Eva Mendes was made fun of for being skinny
Eva Mendes found her teen years really challenging, she shared “I was a gawky, skinny girl with big teeth and that made me an easy target,” Mendes told The Daily Mail. “I had two bullies and they tortured me all through junior high school. At the time I couldn’t understand why they kept taunting me. Only later could I see that I was showing them my fear and that’s what they were pouncing on.”
