Taylor Schilling’s Talks Her ‘Painful’ School Days

resizedimageTaylor Schilling‘s talks her ‘painful’ school days. You may nest know her for her role as Piper Chapman in the series Orange Is the New Black and she says it was a bad time for her as she had been singled out by some of her own classmates just because of her appearance, finding it hard, saying growing up was ”tough”. She said:

It was tough at home, and it was tough at school… And my experience was painful, so painful. There was a period of time I had very short hair, and I had glasses, and I was very tall for my age.”

But as new days have come around, the twenty nine year old Argo actress is much more
comfortable with herself, and is happy not to feel ”bound” by her appearance and thinks she has better things to ”offer the world” than her looks. She said:

”I don’t feel bound by my face or my body. I don’t feel like that’s the biggest gift I have to offer the world. I feel like there are more parts of me to offer than that.”

The star, who plays Chapman in ‘Orange is the New Black’ and finds the role ”liberating” because she wears a prison-issue orange jumpsuit for most of her scenes. She explained to the new edition of Allure magazine:

”It’s totally liberating. There’s freedom in not having to make it about how my jeans fit or what my boobs look like in a top. All I have to do now is play.”

    Love that show! Interesting to learn that she was singled out for her looks when she was younger. I never would have guessed it.
