Actress Evan Rachel Wood used the torment she suffered at the hands of childhood bullies as inspiration for her latest film role. The star dropped out of school at 11 and was home-schooled after finding life at high school unbearable. Wood uses the painful memories to play a bitchy school girl in her latest movie Pretty Persuasion. The 18-year-old says, "I had to take various acting classes and there was a girl who was pretending to be my best friend but there she was, stabbing me in the back whenever she could."
