Claire Danes developed twitch as result of bullying
Actress CLAIRE DANES developed an involuntary muscle twitch after she was tortured by bullies at school.
The Homeland star "lived in constant fear" of being picked on by her classmates and insists one girl in particular made her life hell.
She tells Britain's GQ magazine, "There was one troubled girl who would get very excited about the idea of torturing me. I did struggle. In junior high I really struggled. It was just agony, truly. I lived in constant fear. I got a twitch because of it, and then I just removed myself from any normal social situations."
Danes regained her confidence and admits she was relieved to realize that not all women are cruel.
She adds, "I could truly have gone through life thinking that women were these venomous creatures. Turns out, they're not."
