ellen: you also were bullied
armie: I was, yeah
ellen: were you this tall? there’s no way you were this tall.
armie: no, I was not. sometimes I wish I was back then. no, I was bullied in junior high. it was…I had just moved here from another country, I looked very different. I was really tanned, I had really long hair. And when I first moved here, you know, McDonald’s immediately became my favorite restaurant and, you know, I started to put on a little weight. I had to wear, like, braces and a headgear. I had an overbite. It was a bad combination of everything and kids on junior high really noticed. there probably wasn’t a night in 6th or 7th grade were I wasn’t fighting tears while going to sleep. I didn’t want to go to school any day, I didn’t want to make it thought the night. I stopped doing my homework, I stopped caring.
Here's the video:
If you are a teen who's being bullied, check out It Gets Better: Coming Out, Overcoming Bullying, and Creating a Life Worth Living edited by Dan Savage. This book focuses on LGBTQ teens but the words are for everyone... It Gets Better.
On another note: Did you know Armie Hammer is only 24 years old? I didn't... he gives off the vibe of an older guy... maybe it's his height? Or he just has a mature face? Anyway, I like him... I like him a lot.
