Emma Roberts' bullying hell

Emma Roberts was made fun of at school for being pale.

The 'American Horror Story' star has revealed she "begged" her mother to let her get a spray tan for the Teen Choice Awards in 2005 because she'd always been ridiculed by her school peers about her skin .

She told Allure magazine: "I remember I begged my mom to get a spray tan for [the Teen Choice Awards in 2005] because I always got made fun of in school for being pale. Now I see those pictures and I'm like, 'I look like I have a spray tan.' But at the time I thought I looked so good!"

Commenting on another old photo of her in 2010, she added: "My hair was way too dark. I don't like my hair that dark because I'm too pale and I end up looking like the Addams family."

Meanwhile, the 24-year-old beauty previously posed for a campaign and refused to have her photographs airbrushed and admits she was incredibly "nervous" ahead of the shoot.

She said: "Yes, of course! I was so nervous. When I first walked out on the set, I was wearing one of the cute Aerie bralettes and underwear with this cute plaid blanket, and I remember feeling excited as I was getting dressed and listening to music.

"But when I walked out, I had to do everything in my power to not run back in the room. For the first 20 minutes, I was panicking."
