Actress Kate Winslet says she was bullied as a child for being chubby.
The 40-year-old says she was not always liked by all, but she managed to take revenge by having a successful acting career, reports pagesix.com.
“I was kind of bullied when I was younger, actually at school. For being chubby (or), you know, I had girls who were envious of me because I was acting a little bit as a teenager,” Winslet said on the “Today” show on Thursday.
Winslet added that she has managed to get her own back on the people who made fun of her by having a “really happy life”.
She said: “This is my revenge. Right here, this lovely career I have been blessed with. I have healthy children. You know, I have a really happy life and, to me, it’s like, ‘Well, look at me now girls’.”
