Tyra Banks bullied for thin frame
Los Angeles: Model Tyra Banks reveals she was bullied in school because she was so thin.
"When I was 11 years old, I grew three inches and lost 30 pounds in three months. So I went from being a mean bully, cute little chubby little girl to shooting up, weighing 98 pounds and just looking sick and frail," contactmusic.com quoted Banks as saying.
"I wasn`t sick, but people thought there was something wrong with me. I was the brunt of every joke, every bad thing. I hated my reflection in the mirror. I would try to stuff food down my throat to gain weight," she added.
The harsh memories still live with her.
"Even though I later gained weight and became a supermodel, that girl always lived inside of me and I know what that felt like," said the 38-year-old.
