Charlize Theron Was Teased in High School

Like every hot actress out there, Charlize Theron has her own ugly duckling story. Hers is the usual. Nerdy, glasses, crushes and a distinct lack of boyfriends.

“I wore really nerdy glasses because I was blind as could be and the boys didn’t like [me],” the actress, 36, told PEOPLE recently in New York. “I didn’t have any boyfriends, but lots of crushes.” PEOPLE

One thing different with her story is she was a borderline stalker of the popular girl in her class.

“I wasn’t in the popular crowd. There was a really popular girl at school and I was obsessed with her. I mean you would go to jail for that stuff today,” Theron says with a laugh. “I was in tears one day because I couldn’t sit next to her.”

Of course, she was teased relentlessly but learned to brush it off.

“I actually got a lot of the mean girl stuff from the ages of 7 to 12. I was pretty much a mess in primary school,” she admits. “But I got that out of my system by the time I got to high school and was more immune to all of that stuff.”

And look at her today. A hot, young, Oscar winning actress. If those boys could see her now. Actually, they probably do, only, they probably can’t see the double middle fingers Charlize Theron gives them every night. “Haha, screw you losers,” she screams at her yearbook before bed.

As well as being a superb actress and yes quite beautiful I’ve always found Ms. Theron simply enchanting …and now even more so.
