Fantastic Four actress says girl gangs forced her to toughen up
Jessica Alba has spoken out about the school tyrants who targeted her as a child.
‘I was getting beaten up every day by different gangs of girls. At one point I had to be escorted to my classes,’ she says.
The 27-year-old says the harassment escalated after she began her acting career.
‘When I went back to school after making my first film Camp Nowhere, suddenly my friends weren’t my friends any more,’ she tells S Magazine.
‘They started calling me names and saying I was after their boyfriends.’
But she was determined not to let the bullies hold her back. ‘Looking back, I do think it made me tougher,’ she says.
