Thorne, a vocal body-hair activist, gave cameras a peek of her armpit hairs at the 2018 premiere of "Midnight Sun." "Guys feel more manly when they have body hair, right? So what's the problem with a woman wanting to feel more manly (or, in my case, just lazy AF)?" Thorne wrote in an essay for InStyle. "Because I have a vagina, I have to be feminine all the time? Excuse me, but no."
