Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria, who has made her face her fortune in recent years, has revealed she was teased about her appearance as a child.
The star, who has emerged as a red carpet darling with a string of lucrative deals with cosmetic companies, says her nickname growing up was "ugly duckling".
Longoria, who is in the midst of a promotional blitz for her new film Over My Dead Body, said: "I was the darkest one of my family. I was the only one with black hair and the only one with dark skin.
"All my sisters were light blondes with hazel eyes. They used to call me ugly duckling.
The 37-year-old told Channel 4's Richard and Judy: "I grew up without being beautiful so I kind of relied on my personality and my character.
"I kind of developed a sk*ll not to depend on anything superficial because I didn't have anything superficial to depend on."
