Celebrities are just like us! It looks like even actress Blake Lively was the victim of name calling while in school. The star appeared on Sesame Street and took to social media to share a super adorable pic that featured her alongside Big Bird.
As a way to relate to the character, Lively went ahead and revealed that when she was a kid, she would get teased a lot for having ‘yellow’ hair and being tall.
‘Still geeking out. Kids used to make fun of me back in elementary school by calling me Big Bird (because I was ‘too tall’ and had ‘yellow’ hair). Here’s to making best buddies with the things that once hurt you,’ she captioned the photo she shared on Instagram.
The actress made her debut on Sesame Street not too long ago and posted a silly gif that showed her dancing with a few Muppets, writing in the caption: ‘Finally. I have friends.’
We bet you never imagined someone like Balke Lively went through bullying when she was young.
After all, the Hollywood star is an accomplished actress who is also married to Deadpool’s Ryan Reynolds.
That and the fact that she managed to lose no less than 61 pounds after welcoming her second daughter Ines back in September of 2016, makes her seem untouchable.
And now she is even getting shout-outs from the Sesame Street gang on social media! That has got to be the coolest thing ever, right?
‘Sunny days on Sesame Street with our friend, @blakelively! Thanks for visiting us!’ the show’s official Twitter account posted.
Not to mention that Big Bird must be the coolest out of the bunch considering he hangs out with people like Michelle Obama, Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon and more huge celebs!
