10 Celebrities Who Were Bullied When They Were Young

10. Rihanna

8. Kate Winslet

Kate Winslet never hid the fact that she was an overweight kid who was bullied and called names as a result of it. Her teachers, on the other hand, denied that she was being bullied, therefore the subject was brought up again later. She was said to be a high-achieving student who was friends with all of the kids.

This misinformation, according to Kate, stems from the fact that victims of bullying are scared and isolated, making it difficult for them to speak up about their suffering. She only confided in one teacher, who aided her during a difficult period. Kate emphasizes the value of this support and wishes for it to be available to every bullied youngster.

7. Robert Pattinson

This celebrity heartthrob also admits to being unpopular in high school. His early enthusiasm for acting was misunderstood by his peers, and he received a lot of abuse as a result.

3. Justin Timberlake

Bullying was a feature of the renowned singer and pop idol of his generation's childhood. He admits that he was anything from cool. Justin's acne, "weird hair," and predilection for arts and music over sports did not endear him to his peers, who dubbed him "sissy."

2. Angelina Jolie

Despite the fact that she denies being bullied, Angelina Jolie was given nicknames and harassed due of her attractiveness, according to a former caregiver. Her broad shoulders, long legs, and huge lips, which are now popular, were clearly unfashionable at the time.
