In the lead up to the release of the poignant documentary film Bully, which deals with one of the most relevant and important issues today, we look at which celebs have opened up about being bullied as kids or teens. The great thing about this new docu-film is that it is giving a profile to an issue that has been around for decades, forever perhaps, but never fully dealt with. I know so many young people (myself included) who were bullied at one time or another in their lives, and not always at school; it happens in workplaces too. We often forget that it happens to celebrities too, and hearing about this will hopefully make others out there realize that it has nothing to do with them — but the bullies and the culture encouraging them. Some of the most successful and idolized stars today were bullied when they were younger… Lady Gaga, Madonna, Eminem, Zooey Deschanel and Winona Ryder to just name a few. Check out our gallery of celebs that were bullied, and what they have to say about it now.
