The actor, famous for his roles in Star Trek: The Next Generation and the X-Men movies, told students he would go to the cinema as a teenager to get away from his difficult home life.

Stewart, 69, who grew up with an abusive father in West Yorkshire, was speaking to a group of sixth formers as he launched National Schools Film Week at London's Empire cinema.

The former Royal Shakespeare Company actor said: "My home life wasn't very pleasant, and not fun, so getting out, not being at home, especially to have the opportunity to escape into a fantasy world was bliss."

He added: "I hated it when the movie or the Saturday morning ended, and I had to go back to real life. So, in a sense I was being set up for being an actor, for entering this world of make-believe."
