Zooey Deschanel has spoken out about how she was bullied at school.

The 31-year-old actress/singer, who is part of duo She & Him, said she wasn't very popular whilst growing up.

In an interview with Allure magazione, she said: ''Girls [would] spit in my face. People were so mean to me, I'd cry every day.'

She added: I can't go on Gawker. 'I actually think the writing is really funny but there is a chance that somebody is undercutting me

Last month Zooey Deschanel filed for divorce from Death Cab For Cutie's Ben Gibbard following their split last year.

The actress filed for divorce on December 27 2011 with the Los Angeles County Superior Court.

The pair – who tied the knot in December 2009 – decided to part ways after two years of marriage due to 'irreconcilable differences".

When Love Goes Wrong - live

  • Love doesn't exist, this was well proven last month when veteran art-rock couple Thurston Moore and Kim Gordon announced their split after being married since 1984. And if their band Sonic Youth are forced to break up under the strain of divorce proceedings between the frontman and frontwoman then Good Music will cease to exist too. RIP Love. RIP Good Music.

  • Arctic Monkeys singer Alex Turner and the similarly-named TV presenter and model Alexa Chung broke it off earlier this year. The message boards full of heated debate of which of them pulls off 'festival-chic' better must have finally got to them.

  • Death Cab singer Ben Gibbard and actress-come-She & Him vocalist Zooey Deschanel have announced their separation. Rumours that it was due to Ben's anniversary present of growing the curtains of his hair an extra three inches for every year of their marriage has been proven false.

  • Laura Marling and Marcus Mumford ended their relationship around Christmas 2010, causing massive inconvenience for whoever arranged the table layout at that year's BRIT Awards.

  • Avril Lavigne split up with pop-rocker Deryck Whibley in 2009. I guess she's now going to have to find some(forty)one else.

  • A golden oldie: the romance between Bob Dylan and Joan Baez would only be rivalled in coolness today if Karen O married Julian from The Strokes. Let's hope that never happens, or the whole blog world would implode.

  • A weird-dressing, funny man who has somehow been able to blag a career: I wonder who Katy Perry was always destined to go for after dumping Gym Class Heroes frontman Travis McCoy Oh, that's right - Russell Brand.

  • When Blur singer Damon Albarn and Elastica frontwoman Justine Frischmann got together in 1995, it seems likely that they must have spent their pre-tour nights playing Britpop Top Trumps to determine who each can have as support acts. "You can have Suede, if I can get Pulp". The couple split in 1998.

  • Britney and Justin made MTV executives' wildest fantasies a reality when they pursued their childhood romance in the public eye during the early 00s. After splitting, Justin has gone on to have a success pop career, starred in high profile films and has dated Cameron Dias. Britney, on the other hand, shaved her head and went a bit mental. They should've got a pre-nup!

  • East Coast rapper Nas split with 'Milkshake' singer Kelis in 2009. We are told that it wasn't because he was jealous at the plural in her lyric "my milkshake brings all the boyS to the yard".

  • Newlyweds reality TV stars Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey split in 2005. I think it's safe to say that the world just hasn't been the same for us since.
