Kristen Stewart: ‘My Teachers Failed Me. Not One, But All of Them.’

A lot of people think celebrities are self-entitled brats who have no concept of the real world anymore because they’re surrounded by sycophants. Luckily Kristen Stewart is here to dispel that myth.

In Britain’s GQ magazine, Kristen says her former teachers “failed” to support her while she was out acting and refused to help her catch up on school work while she was shooting on location. She explains that they pretty much forced her into home schooling.

“School became genuinely uncomfortable,” she says.

“I was feeling a little self-conscious about the acting thing with my peers, but also my teachers became a problem. They didn’t want to do the extra work or put packages together so I could keep up while away.

“They failed me. 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 go to school. But then this happened.” The Age

Yea, f**k those teachers for not giving actresses special treatment. You’re telling me these teachers could manage a classroom full of kids for 8 hours at a time but couldn’t take three hours out of their day to create a package tailored to one of their students who’s never in class because they’re traveling around the world shooting movies? This is what’s wrong with the American education system these days. Not enough preferential treatment.

THEY failed her? She is so far removed from reality it’s astonishing. Guess she never heard of personal responsibility. Bet she thinks that’s what assistants are for.

1. Kristen Stewart worked mostly in indies so she wasn’t traveling all over the world. But that’s neither here nor there. 2. I wasn’t an actor and I had teachers who prepared my work ahead of time so I could go on vacation with my parents or when I knew I was going to be out of school. Lets not pretend teachers don’t do things like that.  3. Most children actors end up being home schooled, my guess is for similar reasons. But it’s easier to be an asshole and pick on a 21yr old kid who dared to be… Read more »

It isn’t a teachers job to accomodate your vacation or lame acting schedule. If you want to be successful in school…atend it.
