In the interview, the daughter of actor Will Knightley and playwright Sharman Macdonald declared: "I kept my head down in school. I was very quiet. I had a few friends but not many.
"I certainly wasn't one of the popular people. When I was very little kids called me stupid because I couldn't read.
"Yeah, the dyslexia didn't help. But it's amazing what a child calling you stupid would do to make you read pretty quickly. I wasn't happy in school, partly because I wanted to do something else.
"I was just absolutely not happy being there. I was lucky enough to have an escape route and this is it. Many kids aren't and many are very unhappy.
