Abigail Breslin has confessed she doesn't like school, especially algebra.

But the 14-year-old Little Miss Sunshine star, who voices mouse Priscilla in new animation Rango, revealed her parents make sure she does her homework when she's busy working on films.

Abigail, who stars alongside Johnny Depp in the film, said: "I'm home schooled so I do school online and send it in to my teachers - I'm not a huge school fan... I'm doing algebra right now - I don't like it."

She added: "Then when I'm on set I have a tutor for three hours a day and I just - my parents make sure I get all my school done, unfortunately!"

Abigail, who was the fourth youngest person to be nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for her role in Little Miss Sunshine in 2006 when she was just ten, admitted there were stresses that come with growing up in the spotlight.

She said: "There a definitely pressures and it goes along with the job, with press and everything.

"But there are a lot more important things going on in the world than movies. There are diseases, there are people starving, there are huge things going on. So you kind of just have to keep in perspective - and then there's a movie."

:: Rango is released in cinemas on Friday March 4.
