Studies are an important part of life and actress, Kristen Stewart, proved it right after she graduated from high school, passing her last exams on the set of her third film in the ‘Twilight’ series.

The 19-year-old actress qualified between scenes of ’Eclipse’ at exactly the same time as her character Bella, so the fictional graduation ceremony she shot for the film doubled up as her real one, Daily Star reported.

“I know it’s a little late, and I’m a little old, but I just finished high school, with honours,” she said.

Stewart had earlier had quit schooling to pursue her Hollywood dream, but continued taking classes with tutors on movie sets.

“The other day I was doing a graduation scene on Eclipse and I had just finished high school myself the week before, so I told the crew, ‘Hey, just so you know, I’m actually graduating right now, and I’m not going to have another ceremony’,” she said.

“So I took a mock picture with an extra. I literally asked the actor to come back and shake my hand and hand me the diploma while I was dressed in a cap and gown,” Stewart added.
