Maddie Ziegler Opens Up About Being Bullied For Her 'Bad Teeth'

Maddie Ziegler is well on her way to becoming an all-out movie star — but even she struggled with bullies when she was in school.

“I have been bullied,” the 15-year-old Sister actress revealed to Today in an interview.

“A lot of girls think my life has been perfect. But when I was in third grade, I had really bad teeth. I still have big teeth. I had a very big gap. This boy walked up to me. He pulled apart a fork and made it a really big gap and said, ‘This is what your teeth look like.’ People bullied me for that. It’s not OK.”

“It made me super-insecure,” Maddie continued. “I’ve learned to love (my teeth). I learned to love my flaws. It was hard. Once I started the reality show, everyone started loving me the second I was on the show. The girls who before were like, ‘You’re ugly,’ as soon as they saw me on the show were like, ‘Let’s be best friends.’ That’s not OK. I’m not stupid. If you’re mean, it will show through.”

Bullying is never okay. We’re glad that Maddie is opening up about her past and showing her fans that bullying can happen to anyone.
