Controversial documentary "Bully" has finally been premiered in Hollywood on Monday night, March 26. The special screening event taking place at the Grauman's Chinese Theatre was supported by a number of familiar celebrities, including Victoria Justice, Joel McHale and Wilmer Valderrama.
The "Victorious" star opted to go with a casual look in a striped blazer that she paired with a pink shirt and denims. In a red carpet interview with E! News, the brunette beauty showed her support to the film as saying, "When I saw this movie, I was so emotional, I was so moved and I just wanted to give all the kids a huge hug because they shouldn't have to go through this and it's not acceptable."
McHale, meanwhile, looked more formal in a sleek suit. The "Spider-Man 2" actor shared that he once fell victim to bullying. He admitted, "I was bullied and then I grew very quickly in seventh grade and the guys that used to bully me no longer did that."
As for Valderrma, the former "Royal Pains" star oozed masculinity in a black leather jacket that he paired with denims and boots. Commenting on the message of the movie, the actor said, "We have to tell the kids that it's OK to speak up."
Other celebrities who were spotted attending the premiere of the much-talked-about documentary were Giuliana Rancic who looked sexy in a leather jacket and skintight pants, Jennifer Freeman who kept it simple in a white overall, and Rachel G. Fox who looked pretty in a gray dress. Jason Kennedy, Mackinlee Waddell and Bianca Lawson were also snapped supporting the special screening.
Directed by Lee Hirsch, "Bully" follows five kids and families over the course of a school year. The stories include two families who have lost children to suicide and a mother awaiting the fate of her 14-year-old daughter who has been incarcerated after bringing a gun on her school bus.
The movie has grabbed the headlines ever since The Weinstein Company lost appeal to secure a PG-13 rating in early February. Weinstein threatened to leave the MPAA and organized petition signature drives by student to put pressure on the MPAA. Amid the protracted rating dispute, the studio announced on Monday, March 26 that it will still release the film in the U.S. cinemas on March 30 as an unrated movie.
