Kristen Stewart Might Be UCLA’s Newest Student
According to a tabloid report, Kristen Stewart has enrolled for an English Lit class at UCLA, thus joining the likes of Emma Watson, Natalie Portman and Jodie Foster by becoming both a movie star and a college student at the same time.
KStew won’t be schlepping to classes in person, though. Instead, she’ll supposedly take advantage of modern technology and do things online.
“She is already considering a life after film. She never got to complete college and she wants to get a proper education,” a source told the Sun (quotes via Vogue UK) about the 23-year-old actress, who began her career when she was 8 years old and found worldwide fame at 17 in the first ‘Twilight’ film.
“She is a voracious reader and cannot wait to get going on her correspondence course. It won’t be easy and it will mean putting in some fairly strenuous hours. But once she’s graduated, Kristen will be able to do almost anything she wants, in or out of Hollywood.”
No official confirmation of the story, but Stewart did share her views about higher education last year while at the Toronto International Film Festival promoting her movie ‘On the Road.’
“I was always good in school — like, kind of reluctantly… [and] I never, ever imagined that I wouldn’t go to college; I just got caught up in things,” she told the Hollywood Reporter, adding, “What I knew when I was younger was that I wanted to know that I was going to be really challenged, and I am. I didn’t want to step out of what was already really challenging me.”
