WASHINGTON: Oscar-winning star Jennifer Lawrence has opened up about dropping out of middle school to pursue her acting career.

In a sneak peek for her chat with Bill Whitaker, the 27-year-old admitted she left school at the age of 14.

“I dropped out of middle school. I don't technically have a GED or a diploma. I am self-educated,” she told the ‘60 Minutes’ host.

Lawrence explained, “I struggled through school. I never felt very smart. And when I’m reading the script and I feel like I know exactly what it would look like if somebody felt that way, that was a whole part of my brain that I didn’t even know existed, something I could be confident in, and I didn’t want to let it go.”

When asked if she regretted the decision, the ‘Red Sparrow’ star responded, “No. I really don't. I wanted to forge my own path. I found what I wanted to do, and I didn't want anything getting in the way of it. Even friends, for many years, were not as important to me as my career. I mean, from the age of 14.”
