US model Emily Ratajkowski (31) and actress Bella Thorne (25, “Midnight Sun”) have spoken openly about the sexualization of children in Hollywood. Thorne opened up on Tuesday on Ratajkowski’s High Low podcast about a disturbing response she received after an audition when she was 10. “The casting director called my agent and the agent called my mother and they were like, ‘She’s not going to get anywhere because the caster was flirting with her and it was making her feel very uncomfortable,'” Thorne said.

To this day, she thinks about that moment every day and then quickly begins to blame her ten-year-old self. “And every time I’m like, ‘Bella, stop it.’ Even that thought right now becomes part of the problem. It’s driving me crazy.” Thorne said it was “insane” for the casting director to react to a child in this way. “Why, why would you ever think such a thing?”

“If you need a crazier story about Hollywood and pedophilia – I don’t think there is one,” Ratajkowski said. She herself told how a model agent told her when she was 16 that you could see from her face that she was having sex. “Looking back, it was so fucked up that they would say that to a 16-year-old girl,” she stated. She took it as a sign of “our weird fetishization of underage girls.” (pak/dpa)
