She may be one of the most stylish young actresses in Hollywood but Twilight star Kristen Stewart says she was bullied for being a tomboy.
The 22-year-old actress, who always dreamt of becoming a writer or director, says she never considered being an actor because she refused to succumb to peer pressure, reported Showbiz spy.
"Look at a picture of me before I was 15. I am a boy. I wore my brother's clothes, dude! Not like I cared that much, but I remember being made fun of because I wasn't wearing Juicy jeans. I didn't even think about it.
"But it's not like I didn't care that they made fun of me. It really bothered me. I remember this girl in sixth grade looked at me in gym and was like, 'Oh my God! That's disgusting — you don't shave your legs!," she said.
Stewart says that she has been criticized a lot for not looking perfect in every photograph.
"I'm not embarrassed about it. I'm proud of it. If I took perfect pictures all the time, the people standing in the room with me, or on the carpet, would think, 'What an actress! What a faker!'."
