Michelle Trachtenberg has a message for her former high school bullies: eat your heart out, boys!

The Take Me Home Tonight actress, 25, told that she's thrilled with her super steamy March Maxim cover if only because it proves she's all grown up.

"I was horrifically tortured and bullied in school especially by the boys," the Gossip Girl star said at Friday's Rebecca Taylor fashion show in NYC. "They made a point to always say how flat-chested I was and then all of a sudden one day I woke up and had boobs. So I'm really looking forward for them to see it!"

In fact, Trachtenberg said she thought about dropping a not-so-subtle hint.

"I almost wish I can send them a note that says 'How you like me now, bro?'" she told Us. "Except that would mean I care too much."
