Promoting Jennifer’s Body, Megan Fox told E! News that she was bullied in high school, she was a cheerleader back then and you know how much bullies liked to pick on them, and assures teenage girls that it’s only four years of their life.

“I was bullied and it’s hard, you feel like high school’s never going to be over. It’s four years of your life and you just have to remember the person picking on you has their own problems and their own issues,” she adds. “And you’re going to be OK.”

Though pretty generic, it’s better than the advice I would have given which was to find an alternate route to school no matter if it’s 15 miles out of the way and that if you go to Macy’s, they’ll help you pick out the exact concealer you need to hide bruising and most importantly, get your parents involved. Preferably your mother. She’ll be able to stand up to those mean bullies which will in turn earn you the respect of your peers.
