Since celebrities seem like they have the most glamorous lives ever, it may be hard to believe that they were once normal people. That’s right. Before finding fame, a ton of your favorite stars walked the halls of their hometown schools. And although they seem pretty confident now, some of them even had to deal with their share of insecurities, mean girls and bullies.

Take Sofia Carson, for example. The Descendants actress recently admitted exclusively to J-14 that she didn’t have the easiest time during school.

“I didn’t feel cool by any means growing up,” she told us. “I was a nerd in school. I wore little glasses, always had my hair up in a ponytail, was very clumsy and loved to sing and dance. I just never felt like I belonged. I got bullied quite a bit. There was a group of mean girls who always picked on me. They thought I was weird and they used to make fun of me.”

And things got so bad that the actress revealed she had to change schools.

“I felt very insecure during that time,” Sofia continued. “It was really hard for me to deal with everything. In seventh grade, I left that school and ended up going to a different one.”

Wow, how horrible is that? And it turns out, she’s not the only one. Stars like Taylor Swift, Shawn Mendes, Ariana Grande, Miley Cyrus, Demi Lovato and more have all also opened up about being bullied, and our hearts are breaking for them.
