In a new interview, K-Stew says that she was targeted as an ice queen growing up and was bullied by other kids so much that she couldn’t wait to leave school!

Kristen Stewart is a perfect example of the expression, ‘you can’t always judge a book by its cover.’ Although the actress comes off as tough and aloof in interviews, she’s really just painfully shy – and she’s paid the price for that misunderstanding.

“I couldn’t relate to kids my own age [ in school],” the 20-year-old Twilight Saga starlet told the Daily Telegraph. “They are mean and don’t give you a chance. Once you have [finished] with school, you realize it’s just a smaller version of life, and really I have felt that I should have been an adult since I was aged about five.”

She added, “I didn’t walk around doing movies, but then someone saw an old movie I was in, The Safety of Objects, and realized that the little boy in it [she played a tomboy] had grown up into this girl — me. And then I got a lot of, ‘She’s such a bitch!’ And yet, most of these kids had never even spoken to me.”

In fact, Kristen was so oppressed by her classmates that she left school for good at the age of 13! “I was glad to leave school,” she admitted. Can’t say we blame her!

We genuinely feel bad for K-Stew – it sucks to be so misunderstood. At least now she has boyfriend Robert Pattinson to beat up any haters!
