Kristen Wiig is sorry for being a rebellious teenager.

The actress was an out of control teenager who would play truant from school.

Although she might have got into trouble as a youngster, her hell raising days are now behind her.

"I went through my rebellious stage in my teens. There was a period when I got into trouble but nothing major. We all have those periods - you do stupid things when you're young, like sneaking out of the house or making prank phone calls," she explained to UK magazine Look. "I'm not going to talk about the things that I did, because I'm not that person anymore, and... I apologise to anyone from that period of time who I might have upset."

Kristen was not a natural performer as a child. The Bridesmaids star finds it strange that people thought she was humorous at school as she was never a big joker growing up.

"I've never thought of myself as a funny person. People expect me to talk in voices and be hilarious... people are generally disappointed in me," she joked. "[As a youngster] I wasn't into acting at all. I was too nervous and shy. I went through my yearbook recently and I was very surprised that people had written about me being funny, but I was never the class clown. I think people who knew me well thought I was funny - silly is probably a better word."

Your employer will entrust you with some important tasks. Don't let them down. By doing a good job, you'll pave the way for a pay increase. You can put the extra money towards a home or car. Having financial security will allow you to develop your creative talents. It's important for you to exercise your imagination at every opportunity. Letting it lay dormant is like refusing to harvest a thriving crop. Stop wasting the valuable gifts you've been given.More
