Nowadays, it is hard to imagine Jacqueline MacInnes Wood being anything but Ms. Popularity.
The Bold & Beautiful Emmy winner epitomizes the title of her soap;
She is so articulate and witty that she is a better conversation starter than a glass of wine.
Moreover, she has a husband and three picture-perfect children to live inside a frame.
However, "when I was in high school, I was bullied," she tells THOUSIF Inc.
It was no fun. However, Jacqueline MacInnes Wood has seen the silver lining in even that dark cloud in her past.
"Honestly, I feel like it was a godsend because that gave me some resiliency and grit," she says.
"Not only that, but it lent meaning to her family manifesto."
"My mom would always say, 'No one can ever define you."
"Of course, that can be very difficult when you are going through those obstacles and difficult times," she adds.
"So my mom saying that at a very young age started me off on the right foot."
It certainly helped Wood when she got into showbiz, as jam-packed as it is with rejection.
"When I got into this career, I was able to handle a lot more,"
"I always start my day off in gratitude. I was not always like that," she admits.
"You know, you have moments where you are like, 'OK, this sucks."
"However, I constantly remind myself to be grateful for the little things."
