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.

"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!'."
