Were you bullied in school? Well, then you are in good company!
Stole this from the Huffington Post. It’s a good reminder that the people you think “have it all” are just people like the rest of us!
The ubiquitous Jennifer Lawrence is on everyone’s BFF wish-list nowadays, but turns out that wasn’t always the case. The 22-year-old actress revealed to The Sun that she was bullied throughout her childhood, something that built her character and made her who she is today.
“I changed schools a lot when I was in elementary school because some girls were mean,” Lawrence told The Sun. “They were less mean in middle school, because I was doing all right, although this one girl gave me invitations to hand out to her birthday party that I wasn’t invited to.”
But a Jennifer Lawrence story wouldn’t be complete without a Jennifer Lawrence twist: “I just hocked a loogie on them and threw them in the trash can,” she added. “Don’t worry about the bitches. That could be a good motto, because you come across people like that throughout your life.”
Lawrence also opened up about her new, slightly more grown-up status. “As for being a sex symbol, I don’t think of myself as sexy and, obviously, it’s not true,” she said. “I’m going to try to push that out of my mind because it makes me queasy.”
And if she is perceived as such, you can’t chalk it up to trying. “The other day I had pizza for breakfast, buffalo wings for lunch and pizza for dinner,” she told The Sun. “Probably my favourite food is a potato — just a potato, because I like fries, boiled potatoes, mashed potatoes, baked potatoes.”
