"I wasn't in the popular crowd. There was a really popular girl at school and I was obsessed with her. I mean you would go to jail for that stuff today," Theron says with a laugh. "I was in tears one day because I couldn't sit next to her."
She also says she was bullied by her classmates for her glasses and not having the perfect haircut and clothes.
"I actually got a lot of the mean girl stuff from the ages of 7 to 12. I was pretty much a mess in primary school," she admits. "But I got that out of my system by the time I got to high school and was more immune to all of that stuff."
