KRISTEN STEWART is heading back to school, if reports this morning are to be believed. The actress is said to have enrolled at the University of California (UCLA) and signed up to complete a course in English literature.
Nothing has yet been confirmed, by either the school or Stewart’s representatives, but it’s believed that she will take a distance-learning course – meaning that she can complete it remotely so as not to disrupt her filming schedule.
“She is already considering a life after film. She never got to complete college and she wants to get a proper education,” said a source, according to tabloid reports. “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.”
If confirmed, it would mean that the 23-year-old follows the likes of Emma Watson, Lily Cole and Tyra Banks in returning to higher education after already having successful careers. Stewart started acting at the age of eight and landed her first major film role, opposite Jodie Foster in Panic Room, aged 11. She began filming the role of Bella Swan in the Twilight franchise in 2008, shortly before her 18th birthday.
