What is it about social media that attracts celebrities towards it? Is it the interactions with fans? Is it branding opportunities? Or is plain and simple FOMO? Well, whatever it is, we know a few bigwigs who are ready to forgo all of this even in today’s world. We’re talking of course about Hollywood celebrities who have abstained from using Twitter, Instagram, Facebook or other platforms till now. Let us go through the list so you know exactly which celebrity to not search for on any of the aforementioned platforms.
The Hunger Games star doesn’t have a presence on Instagram or Twitter but has indeed admitted to going on these platforms as a “voyeur” at times. She has claimed to use them only when absolutely necessary. This means she might only be using them for personal conversations, so there’s no use searching for her profile.
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen
The Olsen twins are nowhere to be found on social media. They have refrained from making their profiles on popular services until now. However, they did post a widely shared selfie on Sephora’s Instagram account, which was their first publicly shared selfie ever. The two had taken over the account for a limited time when they had shared the image.
Kristen Stewart has always been sort of reticent, but she has her own reasons for staying off social media. She argues that the time spent on these platforms could rather be used to do something more productive. Well, no one could argue with that, but the fact remains that her fans would very much be thrilled to see her popping up on Instagram someday.
In classic British style, Benedict Cumberbatch decided to mock himself when asked why he isn’t on social media. The Sherlock star asserted that he’d be a “disaster” on these platforms, as he wouldn’t know what to post and what not to post. Referring to Twitter, he also said that he’d go over his character limit and not make any sense of what he typed.
One of this generation’s biggest stars, Brad Pitt too has managed to stay off social media for a long time. He has been heard saying that he doesn’t see the point of such platforms. With words so harsh, we don’t see any hopes of Brad Pitt joining social media during his lifetime.
ScarJo has mentioned that social media can be an amazing tool for sharing information and raising awareness. However, the idea of sharing everything you do with everyone is something that the Jojo Rabbit actor doesn’t get. It’s safe to say that we won’t be getting to see her on Instagram in the recent future.
Daniel Radcliffe’s reason for not being on social networking platforms is pretty similar to Benedict Cumberbatch’s. He has been quoted saying that he doesn’t hate these sites, but believes that he’d be terrible on them. The Harry Potter star sure does deserve to cash in on the fandom he commands, but that’s perhaps not meant to be.
