Bella Thorne has strong message for her haters

Bella Thorne says all her haters can "f**k off".

The 19-year-old actress has a strong message to send to people on social media who call for her to change as a person, and although she "understands" some of the criticism she receives she's tired of people telling her she's "too edgy" now.

Speaking to Playboy magazine, Bella - who shot to fame on Disney Channel series 'Shake It Up' - said: "People often don't want to get to know the real you; they only want to get to know the person they think you are. For me, that means people are constantly trying to change me, every second of the day, especially on social media. I'm not fed up with social media - I understand it - but people like to comment on how my image is too edgy, that I'm too edgy, and on how they wish I looked. It's a lot of 'do this, don't do that.' To them I say, f**k off!"

Bella - who recently revealed on Twitter that she identifies as bisexual and is currently dating 'Teen Wolf' star Tyler Posey - appears in a sexy 70s-themed photo shoot for Hugh Hefner's iconic men's magazine, although she keeps most of her body covered up.

However, the Hollywood starlet believes both men and women should be "confident enough" to flaunt their body, and not feel the need to cover it up.

Bella - who has shared some photos from her Playboy shoot on her Twitter account - said: "There's this effort to try to shame a woman's sexiness by pulling a cover over it, but I'm a woman who loves skin. I love skin on me, I love skin on girls, I love skin on guys. If you're confident enough to show off your body, you should. Be confident. It can be difficult to get yourself to focus on you all the time, especially when you're trying to transition into who you really are, but I'm not going to change for anybody else. I love staying true to me."
