My name is Kate Torgovnick. Somewhere circa sixth grade, a guy in one of my classes took to calling me Kate “Turtle Dick.” I don’t know why, exactly. It doesn’t make that much sense nor does it sound that close to the original. Still, I think it’s kind of funny, probably because it never really caught on and didn’t become something I heard constantly in the hallways. So I feel kinda bad that Hayley Atwell, the co-star of “Captain America,” didn’t have such luck in being able to laugh off a nickname. She recently revealed that she was given a much nastier name in her schoolgirl days—Hayley “Fatwell.” She explained to The Guardian, “My real self, the self I have always been from a child, is a loner and nerd, slightly overweight, with a very heavy fringe. I was ‘Hayley Fatwell’ at school.” [Huffington Post] After the jump, more stars who had to deal with meansies nicknames. And if you were given one, share it in the comments section.
