few of her old fans when she debuted a short film she directed, Her & Him, for PornHub last month.

Thorne had been trying to get backers for the movie for some time, but came up dry until the site chose to step and and feature it as one of their Visionaries Director’s Series films. Now, PornHub is honoring Thorne with an award for her work.

PornHub announced recently that Bella Thorne will be honored with their Vision Award at the company’s second annual PornHub Awards Show, which will take place in Los Angeles on October 11. And, Thorne has already let everyone know how pumped she is that Her & Him was received so well.

I’m honored to receive this award. I’m excited for visions of beauty like this to be shed in a new light. Breaking the taboo of what’s classified as beautiful has always been a vision of mine and it brings me such joy to see this being recognized for what it truly is…beautiful visionary art.

Earlier this year Thorne, 21, joined forces with the adult entertainment streaming giant to create the third installment of its Visionary Director’s Series. The initiative started last year and “features debut films by unexpected guest directors in an effort to diversify porn production and help create more varied content.”

“It was a pleasure working alongside Bella to debut her film, Her & Him, as part of our Visionary Director’s Series and help create genre-defying content that will appeal to our fast-growing — and increasingly diverse — audience,” Pornhub veep Corey Price said. “We’re excited to honor her at our upcoming awards show on October 11 and to present her with the prestigious Vision Award.”

Bella Thorne directorial ‘Her & Him’ Story

The movie, which features adult film stars Abella Danger and Small Hands, focuses on a man who picks up his girlfriend’s phone, only to realize that she’s been investigating ways to kill your lover and get away with the crime. Their morning then spirals out of control, turning into a sexually charged encounter.

Bella Thorne’s film was the third made for PornHub’s Visionaries Director’s Series, which features debut movies from unexpected directors in an effort to create more diversified porn content.

The female lead literally searches “how to kill your boyfriend and get away with it” in the trailer for the film.  The project debuted at The Oldenberg Film Festival in germany and featured porn performers Abella Danger and Small Hands. Not too shabby for your first go.

Although, it’s only fair to point out that there’s a bit of self-fellating going on here: Pornhub partnered with Thorn on the film as a part of their Visionaries Director’s Club series, and now they are rewarding her for that collaboration. We aren’t saying they are biased but we are also not, not saying they are biased.

But however stacked the deck is, the actual awards show will likely be a good time: Bad Bunny, Ian Isiah, Kali Uchis, Rico Nasty, Tommy Genesis, and Ty Dolla $ign are all performing apparently. Yeah, a real show!

While Thorne revealed she initially wanted to create a “Christmas horror movie”, she said to Pornhub, “Sometimes you go into thinking you want something specific and you totally change your mind and you don’t go with that idea at all.”

In the released (safe for work) trailer above, Danger and Hands are seen battling for dominance as both wield knives in a surreal washed-out neon landscape. The trailer ends with Danger wildly stabbing a wall as a voiceover screams “die” over and over again.

In a behind the scenes video, Thorne spoke candidly about the project. She said, “What inspired me to do the movie was basically thinking about this relationship between a male and a female and this fight over dominance, and how much that relates to us in a general world besides in a sexual scenario.”

She also added it was “quite interesting” making her debut with Her & Him, as it was her first ever project as a director. Thorne said it was a “fun environment” and added she was “really lucky” to be working with Pornhub, explaining that she had difficulty finding a producer to come onto the project.

Bella Thorne said, “I’m really lucky that Pornhub wanted to come on and direct this with me because originally, you know, I was shopping it around a very long time ago and things were very different.”

“It’s quite a scary project to just jump into because it has naked and physical effects,” Bella Thorne continued, “and I was just really lucky that Pornhub believed in my vision and was not scared to jump in it with me.”

More recently, Thorne made headlines when she confronted a hacker who attempted to blackmail her with private nude photographs she had taken. The star took to Twitter to release a statement, revealing she had “been threatened with [her] own nudes”, and then made the decision to pre-empt them and publish her own photographs online.

Bella Thorne wrote,

“I’m putting this out because it’s MY DECISION NOW U DONT GET TO TAKE YET ANOTHER THING FROM ME. I can sleep tonight better knowing I took my power back.”

Bella Thorne said in her Her & Him interview,

“If you think that porn is uncomfortable, I’m sorry that you are uncomfortable. But don’t make other people feel uncomfortable for being okay with it, because at the end of the day – it is sex.”

“And it’s something that the human body, it wants, it needs, it constantly craves for it,” she continued, “and it’s a very understandable thing. And if you’re scared of it, that’s fine – to each their own – but don’t tear somebody else down because they’re confident with their sexuality and they’re okay to admit that.”

A former Disney star, Bella Thorne has been busy recently. There was her book, Life of a Wannabe Mogul: Mental Disarray, there’s been some extremely candid and personal poetry on her Instagram, and then there was her BDSM porn. Yeah, remember that! Well, now the flick is picking up awards.

Bella Thorne isn’t done with more traditional avenues of entertainment, though. She currently has seven projects in some stage of production, including a sequel to Netflix’s The Babysitter and the upcoming series Paradise City.
