Michelle Trachtenberg Recalls How Cruel Classmates Used to Bully Her on Valentine's Day Over Fame

Nickelodeon alum Michelle Trachtenberg recalls how "cruel" classmates used to bully her on Valentine's Day over her fame.


On Friday, February 14, former child star Michelle Trachtenberg detailed how her 'cruel' classmates used to bully her on Valentine's Day over her fame.

"Back in my day all the kids had to write a bulls*** Valentine's Day card to everyone in the class. I never got one on purpose," the 34-year-old Daytime Emmy nominee revealed to her social media followers.


"No one ever gave me one and they thought I didn't need the attention. The kids and staff all laughed and thought everyone else should get one."

Michelle began her acting career at age 3 in order to help her bank manager mother Lana and fiber-optics engineer father Michael "pay the bills" in Sheepshead Bay, Brooklyn.

"The kids were cruel. There is no need to harp on the past. But I still have scars from being thrown down stairs and slammed into lockers head first,' Trachtenberg recalled.

"I write this to every child, teen, person, out there who is bullied. You are something. Do not put your value in someone else. Not letting them win, is your win."

The Gossip Girl alum then gave a shout-out to three teachers - Mrs. Vollman, Mrs. Lighter, and Mr. Beckman - who protected her and sheltered her in their classrooms "so kids wouldn't throw their food at me."

Michelle reportedly attended Isaac Asimov PS-99 and I.S. 98 Bay Academy in Brooklyn before moving to Sherman Oaks where she attended Notre Dame High School.

Trachtenberg also Insta-storied a sardonic comic about couples on the romantic holiday.

The Human Kind Of star's most recent acting gig was in June when she parodied her character Harriet the Spy in Adult Swim's Robot Chicken, which was created by her former Buffy the Vampire Slayer co-star Seth Green.


It's been 24 years since Michelle made her big-screen debut as the inquisitive 11-year-old in the Nickelodeon Movie, which earned $26.6M at the box office. Prior to the movie, Michelle starred in Nickelodeon's The Adventures of Pete & Pete.


Trachtenberg was last seen sparkling in a rose-gold sequin Mark Zunino gown at the 28th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Awards Viewing Party in West Hollywood last Sunday.
