Kristen Stewart Teased In School Due To Hairy Legs And Other Bullied Celebrities [PHOTOS]
Even in Hollywood, Stewart is known to be the boyish type when not playing her film roles. "I hated school so much," she said in an interview. And this is not because she was academically challenged but because she hates being bullied just for her tomboyish looks.
The 22-year-old said in Daily Star that she could not deny then that she felt bad about being bullied. She may have acted a bit indifferent as she wore gym clothes but deep inside then, Stewart said that the entire bullying events in her life bothered her a lot.
She even remembers one girl when she was in sixth grade who was so disgusted with her just because she did not shave her legs.
