Spanish actress Penelope Cruz was once ridiculed in front of her classmates by her teacher for being skinny.

The Vanilla Sky beauty, now one of the most lusted after women in the world and dating hunk Matthew Mcconaughey, was bullied by her classmates and teachers at her Madrid high school due to her slim frame.

Cruz says, "A teacher mocked me in front of the whole class. She said, 'I wouldn't say Penelope is thin. I'd say she is a bag of bones.'"
