Charlize Theron about those who "f***ed" her up in school
The 36-year-old actress was never popular when she was younger and unsuccessfully tried to befriend one of the most well-liked people in her class and Charlize revealed she recently ran into her childhood peer with surprising results.
She told the Daily Mirror newspaper: "I was pretty much a mess after primary school. There was a really popular girl at school and I was obsessed with her. You`d go to jail for that stuff today, I was in tears one day because I couldn`t sit next to her.
"Then three weeks ago I`m in London shooting a film. I was in a fitting and this girl goes, `Oh I know Charlize.` And it was the girl that f***ed me up in primary school who now lives kind of a sad life."
Charlize has gained more confidence with age and although many actresses in their 30s feel the need to resort to cosmetic surgery, she hopes she won`t succumb to the surgeon`s knife.
She said: "This is what I wake up with every morning so I`d better be comfortable with it. When I was younger I felt I had to prove to everybody I could do the job.
"I am 36 and loving it. I wouldn`t want to go back to my twenties. Some people have Botox and that`s great. But hopefully I`ll be OK without it."
