The 24-year-old has won over TV audiences as the gorgeous star of Vampire Diaries.
But Nina insists she didn’t always feel beautiful and was teased about being “chunky” when she was a kid.
"I had a couple of awkward stages… I had a chunky face. I had a phase where I cut my hair like a boy,” she told E! News.
“Kids will find anything to pick on you for whether it's true or not because it makes them feel better and bigger and it isn't until you're the victim that you realise that it's not fun and it's not cool… Until you learn, you can hurt a lot of people."
Nina acknowledges she has moved on since being taunted.
And she credits her glam squad with making sure she now always looks her best.
"Now we have hair and makeup. I pay professionals. But you didn't have professionals when you were grade three,” she mused.
