Kristen Stewart is not necessarily beloved among the masses, having allegedly had a fling with her married director and constantly pouting her way through interviews.

But now, Stewart is bringing her unique brand of curiosity and intelligence to one of L.A.'s finest institutions: She's enrolling as an English lit major at UCLA.

According to Britain's Daily Mirror, Stewart is considering what she might do with herself once this acting thing has run its course. She has apparently "always loved" English lit, reports the gossip site, and so she feels it makes sense to pursue it.

"She is a voracious reader and cannot wait to get going on her correspondence course," a source told the Mirror.

UCLA's Department of English is located on the main Westwood campus, and also offers majors in fields like creative writing.

Stewart is currently filming Camp X-Ray, a movie about Guantanamo Bay.
