Which Celebs Were Bullied As Kids?

Sponsored Post

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.

    It could also happen at home too, it did with me. It’s happening with me at work right now {I work at the same place as my mother, another manager has an issue with my mother and takes it out on me, every damn time I work with her}

    I don’t think I’ll see this documentary-but it might be able to help those who are experiencing bullying or trying to overcome the after effect of bullying they may have experienced. Maybe it will stop bullying and get people to take action instead of turning a blind eye to it.

    It does happen at home. I was bullied by my younger step sister when I was in grade 12 and she in grade 9. She was horrible. The bullying wasn’t physical. It was all verbal and VERY hurtful. It got so bad that I asked my friend if she would ask her parents if I could move in with them. I must have told my parents about it though b/c I didn’t end up leaving.

    We are closer now. No one ever talks about it. I don’t even know if she remembers.
