5 Celebrities Who Hated High School
Not enjoying their years in school, these 5 celebs all say they hated their high school experience. Some were bullied and felt as though their time was torturous because of what they had to put up with. Others just didn’t feel as though they belonged – they were outsiders and didn’t have many friends at the time. They’ve all moved on to become huge stars but at the time, these 5 stars were all quietly waiting to finally get out of high school because they hated their time there. Looking back, here is what they have to say on their memories of their high school years.
Amy didn’t like high school and was very moody throughout: ”I hated high school. It was classic teenager stuff – I was a loner. I would bring a book and read at lunch. I was really moody.”
Kristen didn’t like high school because she didn’t relate: “I was glad to leave school. I couldn’t relate to kids my own age. They are mean, they don’t give you a chance. I think the social aspects, I haven’t missed out on. I am around people constantly. I meet hundreds of people at work. Once you have done with school, you realised it’s just a smaller version of life.”
Michael Buble went to a school reunion even though he hated his school experience: “It was the first reunion I’d ever been to, so I was really nervous. Going back made me realise that my high school experience wasn’t great. At the time I actually really hated it. There were bullies and I seemed to have to fight a lot. I never thought that things would change. I didn’t really fit into any group. In one of my old yearbook pictures I’ve got a mullet and two pierced ears. I’d wear denim jackets with ‘I love Ac Dc’ and ‘I love Metallica’ written on them. I guess some people saw a weakness in that. (At the reunion) I looked at these people, some of whom I didn’t really like back then, and they had all turned out to be good people – good dads and good mums. But what did I expect? They’re almost 40 now. They’re not children anymore.”
Sarah Michelle Geller says she was bullied and found it to be a difficult period: “I’ve always been the nerdy, geekish outsider who still remembers how a lot of my classmates used to torture me.”
Victoria was often picked on and was miserable: “They were literally picking things up out of the puddles and throwing them at me. I just stood there, on my own. No one was with me. I didn’t have any friends. People would push me around, say they were going to beat me up after school, chase me. It was miserable, my whole schooling, miserable. I tried to be friends with people, but I didn’t fit in. So I kept myself to myself.”
