James Bond “Spectre” star Lea Seydoux has revealed she did badly in exams at school and struggled her way through her education.
The 30-year-old Lea Seydoux said she always found her studies tough going and at one point her grades were so poor her teacher contacted her mother, philanthropist Valerie Schlumberger, to discuss her performance, reported Femalefirst.
“The school called my mother and were like, ‘Your daughter has a serious problem.’ (My score) was very low! Very.”
Explaining how her experience of education affected her, she added: “I did feel rejected, but I was already so excited about the world. I just wasn’t suited to school. I was already watching people. I realised that the world is hostile.
“Some people are not born strong and they invent themselves, and so they become strong individuals by their own will. I think I’m part of that. I made myself strong.”
