Bella Thorne Wanted To Bring Awareness To Bullying With 'Mean Girl' Comment

"It's not necessarily just about one person."

It's been a little over a month since Bella Thorne professed to Seventeen magazine that she's encountered a "very, very mean" girl in the entertainment business -- one who's "never had to work for anything in her life" because of her wealthy background.

And though the identity of this girl remains a mystery, the "Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Road Chip" actress elaborated a little on her previous statement in a conversation with HuffPost Live on Tuesday.

"It's not necessarily just about one person," Thorne told host Caroline Modarressy-Tehrani. "[My comment was about] letting girls know that what they're going through in life -- because you know there's always a mean girl in school -- it's in Hollywood, too. It doesn't change like that. Our life is not so overly glamorous. It's exactly what you're going through, but there's photos taken of it and that's kind of the difference. It's about bullying."

The wealthy background of this anonymous mean girl isn't what she finds offensive, clarified Thorne, but rather the way she goes about displaying it.

"If somebody wasn't flaunting [their wealth] in a mean way, to make other people feel bad about themselves, then I would not mind it," she said. "[I] would be [like], 'Go girl! You do you. Good for you -- I'm happy that you have a great life!' It's when people do it in certain types of ways that make you not really appreciate them as much."
