Cape Town – Former Disney child star, Bella Thorne has directed her very first movie.

The 21-year-old makes her directorial debut with an adult film for PornHub, titled Her & Him.

According to a press release from the website, the film "depicts an edgy twenty-something guy who stumbles upon a surprise text in his girlfriend's phone, interrupting their morning routine and spinning everything into an out-of-control sexually charged encounter".

In a behind-the-scenes video, Bella spoke about the filmmaking process and the inspiration behind the film.

"What inspired me to do this movie was basically thinking about this relationship between a male and a female and this fight over dominance and how much it relates to our general world," said Bella.

Speaking about the process of filming, she said it was very interesting because there was real-life sex on set.

"This was my first short in general, so it was quite an interesting experience to have the first thing that I ever really fully directed have so much sex in it. It is quite a fun environment."

The film is part of Pornhub's Visionary Director’s Series, which "features debut films by unexpected guest directors to diversify porn production and help create more varied content with multiple types of viewers in mind".

Her & Him which stars adult entertainment stars Abella Danger and Small Hands will premiere at the Oldenburg Film Festival in Germany in September and will after that become available to premium Pornhub subscribers.

Bella also shared the news on Instagram. Alongside a screengrab on an article, she wrote: "Top leading indie fest, first time directing, first time writing, so excited to grow more in this lane."
