Stewart: 'I was happy to leave school'

Kristen Stewart has insisted that she has not missed out on social interaction by leaving school at an early age.

The 19-year-old Twilight star has appeared in a number of movies since her debut at Jodie Foster's daughter in 2002's Panic Room, including Speak, Into The Wild and Zathura.

Stewart told The Times: "I'm glad I could do those films, and I was glad to leave school. I couldn't relate to kids my own age. They are mean and don't give you any 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 realise it is just a smaller version of life."

She added: "When I was there, I was never the type of girl to be walking around talking about acting, so I didn't get a whole lot of hassle for that, until someone found out, until someone saw some old movie and realised.

"I was trying to play it down, but I definitely got, 'Oh, she's such a bitch'. They'd never spoken to me, but instantly they were, like, 'You are so rude'. I am not rude."
