London: Zooey Deschanel has revealed that she had a very tough childhood in terms of fitting in with the other kids.

The 33-year-old actress told Cosmopolitan magazine that people really teased her and it was really bad, as nothing could be as hard as middle school, the Daily Express reported.

She said that there were insecurities that she would have worked through a lot faster if she had certain tools and could have connected with certain people earlier.
