Kristen Stewart, the star of the incredibly popular Twilight films reveals in an interview with the Daily Telegraph website that she quit school at 13!
“I was glad to leave school. I was missing a lot of classes and they were failing me.”
“I couldn’t relate to kids my own age. They are mean and don’t give you any chance. Once you have done with school, you realise that it is just a smaller version of life, and really I have felt that I should have been an adult since I was aged about five.”
“I remember when I turned 18 everyone asked me if I felt more mature, but I felt the same as I always did. Juggling work and school, and helping my mother; I’ve always had a lot of responsibility.”
The actress was only 9 when she landed her first movie role, and told the website that she was often judged in school because of her big screen success, even though she wouldn’t talk about it to her classmates.
“I didn’t walk around talking about doing movies but then someone saw an old movie I was in, ‘The Safety of Objects’, and realised that the little boy in it had grown up into this girl’s. And then I got a lot of, ‘She’s such a b***h!”
Wow, I think it must be hard to be ‘that kid’ in school that all the other kids are jealous of, but 13 seems kinda young to me to quit school! Although I’m sure she was homeschooled, and it certainly hasn’t seemed to effect her success! I guess she definitely got the last laugh! Would you let your child quit school early if they were being judged, or would you make them stick it out?
