Getting animated onstage (above) while speaking to an audience of about 12,000, the actress recalled the lingering trauma of being called names on a regular basis by her peers.
"I was always comparing myself to others. They called me ‘Blubber,' they teased me for wanting to act. Locked me in the cupboard and would laugh at me. I wasn't the prettiest and I was even told that I'd be lucky in my acting if I was happy to settle for the fat girl parts. I'd never let go of that, and they'd say, ‘You're just not what we're looking for, Kate.' This unkindness made me feel truly horrendous."
Calling her "blubber"??? That's beyond deplorable. But guess who's laughing now!

Pretty in polka dots!!
Jennifer Hudson was a performer at WE Day UK in London on Friday, and she rocked a retro-inspired look both on the carpet and on stage!
The musical maven wore a polka dotted pencil skirt with a flounced hem, which she paired with sexy red pumps and a plain white tee. Miz Hudson also incorporated a long black coat to ward off the cold — but she ditched it to perform!
The fit and pattern of her skirt definitely put out a retro vibe, as did her sassy heels and bright red pout.
While the look isn't as sexy as we've seen her go in the past, she looks pretty darling, don't U think???
