Before They Were Famous: Models Who Were Bullied Because Of Their Looks

Looking at a long-limbed, glossy-haired, flawless faces on the covers of fashion magazines, it's hard to believe that models and Average Joe or Josephine are from the same species.

But believe it or not, under all that hair, make-up and fancy clothing (or none at all, depending on the shoot), models are people just like the rest of us.

Yup. They eat, sleep, do number twos. They suffer from crippling insecurities (Miranda Kerr said so) and have even been bullied.

Yes, bullied.

It's hard to believe that anyone could ever be mean about the most super of all supermodels Cindy Crawford or criticise Rosie Huntington-Whiteley's signature pout, but these beauties (and many more) have confessed to being bullied by others on account of their looks.
