Los Angeles – Actress Jessica Chastain opened up in a recent interview that she endured bullying from classmates in school while growing up. As reported by People, “The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby” star revealed to Glamour magazine that she was taunted practically everyday about her looks.

Chastain is quoted as stating to Glamour in its November cover story, “I was told every day at school that I was ugly. And that no one wanted to be my friend. The most cruel things… If I can do anything to help young girls and to be a cheerleader for people who sometimes have low self-esteem, I want to do that.”

The 37-year-old actress who landed her first movie role in 2008 also stated of acting in films at a later age in life than many start off, “If I was 19 and I had the attention that I’m getting now, I would have just said stupid things. I would have partied more… All these expensive dinners and people giving me champagne? All these stupid things that we criticize 19-year-olds for doing when they’re famous, I would have done.”

Chastain is set to star in three films set to be released in 2015.
