Justin was bullied in school

Justin Timberlake was bullied at school. The Shrek the Third star could identify with the animated character Artie he voices in the film, because he was a social outcast when he was young.

Justin told BANG Showbiz: "I grew up in Tennessee where you either play football or you don't do anything at all so I was a bit of a loner being interested in music. I was not cool. It was football or die! "I would come to school, and was bit of an outcast but I wasn't bullied too much, thank God. But if I could say one thing to the kids who didn't think I was cool back then it would be, 'Eat it.' "

The 26-year-old heartthrob, who is a noted pop singer also, is currently on a world tour promoting his new album 'FutureSex/LoveSounds', and is finding time between concerts to publicise the new 'Shrek' movie. Justin - who has a starring role in four films out this year - admits he is struggling to write any new tracks because of his hectic schedule. He explained: "It's hard to find time to write songs at the moment. I have to do it on the plane or on the bus in between shows. But I'm working on it."
