List of Famous People Who Were Bullied, loosely ranked by fame and popularity. Bullying is a problem that has been around forever, but seems to get worse every year. Many successful people have triumphed over their bullies by having successful careers. If you are being bullied, just remember that high school is just a moment in time and life gets better.

Who is the most famous person who was bullied? Jessica Alba tops our list. Although she may be one of Hollywood's most sought after actresses today, growing up Jessica Alba faced some pretty tough bullying. The “Sin City” star was picked on for being awkward and having bucked teeth. Other beautiful actresses who were bullied in school include, Megan Fox, Mila Kunis, Emma Watson and Sandra Bullock.

Famous men have been the victims of bullying as well. Presidents Bill Clinton and Barack Obama were both bullied as children. Comedians Howard Stern and Chris Rock developed a sense of humor to keep their bullies at bay and Chester Bennington and Fred Durst joined bands. Film-maker Steven Spielberg used his experience with bullying as inspiration for making films about outsiders.
