Kristen Stewart Was Too Cool for School

Kristen Stewart Was Too Cool for School-photo

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.

Readers, have your say in the comments section: Did Kristen Stewart make the right decision in dropping out of high school?

    Emma Watson is a better role model.

    I applaud her for being honest about her past. But with you guys glorifying her and whatnot - let's observe this for a second. She basically ran away from school because people were picking on her. So what is she trying to teach us? That dropping out of school is alright, just because you can't socialize?It's called "school" for a reason; you go there to acquire skills for a possible career. OK, so she's an actress now. Good for her, then. But different people have different routes in life. Socializing in school is merely a plus in high school. I've been made fun in school, but that doesn't stop me for taking advantage on my education and doing what I want. You guys have been blinded. Exactly. You have to learn to deal with it because its a part of life. Wherever you work or go to college or both, there will be people that may or may not like you for different reasons, basically, freedom of opinion, and you have to learn to deal with them and your own life constructively. There are always girls in school that people are jealous of or talk about for one reason or another, and they don't drop out and get a tutor..... geez.

    I guess if your parents will allow you to and then afford you a tutor like her hollywood dad can, but most of us have to stick it out whether we fit in with anyone or people like us or not. Suck it up and get to class, even if someone calls you a B or whatever. I think her advantage definitely was her daddy works in hollywood, and no I'm not jealous because I'm very proud of my parent's careers, they just did not let me skip out of school for other activities or because whoever liked or did not like me, too bad, that's how the world works.

    Better late than never. She got her GED when she was 19, last fall. Not too bad really when you consider some kids are held back or fail, either with learning problems or behavioral issues, but Kristen was working in movies. She's not my favorite in acting, but she seems really cool and sweet to her fans, a bit shy, but I was very shy when I was her age too. I agree with the comment above about staying off the weed, not a good example to the zillions of kids that idolize her. So, ditch that, keep smiling, being yourself and working hard.

    She's so right. I just get so pissed with that snobby whores who think they're all that. They don't even treat us like people. They treat like trash because they think they have the world in their hands. They're shallow and most of the time uglier than they think they are. Just because they show everything about their bodies they think everyone likes them but they only want to play with them... Kinda sorry for them...

    Yeah, I dropped out to be homeschooled because people were just mean. It was the best for me and I guess it's the best for her because she's doing just fine! The only con is being just a bit behind at times but you definitely learn everything you would've learned if you were in regular school.

    "One of the sexiest men in the world???!!" I think you're pushing it a little. That man that's she's NOT dating...is nowhere near sexy. She looks like a drug addict and he looks like her drug dealer. The point is- is that she is living a life that only people could dream off- so all this talk about people feeling sorry for her makes me scrach my head in confusion. People fail to understand that Kristen is NOT the girl next door. She is a multi-millionare that has accomplished alot in her life. People see photos of her in baggy hoodies and no make-up and think that this is a normal teenager. How many normal teenage girls get to hang out with Rob on a regular basis??? Obsessed Twi-fans only wish that these two are not together for their own messed up fantasy. Like they would ever have a shot in hell with Rob anyway, the though brings a smirk on my face.

    Noa...you are disgusting!...Kristin is only a girl. She dropped the school becauseshe found a sense on her life:BE AN ACTRESS!. Whydoes she need to go to school?. She has already a joB!....and about Robert : I don't think he is playing with her, even a blind moron can see he is in love with her. How do you know they have unprotected 'sex. Are you their sidetable?c'mon!!!!

    I think it was obviously the right choice to drop out to focus on acting b/c she's very successful now. She can always finish high school later if she hasn't already. She's lucky though - most people who might drop out of high school to pursue acting won't make it at all. My opinion about Kristin's acting, however, is.... why do people consider her such a good actress when she plays HERSELF in every movie? I haven't seen the one where she is Joan Jett, so maybe that'll be where she actually starts "acting." So far she's played a sullen, angsty teenager... too cool for school, as the article says. Someone tell me where to sign up for playing myself in movies and getting rich and famous.

    How can you feel sorry for her? she is a young millionare that travels the world, making movies, and is with one of the sexiest man in the world. All those people that gave her a hard time is highschool are the people that you really need to feel sorry for- because right now, they are flipping burgers somewhere still living at their parents house, while Kristen lives a life of a star.

    You guys are all brainwashed. She dropped out of high school because she was anti-social and got picked on. Get over it. Stop acting like she's a perfect savior because you are all nerdy and identify with her lack of friends and lack of social skills.She is not a good role model. She dropped out of high school. She smokes. She drinks. She is pale. She is in love with a man who wants nothing more to do with her than bi-monthly sexual romps when they are on set together. She murders puppies. Tila Tequila is a better role model. So true! She just has fans because they are to "in love" with her so they don't see all her flaws.

    I don't get how she has fans... I work at the amusement park where Adventureland was filmed and all everyone does is complain about how big off a snob she was when she filmed it. All my bosses tell us stories. I don't get how she gets jobs if she's difficult.

    What teens don't understand, is that high school is not real life. In highschool- popularity is super important, but when you are in college- no one gives a sh*t, you are in a class full of strangers that could care less about you. And if you graduate- then people still don't give a sh*t, people are too busy trying to pay bills and develope a pattern in their lives. Lesson- be yourself and develope who you want to be. All the petty everyday crap in high school won't help you in the long run. Even though I hung out with a popular crowd in highschool, I have seen the "so called" cool kids that are now complete losers, on drugs, or in jail, broke and still living in their parents house. And I have seen the geeky kids score big high paying jobs, and are now driving BMW's and Hummers, married and now planning to have a family of their own. No joke. Highschool glory does not last forever. So make some REAL life long goals.

    Ha, you were cool with all the rest -- no education, drinking, smoking, & unprotected vampire sex -- but you weren't cool with the puppy murdering?! Go figure. No, true story: When Kristen Stewart was 12 years old she was picked up by the LAPD for animal cruelty after setting fire to a neighbor's puppy. She spent 2 weeks in Juvenile Detention (where she obviously picked up her nasty smoking habit) and was ordered to see a child therapist to treat her puppy-hating disorder until she was 18 years old. ok,you're onto something here,but that last comment,about the puppies doesn't make any sense...She has 3 dogs,for Chrs sakes... I hink you've just been misinformed..

    tone it down, celebuzz. you obviously haven't dealt once in your lives with the trials of high school. i feel nothing but scorn for you for being completely judgmental and unable to empathize. just because you coasted through doesn't mean everyone else had the same easy ride. i sympathize with kristen completely. kids are cruel, quick to assume, and they spread rumors like fleas just to ruin others' reputations. it's called relational aggression and high school kids are the perfect perpetrators of this sort of ostracization; it's usually borne of jealousy and i can see how those other girls at her school would be jealous. stewart is beautiful and she just so happened to stumble upon fame; the girls at her school are obviously jealous, and i am relieved that she removed herself from such a disgusting environment. she's mature beyond her years and she is highly insightful; she's far too good to deal with those high school vermin.

Leave her alone she is real... Haters get lost !!

    what's with the attitude, Celebutt? She's not blunt, she's just being honest! And she's not the only one who's had problems with kids in school-remember Christina Aguilera? She went home to go to the prom and the girls essentially spat in her face? Let's face-if you're the slightest bit different high school is torture. I hope she's laughing all the way to the bank now and the girls who make her life miserable are eating crow. Kristen is an amazing person and I wish her nothing but the best (Rob exhibit A!).

    I think everybody needs to give the lady a break! She's right - High School is probably the most difficult thing anyone has to go through at that age - it's so cliquey and political. She made the choice that was right for her, and now everybody is jealous. She should probably cool it with the pot, though - Not only is it bad for her - it's also a bad example to set now that she's a teen role model. You're MAGNIFICENT Kristen - Keep up the good work and pull it together, Lady!
