Actress found it hard to keep friends

Hayden Panettiere was bullied at school for being an actress.

The Heroes star regularly used to miss lessons to shoot US soap One Life To Live – and her classmates resented it.

‘I was tortured, emotionally tortured by these girls,’ Hayden, 19, tells Details.

‘Every time I came back from filming, it would be me trying to find my way back into the clique. And they weren’t having it.

‘I remember hearing in first grade, “Oh, why does she get to skip school?” It wasn’t like I suddenly started feeling different. I always knew that I was.’
