Rosie: I was bullied at school

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is still unsure about her acting abilities

Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has revealed she was bullied about her looks at school and that none of the boys wanted to go out with her.

The model, who takes on her first acting role in the next Transformers film, told GQ that she was picked on by her classmates.

She said: "I got teased because of my lips. I used to get called T** Lips - because I had big lips but no breasts."

Rosie went on: "And then I was called Kipper Lips. There was this big group of girls that was Devon's answer to Mean Girls, and they would run into the bathroom shouting 'I'm going to f***ing get you, Lips! See you on the school bus.' Boys didn't really go out with me. I had one proper boyfriend while at school."

The 24-year-old added that she was still insecure about her acting abilities, and is bracing herself for bad reviews.

She said: "I don't know if I can act yet. It's too early. Do I think I'm going to be the next Meryl Streep? No."
