Recently, reports emerged that acclaimed “Tangerine” and “The Florida Project” filmmaker Sean Baker was working with actress and model Bella Thorne on a documentary about Thorne joining the subscription service. Popular OnlyFans content.
Launched in 2016, the website allows anyone to subscribe for a monthly fee (often $ 10) to a single content creator account where they will typically see regularly updated clips and photos – this is basically of a monetized Instagram with no content or video length restrictions (and No Comments).
Although used by a variety of content creators, from fitness experts to conductors and musicians, it is best known for its use by both professional and budding amateur pornstars as anyone can win. money posting a few masturbation and / or sex videos, and do so with complete creative control over what they show and / or not. However, they also have to market, advertise, publish, edit and manage books related to how to earn income in this way often on their own.
Thorne made a resounding and widely reported debut on the platform the other week and made $ 1 million on day one alone and double that in less than a week. Thorne said she joined the outlet only as a search for a role in the movie Baker, although Baker himself never commented on such a project.
The news of her windfall has sparked an uproar among sex workers who say she is taking jobs away from full-time performers who actually depend on the platform to pay their bills. Thorne’s arrival was hit by a backlash as she allegedly sent a message promising more explicit photos of herself than those received by subscribers, sparking a wave of refund requests.
As a result of this, OnlyFans apparently changed the rules for all content creators on the platform, which both caps the amount that can be charged and slows down the process of paying creators. Facing the backlash against Thorne and OnlyFans for changing the rules, Baker has now released a statement refuting Thorne’s claims. He said on Twitter:
“I want to clarify that the news of me making a movie (documentary or fictional story) on OnlyFans and using Bella Thorne as research is false. I am NOT attached to this project. I’m currently in development on two feature films that I’ve put years of research into that I love and neither of those movies have anything to do with Ms. Thorne or OnlyFans.
Earlier this month, I had a conversation with Ms Thorne and discussed a possible collaboration in the distant future that would focus on her life and the circumstances that brought her to join Onlyfans. On this call, I advised her team to consult with sex workers and talk about how they are doing NOT harming the sex work industry. This has been the extent of my involvement.
[I’ve] I have literally dedicated my career to telling stories that eliminate stigma and normalize the lifestyles under attack. I would never do anything that could hurt the community. So know that this news is not correct. “
While mostly known off-screen these days, Thorne actually has a pretty comprehensive filmography with regular or recurring roles on shows like “Shake It Up,” “Paradise City,” “Scream: The TV Series,” “Big Love ”,“ My Own Worst Enemy ”and“ Dirty Sexy Money ”as well as movies like“ Assassination Nation ”,“ Boo! A Madea Halloween “,” Big Sky “,” Blended “and the voice of Cora in the PS4 reboot” Ratchet and Clank “.
