Naomie Harris "hated" school because she was bullied.
The 34-year-old actress – who was brought up only by her mother, who fell pregnant when she was just 18 years old – was singled out by her peers and bullied over her "nerdy" ways.
She said: "I hated school. I didn't want to go to school.
"I don't know why I was bullied. I was quite shy and skinny. Very nerdy and very bookwormish. I think I was just a target."
The 'First Grader' star went on to study social and political science at Britain's prestigious Cambridge University but cried "every day" because she hated the experience so much.
She admitted in an interview with the Independent newspaper: "I felt so lonely. There was only one other black person in my year. I cried every day."
Despite her problems growing up, Naomie was never tempted to go off the rails.
She said: "I never felt the need to. It's funny. My brother and sister are the same. They're like, 'Why would you do that?'
"None of us, as a family, drink. None of us smoke. We're not brought up with it. To us, it seems a bit strange why people would want to do those things."
