Lindsay Lohan: I was bullied as a teen

05 October 2012, 10:44

Los Angeles - Lindsay Lohan has revealed she was bullied in high school.

The 26-year-old actress has revealed she was targeted by her classmates for landing successful acting roles as a teenager and was also mocked about her dysfunctional family situation.

Lindsay took to her Twitter page and said: "I was actually bullied @ my public school when i would leave to film. Whenever I came back? girls & boys would call me names (sic).

"They would also mock me because of my home situation, when people found out that my father was in jail."

'I stuck it out for a while'

The tormenting got so bad that the actress who famously played a school misfit turned bully in teen comedy Mean Girls, decided to drop out of school in favour of home tutoring.

She soon added: "They would yell things, try to trip me & more. I moved to home-schooling instead. In 11th grade. I stuck it out for a while. (sic)"

The Liz & Dick actress' confession came after she was moved to tears by chat show host Katie Couric's interview with bullied 16-year-old Whitney Kropp, who was elected prom queen by her peers as a joke, and Lindsay took to Twitter to take a stand against bullying.

"@katiecouric I think what you did today on your show for#WhitneyKropp was lovely. It had me crying. I'd love to meet her.#stopbullying (sic)", she wrote.
