Zooey Deschanel speaks out on bullying

To onlookers, Zooey Deschanel seems to have it all: a successful movie career, a brand new hit TV series and a musical career that's going from strength to strength.

However in a recent interview with Allure magazine, the New Girl star revealed that she was badly bullied at school.

"Girls [would] spit in my face,"she said. "People were so mean to me, I'd cry every day."

The star also spoke about her kooky image and her signature hair cut.

"I'm bangs and eyes," she said. "It's who I am. There have been periods when I've grown my bangs out, but I always cut them back, so it's like, why go through the trouble?"

On her weight, 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."

Despite her high flying career, the 31-year-old actress and musician is keeping her feet firmly on the ground.

"'It' girl is supposed to be something that only lasts a certain amount of time," she said.

"They keep calling me an 'It' girl and at this point it makes me laugh, because they've done that so many times: 'You're it', 'You're not it'.

"What is 'It'?"
