Hayden Panettiere has been in the entertainment business since she was less than a year old. You'd think landing plum roles in shows like One Life to Live and Ally McBeal would make a kid super popular, but such wasn't the case at the NY public school Panettiere once attended.
In an interview with Details, Hayden revealed that she was once bullied: "I was tortured, emotionally tortured by these girls. Every time I came back from filming, it would be me trying to find my way back into the clique. And they weren't having it."
No big deal - she regularly gets to play the popular kid, these days. Her upcoming role in I Love You, Beth Cooper has her back in a cheerleading uniform, but she's kind of over it. As jokingly told Zimbio, "I think I'm just going to start putting in my contract that I refuse to wear a cheerleading outfit for the rest of my career."
