indoor begonia plant

Why is my plant not bushy anymore but has long stems with leaves at the end and no flowers? Should I cut them back to the bottom? Will this help it bush out?

If the plant's gotten leggy, it likely isn't receiving enough light. I would cut it back some, give the plant more light and for the flowering, it may help to add bone meal to the soil.
