Zoe Saldana was bullied as a child for speaking English.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star moved to the Dominican Republic when she was nine following the death of her father, Aridio, and she was bullied because she used English words rather than talk in Spanish.

Zoe - whose mother Asalia Nazario is Puerto Rican - told Balance magazine: "It was a very traumatising time for me because I didn't know how to stand up for myself. I was never equipped, trained or taught to defend myself. My mother never raised me believing that I was different, so the moment me and my sisters started getting attacked, shock was the first reaction.

"Bullies can reach a depth within you that may cause irreparable damage. There were years that I felt ashamed of myself, thinking, 'I should have known better, I should have always stood up for myself.' "

Zoe Saldana has experienced her "fair share" of cyberbullying.

The 'Guardians of the Galaxy' star isn't immune to receiving hate online but won't let that stop her from sharing things with her followers.

She said: "Of course, social media, as we all know, has a dark side. Cyberbullying is a growing epidemic (I've experienced my fair share). But no matter what happens, or what the reaction may be, I am not going to stop sharing. That's not to say that I haven't learned a thing or two along the way.

"I am working to reshape the way I want to say things, and I know how important it is to choose your words wisely. The truth is, we're living in a soundbite era. People aren't interested in the conversation of something, they just want the headline of it. So that means that I just have to be a little wiser in the way I express myself."
