London: "Twilight" star Taylor Lautner says his acting career made him a "bit of an outcast" when he was in school.

The 19-year-old actor admits he often missed classes and hang-outs which made his teenage years more challenging.

"I had a lot of fun in high school, but was I viewed as maybe a bit of an outcast? Sure," quoted Lautner as saying.

"I was busy and would sometimes have to leave school and shoot a movie and then come back, or I`d miss a week because I`d be doing a television show. That definitely made it more challenging," he added.
