Zooey Deschanel - Zooey Deschanel isn't bitter about school bullies

Zooey Deschanel thinks people who are wealthy or beautiful at school struggle later in life.

The 'New Girl' actress was bullied at the Crossroads school in Santa Monica, California, but isn't bitter about the people who were mean to her, because she thinks they find it hard to relate when they grow up.

She said: ''A lot of people I knew who didn't struggle, who maybe came from a lot of money or were really pretty - those people actually have a harder time as adults in a way. They don't even understand what it's like to not be pretty. I'm not saying it's good, I don't think people should be mean to each other, but I think it made me stronger.''

Zooey, 33, recalled how one popular girl once spat in her face, but she has even forgiven her.

She told British Marie Claire magazine: ''I was talking to her, and she didn't want me to. I honestly did nothing. I just remember walking to me locker and wiping the spit off my face, so humiliated. I've forgiven her now, I just don't forget.''
