Daisy Jones And The Six star Camila Morrone has revealed she was pulled out of high school in favor of homeschooling as a teen so she could pursue her career as a model – admitting that the experience left her feeling ‘very excluded’.
As a child of divorce, the 25-year-old actress and model, who is the ex-girlfriend of Leonardo DiCaprio, moved between her parents’ homes and even ended up attending Beverly Hills High School briefly.
She then enrolled in a homeschooling program which gave her the flexibility to travel while working, InStyle Australia reported.
Giving more insight into her life as a young woman, Camila revealed she ‘felt very excluded.’

‘Just now, in my middle twenties I’ve finally got a narrowed group of people who I really love and trust,’ she said.
And that appears to include a batch of famous friends like Kendall Jenner, Kaia Gerber and Hailey Bieber, just to name a few.
In the interview, Camila, who is the daughter Argentine actors Maximo Morrone and Lucila Solá, describes herself as a ‘girls’ girl.’
‘I have a lot of girlfriends. I think that this industry is so complicated and so hard and so competitive that we might as well look out for each other and support and uplift each other,’ she said.
‘I’m more excited than my friends are for themselves, and I don’t want any friends in my life who don’t have that same kind of energy towards me.’
Previously she told Vulture that going to Beverly Hills High School was nothing like the TV show, Beverly Hills 90210, adding: ‘You don’t have to be a rich kid to go there. It was weird — my parents didn’t raise me like that.
‘Even if they had the money — which they didn’t — I wasn’t getting a $100,000 car for my birthday.
‘So to grow up around kids like that is very disorienting. It’s confusing, and eye-opening for how the world works, to see that kind of money and privilege at 15, 16. But I had to work for my first car.’

And work she did, as a model, and it took her two years to save up, and she rented a car ‘the day [she] turned 16.’
Her mother also dated Al Pacino for four years and she referred to him as her stepdad
Camila’s mother Lucila was in a relationship with Leo’s longtime friend, Al Pacino, for years and she previously referred to him as her ‘stepdad’ during an appearance on The Late, Late Show With James Corden in 2018.
In 2013 when she got her first movie role in the biopic Bukowski about the famous writer, she went to Al for advice.
She rang him saying: ‘Al I don’t know what to do,’ and she said he was more than happy to help and invited her to his place to read the script.
Two hours later after they finished the script she asked: ‘So what do I do? What is acting? How do I do it? I don’t know how to cry.’
And proving what a fine actress she is, Camila did a great take off of her stepdad when she revealed he said: ‘Just be yourself, if you don’t cry that’s fine, just react to the act, and you’ll be fine… you’re 19, no one cares.’
