Jennifer Lawrence Talks about leaving school at 14: “I needed to forge my very own path”

JENNIFER Lawrence has made the surprising revelation that she left high school at the age of just 14, saying she “never felt smart”.

JENNIFER Lawrence could be a lot of things — an Oscar winner, a bona fide movie star, an outspoken advocate for women — however she isn’t a high school graduate.

“I dropped out of secondary school,” the Red Sparrow star, 27, revealed to 60 minutes in a phase airing Sunday. “I don’t technically have a GED (equivalent to an HSC) or a diploma. I’m self-educated.”

She explained, “I struggled through college. I ne’er felt terribly smart. And when I’m reading the script and that i desire i do know precisely what it might seem like if someone felt that way, that was a whole a part of my brain that I didn’t even understand existed, one thing I can be assured in, and that i didn’t need to let it go.”

Lawrence firmly denied having any regret for dropping out of middle school as a result of it, sealed the way for her mega-stardom today.

“I wished to forge my very own path,” she said. “I found what I needed to try and do and i didn’t want something getting in the way of it. Even friends, for several years, weren’t as necessary to me as my career.”

Lawrence antecedently spoke of her lack of education in a 2013 Vanity Fair profile, however called herself “vastly uneducated” at the time instead of “self-educated.”
