Unfortunately, malice is widespread, especially for those who appear in a “different” way than others. It is the case of Miriam Leone, actress appreciated first of all for her wit and skill, but also for her undeniable beauty. Beauty which, however, has not always been appreciated.
Indeed, the Sicilian’s physicality was “a problem” when she was little. Especially her face, characterized by thick eyebrows – also in vogue today – had been “targeted” by the young fellow villagers, who at the schools made her experience hardships, which fortunately today the actress has overcome:
I also felt different physically, they addressed me as if I were a foreigner. They made fun of me. In high school they told me that I was Elio delle Storie Tese. Today it’s fun because I’m an age.
