Proud to take a different road, says Rebecca

Actress Rebecca Hall says she dropped out of Cambridge University because she wanted to take charge of her life and gain some pride for taking a different road.

The Iron Man 3 star was studying English literature at the university in Britain, but she left the course before the final year, because she felt she had achieved all she hoped to.

‘I had reached a fork in the road where I thought everything I had wanted to do at university had been done - make great friends and do a lot of theatre and work out what kind of grown-up I wanted to be, and I’d got to that point,’
quoted Hall as saying.

‘Basically I thought, if I can make a choice like this which bucks the trend, and is different and now, I know that I’ll be able to do it for the rest of my life. I’ll feel proud of myself taking a different road,’ said Hall. It was a risk for the 30-year-old, but she is glad she took as it gave her a sense of purpose, making her feel bold for taking the chance.
