Kate Winslet has finally gotten her revenge on her childhood bullies.

The actress told "Today's" Billy Bush that she was bullied by girls at her school when she was a teenager.

"I was kind of bullied when I was younger, actually at school," she explained. "For being chubby, you know, I had girls who were envious of me because I was acting a little bit as a teenager."

But now the 40-year-old is a succesful movie star and feels "blessed."

She added, "This is my revenge. This right here, this lovely career I have been blessed with. I have healthy children. You know, I have a really happy life and, to me, it's like, 'Well, look at me now girls!'"
