Christina Hendricks - Christina Hendricks was spat on at school
Christina Hendricks has revealed she was bullied by her fellow peers at school and was even spat on a few times.
Christina Hendricks was bullied at school.
The 39-year-old actress was tormented and even spat on by mean pupils after her family moved from Twin Falls in Idaho to Fairfax, Virginia, when she was 13.
Speaking to the Guardian newspaper, she said: ''We had a locker bay, and every time I went down there to get books out of my locker people would sit on top and spit at me, so I had to have my locker moved because I couldn't go in there...I felt scared in high school.
''It was like 'Lord of the Flies.' There was always some kid getting pummelled and people cheering.''
The 'Mad Men' star took refuge in the drama department and became a goth as a way of expressing her emotions and shielding herself from the bullies.
She explained: ''My parents would say, 'You're just alienating everyone. You'll never make any friends looking like that.' And I would say, 'I don't want those people to be my friends. I'm never going to be friends with the people who beat up a kid while everyone is cheering them on. I hate them.' ''
However, the flame-haired beauty has now become one of the most lusted-after women after she was named the sexiest woman in the world in a 2010 poll conducted by Esquire magazine.
