- Bella Thorne recently discussed her drug usage in an interview with the Los Angeles Times.
- She said when there’s visible acne on her skin, tabloids suggest that it’s because of “serious drugs.”
- “So are you telling every kid with cystic acne that they must be a heroin addict?” she said. “I’m just smoking weed.”
- She also said she used to be “super, super against weed” because she was a “really good two-shoes” as a teenager.
Bella Thorne said she believes her cystic acne leads people to believe she uses “serious drugs.”
“The Daily Mail will be like, ‘Bella must have been out partying last night’ because they got a photo of me not wearing makeup with acne,” she said. “They’re like, ‘She looks really tired out. Maybe the drugs are really wearing on her skin.'”
Thorne said she even draws beauty marks, using makeup to highlight the freckles on her face, to distract from her blemishes.
“I get so mad,” she continued. “So are you telling every kid with cystic acne that they must be a heroin addict? I think they think I take serious drugs, and I’m just smoking weed.”

The 21-year-old actress also said she used to be “super, super against weed” because she was a “really good two-shoes” as a teenager.
“When I was 16, my boyfriend smoked weed and I would get so upset,” she said. “I thought it was the devil’s lettuce. I was always the really good two-shoes – the one that was the teacher’s pet in that annoying sense.”
Now, apparently, there’s an area in her kitchen “entirely devoted to marijuana.”
This is not the first time Thorne has addressed speculation about her drug use. Back in May, Thorne posted a makeup-free photo of herself, and some commenters suggested the then 20-year-old was on drugs, like meth or cocaine, when the photo was taken.
“Cuz [sic] I don’t wear makeup and I’m exhausted from working and I have acne, and you guys think I’m [on] crack?” she wrote on Twitter.

She continued to slam internet trolls and called their criticism “disgusting.”
Thorne ended the Twitter thread by suggesting that haters evaluate the things they say online and remember that she’s a “real person” just like them.
