How could anyone bully such a sweetie?!
Cutesy actress Hayden Panettiere has revealed in a interview with the Metro newspaper that she was tortured as a kid by school bullies. Awe!
The actress, who shot to fame in Heroes and will soon be starring in grisly thriller Scream 4 alongside Courtney Cox, said that unlike her popular character in hit movie I Love You Beth Cooper, she was never a part of the cool gang. "I was tortured. I sat at the popular table but I wasn't accepted."
"They thought that that I thought I was better than them because of what I did. I had been in soap operas and commercials. Girls that age are horrifying. Talk about giving someone a complex, many times I'd come home from school sobbing."
Hayden has even shared that her most embarrassing moment at the hands of the bullies was when they humiliated her at lunch time. "The very first time they asked me to sit at their table at lunchtime, one of the guys pulled my chair out from under me. They were so mean to me." Awe! We want to give the poor darling a hug.
But with a string of movies now firmly under her belt, and a look we'd all seriously love to steal, Hayden has certainly showed those losers who's better!
If they ever did come back to get her though, we're quite sure her gigantic boxer BF, Wladimir Klitschko, could more than deal with them!
Do you feel sorry for what Hayden had to go through at school? Are you glad to see she's risen above the bullies? Comments please Sugarscapers!
