Having starred in films that demolish the box office again and again with another motion picture mega-hit in the works, plus a handsome boyfriend, Twilight actress Kristen Stewart appears to have it all.

It wasn't always that way, though.

Recently, The Age reported the Snow White and The Huntsman star lashed out at her former school teachers, saying that they "failed her."

Since Stewart began her acting career at an early age, she performed the delicate balancing act of managing school, auditions and cinematic roles. Finally, in the 7th grade, she buckled under what she described to British GQ, as "uncomfortable" pressure and started homeschooling.

"I was feeling a little self-conscious about the acting thing with my peers, but also my teachers became a problem," The New Zealand Herald quotes Stewart telling British GQ. "They didn't want to do the extra work or put packages together so I could keep up while away. My teachers failed me. not one, but all of them. I'm always slightly ashamed in a way about what I do. I'm slightly embarrassed as I had such serious ambitions when I was younger, I just never imagined that I would ever have a reason not to go to school. But then this happened."
