Social networking websites are one of the best ways to build your network and get to know what is happening around the world. It is more of today’s newspaper. Right from debuting a music album to dropping some fresh clothing brands, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram is the ideal choice for celebrities.
However, let’s not forget that with great powers come even great responsibility. Once a star enters the social media world and turns internet-famous, fans start expecting them to be like open books and avid posters. While the Kardashians might love sharing their each move, not all celebrities are the same. Some stars keep their lives private and prefer staying away from social media. Let’s check who they are.
10. Brad Pitt
Brad Pitt openly admits that besides being a Hollywood superstar, he lags behind when it comes to technology. He says that rather than spending hours and hours on social media, he would prefer do some physical activities and keep him fit. Indeed, a healthy choice Brad.
9. Angelina ingJolie
Like her hubby, even Angelina prefers to keep herself away from social media. She admits that she is not a tech savvy. In fact, she has never bothered to sign up a Facebook or Twitter account. She says it is beyond her understanding. Jolie loves to spend her precious time with her kids, as a film star, and as an activist. She has no time for social platforms. According to people magazine, both Brad and Jolie monitor their kids’ activities on the internet to make sure their cyber security.
8. Sandra Bullock
Sandra is one of the most versatile actors we have in the Hollywood industry. She has always been admired to act in movies that mostly out-perform the expectations. However, when we talk about social media, she is always out. She says that it is her personal life, and she likes to keep it private. The Oscar-winning actress doesn’t like to be bombarded with too many people and paparazzi. In fact, she even hates taking selfies.
7. Daniel Radcliffe
The Harry Potter star refuses to be on Twitter and Facebook. He doesn’t like to keep every moment of his life updated to public. He chooses to keep his life private, and that’s why he stays away from social media.
6. Jennifer Lawrence
One of the most buzzed Hollywood stars, Jennifer Lawrence, doesn’t have an Instagram or Twitter account yet. Though this might disappoint all her fans around the world, the reasons are good behind. Remember the time when her phone was hacked? All her private pictures were shared around the web. That was the extreme privacy violation a Hollywood star would have ever experienced.
Since the digital world has scorned her so much that it is natural for her to be away from all this social stuff. She told BBC Radio, ‘I will never get Twitter. I am not that good on the phone or technology. I cannot keep up with emails. So, the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me. If you ever see a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says it’s me, it most certainly is not.’
5. George Clooney
It looks like George doesn’t really want to say something wrong on social media after he is drunk. Perhaps, that is why he is keeping off from such public platforms. Well, one cannot blame him because none is aware of what he or she is talking after a few shots.
During a talk with Variety, George said, ‘God forbid, you take a sleeping pill and wake up, and the sentences don’t even make sense. What a horrible idea… I could easily say something stupid, and I also don’t think you need to be that available.’
4. Kristen Stewart
Kristen feels that Twitter actually hates her. In fact, she has ragged about Twitter in many of her interviews. She says that each time she goes out and when someone spots her, it is spread to the entire Twitter world, which then ends up with paparazzi chasing after her.
During a conversation with Flaunt, Kristen said, ‘Twitter f***s me over every day of my life. Because people go, “I’m sitting next to Kristen Stewart right now” and then the media show up. I get so mad. It is as if you are trampling on someone’s life without any regard. And it’s rampant. Everyone can do it now. Buy a camera and you are paparazzi; get a Twitter account and you are an informant. It is so annoying.’
3. Tina Fey
According to Tina Fey, Twitter is one of the boring places to be at. In fact, she thinks that social media is where bored people try to express themselves and that too in worst ways. Reading everyone’s problems and tweeting unwanted about stars, being hateful is totally uncalled. That is why she keeps herself isolated from social media.
2. Keira Knightley
Back in the year 2009, the Pirates of Caribbean star, Keira stated that she hated the internet. She even finds it extremely dehumanizing to constantly check social sites and mails. Since then to even today, it seems that her views on the internet haven’t changed. However, she created a twitter account but was only active for 12 hours and after that, she deactivated it. Keira described social media as another world of wannabe-cool-people who do not have much better to do.
It has been years since the popular TV series Friends ended but Jennifer is still one of the world’s most admired women. However, when it comes to socializing herself on Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram, consider her out. She is neither crazy about taking selfies. She says that she doesn’t understand the digital world. She feels that there is already a lot out there. Then, why add more to it? During an interview with mirror, she stated that “They exploit us enough in those rags that I’d rather do great work and focus on work and let that be my contribution, rather than me personally going ‘hey, I just had a taco or whatever’.”
