Rosie Huntington-Whiteley recounts bullying ordeal

British model/actress Rosie Huntington-Whiteley has opened up about the bullying she suffered as a child, insisting schoolyard teasing made her life hell.

The 24 year old grew up in the quiet rural county of Devon in south-west England, and admits she was fiercely criticized for her looks before she found fame as a model.

She tells GQ magazine, "I was really teased about the way I looked at school. I think most models will tell you a similar story. I got teased because of my lips. I used to get called 'T*t Lips' - because I had big lips but no breasts. And then I was called 'Kipper Lips'.

"There was a big group of girls that was Devon's answer to (2004 movie) Mean Girls, and they would storm the bathrooms shouting, 'I'm going to f**king deck (hit) you, Lips! See you on the school bus'. And boys didn't really go out with me."

Huntington-Whiteley recently topped Maxim magazine's coveted Hot 100 list for 2011.
