The Daily Shuffle: Charlize Theron Was Bullied In High School

charlize theronYou’d never know it now, but the stunning Charlize Theron was not the most popular kid in her high school. In fact, her classmates constantly teased and bullied her for her geeky persona. The actress confided to People magazine, “I wore really nerdy glasses because I was blind as could be and the boys didn’t like [me]. I didn’t have any boyfriends, but lots of crushes.” It’s hard to believe this Hollywood beauty wasn’t always the object of every boys affection, but according to Theron, she had a really hard time fitting in — not just with boys, but with fellow girls as well. “I wasn’t in the popular crowd. There was a really popular girl at school and I was obsessed with her. I mean you would go to jail for that stuff today. I was in tears one day because I couldn’t sit next to her,” she said. Oh the joys of teenage angst. – People

Angelina Jolie may not be as goth as she once used to be, but she still has dark tendencies. During her Sunday night appearance on 60 Minutes, the actress confessed if she wasn’t acting, she would probably be a funeral director. The starlet admitted to once giving some serious thought about the gloomy profession, saying, “It sounds like this very strange, eccentric, dark thing to do but in fact I lost my grandfather and was very upset with his funeral. How somebody passes and how family deals with this passing and what death is should be addressed in a different way,” adding, “If this whole acting thing didn’t work out that was going to be my path.” – US

Shockingly enough, some celebrities really do want some privacy — especially Scarlett Johansson. In an interview with Interview magazine, the actress revealed that while she considers social networking an “amazing tool” to raise awareness and share information, she finds the idea of advertising her daily activities unnecessary. She told the magazine, “I don’t have a Facebook or a Twitter account, and I don’t know how I feel about this idea of, ‘Now, I’m eating dinner, and I want everyone to know that I’m having dinner at this time,’ or ‘I just mailed a letter and dropped off my kids.'” Johansson additionally acknowledged how surprised she is that many of her fellow celebs have Twitter accounts, but states that it’s just not something she wants to deal with, saying, “I’d rather that people had less access to my personal life. If I could keep it that way, I’d be a happy lady.” Sorry Facebook, Scarlett doesn’t “like” you. – Access Hollywood, Interview
