Bella Thorne wins Pornhub award for first adult movie

Actress Bella Thorne has won a Pornhub award for her directorial debut.

Despite making a name for herself on the Disney channel, the 22-year-old has taken her passion for film in a very different direction, by directing 'Her & Him' - a short adult film described by Pornhub as "a modernistic, sexually explicit Romeo and Juliet-like depiction of two star-crossed lovers who have an unbridled sexual longing for each other." 

This is the trailer for 'Her & Him': 

The film was created for the adult website's Visionaries Directors Club series and features two well-known stars in the industry, Small Hands and Abella Danger.

Having previewed at the Oldenburg Film Festival in Germany in September, it is now available to watch on PornHub, and on Saturday, it was announced that the film had won Thorne the Vision Award.

In a video, the 22-year-old opened up about the inspiration behind Her & Him.

"My vision originally actually was to make a Christmas horror movie. And instead, I made a very beautiful, ethereal, neon type of vision," she said.

"Sometimes you got into it thinking that you want something specific, and then you totally change your mind and you don't go with that idea at all."

Thorne continued: "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 our general world besides in a sexual scenario."

"Well, the process of shooting was quite interesting because we had real-life f***ing on set, which I have never shot before."

"Also this was my first short in general, so it was quite an interesting experience to have the first thing that I really fully directed have so much sex in it," she said. 

"It is quite a fun environment."
