Kristen Stewart Was Too Cool for School

Celebuzz / September 8, 2009

And Kristen Stewart wonders why so many people find her off-putting.

The 19-year-old Twilight star admits in a recent interview that she hated high school, because she couldn’t stand being around the other kids.

“I was glad to leave school. I couldn’t relate to kids my own age,” Stewart—who dropped out to focus on acting and continued her studies with a tutor—says. “They are mean, they don’t give you a chance. I think the social aspects, I haven’t missed out on. I am around people constantly. I meet hundreds of people at work. Once you have done with school, you realized it’s just a smaller version of life.”

Stewart adds that her classmates’ jealousy over her blossoming acting career didn’t help any.

“When I was there, I was never the type of girl to be walking around talking about acting, so I didn’t get a lot of hassle until someone found out. I was trying to play it down, but I definitely got, ‘Oh she’s such a b*tch.’ They’d never spoken to me, but instantly they were like, ‘You are so rude.’ I am not rude.”

No, just incredibly blunt at times.
