Mayim Bialik is opening up on her come-up in Hollywood as a young child performer and revealed that she felt “different” from others growing up.
“I don’t know if I felt normal growing up,” the “Big Bang Theory” alum, 45, told Yahoo! Entertainment. “But I don’t think that had to do with the fact that I was a child actor — I think that I came from a really unusual family. So nothing felt normal for me. I always felt different.”
The “Jeopardy!” guest host pressed that she felt like an outsider growing up in the public eye as a young actress.
“Being on television definitely … made me feel like more of an outsider,” she explained. “Being in the public eye is definitely abnormal. But there was a lot about my life that was still normal: I was still treated like a normal kid who had to go to school, and do my chores and be picked on by my brother.”
