18 Celebrities Who Were Bullied

Posted by PZ on October 8th, 2010

It’s tough growing up, but for these stars, it was even tougher! Before these celebrities made it big, they were bullied – some were called names, while other say that their houses were egged, that they were beaten up, while others were threatened. Tom Cruise, who struggled with dyslexia as a young boy, claims to have been bullied at 15 different schools, while stars such as Mischa Barton says she was taunted for not being cool enough, and not fitting in: “I just wasn’t part of the popular clique, I was on the outside of it and that was when I was the most self-conscious… I didn’t dress cool enough, and I didn’t have enough money.”
