In a candid new interview, Gabby Douglas tells Oprah Winfrey that she wanted to quit her gymnastics training, at times, due to taunting from bullies.

“I felt I was being bullied and isolated from the group,” the 16-year-old gold medalist, appearing on Oprah’s Next Chapter, said. “Just, they treated me, not how they treated their other teammates.”

“Was it was a sense of ‘You’re different and we’re gonna make you feel that way’?” Oprah asked Gabby, who replied, “Yes.”

Other stars who have opened up about being bullied include Lady Gaga, Dakota Fanning, Emma Watson, Christina Hendricks and Tracy Morgan.
