Jessica Chastain is undoubtedly a beautiful woman, but it seems her peers didn’t always think so. Like many kids, she was bullied a lot for her appearance and was apparently called ugly every day, as she revealed in a new interview with Glamour.

“[As a child] 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.”

Chastain also admitted that she was happy not to have grown up in the Hollywood spotlight:

“I would have been a disaster…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.”

Ha, good point. Who wouldn’t get involved in that stupid shit? At least it all seems to have worked out for her now!
