Zooey: I was bullied at school

Zooey Deschanel has revealed she was unhappy growing up as she was bullied at school.

The star of Channel 4 sitcom New Girl appears on the cover of Allure magazine and revealed she wasn't always as popular as she is now.

Zooey revealed: "Girls spat in my face. People were so mean to me, I'd cry every day."

The 31-year-old actress is now a Hollywood star, but she confessed she still doesn't like to risk reading mean things on the internet.

She said: "I can't go on Gawker. I actually think the writing is really funny, but there is a chance that somebody is undercutting me."

Zooey - who is currently divorcing her husband Benjamin Gibbard - likes to get out and about to cheer herself up after a break-up.

She said: "I'd probably just go get out of my house. If I'm sad, I listen to happy music."

The (500) Days Of Summer actress revealed she tries to stay healthy by eating vegetables, grains and proteins, but insists she does not feel under pressure to stay super-slim.

She said: "Some people around me, they're like 89 pounds.

"I'm not going to say I'm a big girl. I'm a very small person but I'm a healthy weight. That might be a little weird for Hollywood."
