London: 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!`."
