Poor Kristen Stewart’s hairy legs got her picked on, but don’t worry – Robert Pattinson probably doesn’t have to worry about his girlfriend’s prickly pins now since she was only in sixth grade when she got bullied for not shaving them.
It’s pretty sad that girls these days are expected to start shaving their legs so young, and it’s not surprising that K-Stew refused to conform by rocking hairy legs – this is the girl who wears Converse sneakers on the red carpet, after all. She’s also not afraid to be
According to Take 40, Kristen Stewart told Vanity Fair this about how she got bullied as a young girl:
“I remember being made fun of, because I wasn’t wearing (designer) Juicy (Couture) jeans. I didn’t even think about it. I wore my gym clothes. 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 also revealed that she used to love wearing her brother’s clothes.
So K-Stew seems like a great inspiration for all the social outcasts out there at first – she appears to be proof that kids who get made fun of can go on to be great successes in life. However, she kind of had a little help since her father is a TV producer and her mother is a script supervisor – she was basically born into the biz.
But it is still refreshing to see someone born into money refusing to turn into another Kim Kardashian. And since Kristen’s street style is a little grungier, it’s like the Snow White and the Huntsman star has a Cinderella moment every time she gets all gussied up for the red carpet.
Hopefully some young girls out there will still read Kristen Stewart’s comments about what she was like when she was younger and realize that they also don’t have to spend all their time shopping for clothes and going through grueling beauty routines. And now that K-Stew has found her perfect low-key match in Robert Pattinson, hopefully he’s okay with her taking a break from shaving her legs every now and then.
