Winner of many awards, Taylor is living the good life with parties at her disposal as and when she desires. She doesn’t even seem to have a shortage of friends. From her pictures and Instagram profile, she seems to be having the time of her life. However things weren’t the same for her in school. Taylor said that she was extremely lonely in school and the main reason she started writing songs was because she barely had any friends.

With great acting skills in her kitty, there seems to be no stopping for this young lady. However during school days, Charlize didn’t always get it as easy as she seems to have it today. She didn’t have any boyfriends in high school! She had a huge, huge crush on this one particular boy who was few years older than her, but he never even noticed her. It was like she didn’t exist in his world at all. Well Charlize, the Universe seems to be working in your favour now, which is great!
Being one of the prettiest singers out there, Selena has seen her fair share of heartbreaks. Things weren’t that simple for her in school either.

Naya who is known for her role is Glee is now 28 years old. However her high school days weren’t as gleeful as today. She said that she was almost like Artie and Rachel. Like Artie, she was a nerd and was always trying to fit in. She would consistently try to always keep her hair flat like most nerds in school. Like Rachel, she always knew what she wanted but was never really pleasing. After singing and acting came into her life, things seemed to be not so bad after all.
Even today when Lady Gaga goes to certain events in her unconventional clothes, she immediately catches the media’s attention. We are guessing her nature didn’t just start with her career but actually did way before that. When Gaga was younger, she was always being teased. Kids of her age would call her ugly and weird. They would tell her that her laugh is so funny and would question her about why she would sing all the time. ‘Why are you in theatre and why do you put your makeup like that?,’ are some of the other questions that people would keep bombarding her with.
The gorgeous actor who is also an entrepreneur now, came from much more humble beginnings. Her parents were not very well to do and she wouldn’t be able to fit into the circle of friends around her. During school, she would sit with the nurses to eat lunch as the rest of her class was not very accepting. Alba is from a mixed race which also caused problems in getting along. Moreover, she never had the kind of nice clothes as the other kids would wear or a fancy backpack. Now, Alba is a wife and a great mom, living a happy life.
Now one of the sexiest actresses on the block, Megan was not as fortunate as a kid. She was bullied by the rest of her class terribly. When she was just fifteen years old, Jessica knew that she wanted to be an actress. The rest of her friends knew it too and would make fun of her. On one Halloween, a girl from her class came dressed as a cat woman. When the rest of the girls asked her if she was the cat woman, she replied saying that no she was dressed as Megan Fox! Ouch. That girl was very obviously, making fun of Megan. Megan on the other hand, didn’t say a word to her back then as she was really shy, but look at her now!
Brittany who is a great actress was bullied on a daily basis when she was way younger. The constant bullying made her face other struggles too while also making her stronger. She was treated like an outcast and felt alone most of the time. Poor Brittany, we are happy you are a stronger woman now.
Chad Michael Murray
We always wonder how boys like Chad can make this list, right? Well Chad hated high school and barely had any friends. He said he didn’t fit in and could barely socialize with people. Now, he has turned into a dapper young actor and has a huge fan following.
As sexy as she is, Cameron saw some tougher days when she was in school. She admits that she was a complete dork and a nerd. She also called herself a goon! All the kids would make fun of her as she was extremely skinny and gangly. Although, it isn’t a very hard deal for Cameron to find a boy now, back then, boys wouldn’t really even look towards her. Well Cameron, everything happens for the best right.
During her time in school, Mischa didn’t seem to get along too well with the popular girls of her class. She came from a poor background and didn’t have enough money to buy the nice clothes. The situation made her self-conscious and that played a major role in her confidence.
Rated as one of the most crushed-on boys, Zac is an attractive and talented young individual. During his school days, Zac had the hardest time coming around. He is now a heartthrob and millions of girls would die to get to know him. Zac said that during school days, he was a part of the musical theatre, something which is not perceived in a great way. There were guys who were tall, had big beards and stood out, while Zac was scrawny and skinny looking and awkward 17-year old. He started to bloom and look sexier much later. For Zac, being in high school was a complete disaster. We feel you Zac!
The beautiful actress wasn’t really like the popular or wanted kinds during her days in high school. She said that she was geeky and a nerd, and didn’t really have any boyfriends during that phase.
She looks like a goddess and we hope you agree. Jennifer was one of those nerds in the classroom who had no frivolous wants or needs and lived the simple life. She was never a part of the popular group and always sat in the corner of her class. She was of the kinds who were on the edge of the group and neither did she wear the right clothes. She even admits that she was naturally a geeky person. Jennifer was part of the school band and at the age of 13, it wasn’t exactly a cool thing. If someone would have asked her what she wanted to be then, she would have probably said a ‘librarian.’ Well Jennifer, we wonder what happened there!
