Well, this is a little bit out of line...
Jordan Gavaris, who plays Felix in Orphan Black, savagely dragged Bella Thorne and her credibility in Hollywood in a new interview and it's actually wild.
In an interview with Vulture, Jordan claimed that studios are now casting their movies and TV shows based on social media popularity and that it's damaging the industry. He then went on to name Bella Thorne as an example.
Jordan essentially suggested that the actress doesn't quite deserve to be cast in all these Hollywood roles, claiming those “who spend years toiling on working their craft and perfecting what it is they do,” are losing jobs to people like "that guy, or to people like Bella Thorne, or whatever.”
Jordan followed up his comments by saying they indeed made him sound like “an a**hole,” but he still didn't take them back or apologise.
"I’m sure they’re nice people and I’m sure they’re very talented, but I wouldn’t put money on them if I was in a position of power. I would never invest in those people. There’s not enough there. Not to say Bella Thorne couldn’t be a fantastic actress or that she’s not tremendously talented, but there’s not been enough investigation. There’s not enough of a commitment.”
Well, duh... of course producers and casting directors are going to take popularity into account, that's LITERALLY how the industry works. Anyway, Bella hasn't officially responded to the comment but is reportedly said to have called Jordan "jealous". Yikes.
Don't hate the player, the hate game sweetie.
