There are definitely perks and risks associated with using social media. People are able to get news quickly through it, and they can also get a look inside their favorite celebrities’ lives. In addition, some celebrities are able to cash in big on social media by promoting products to their followers. Some actors have even said that the number of followers they have on social media came into consideration when trying to land roles.
But there are also downsides for celebrities who use social media. They already get followed in person by paparazzi and are asked questions about their personal lives from fans and reporters all the time. So why would they open themselves up even more to the public? Well, here are 25 celebrities who decided to opt out of social media completely, and why!
1. Jennifer Lawrence
The actress is the biggest star in Hollywood at the moment, but you can’t follow her on social media in order to follow her every move. “So the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me,” she said according to The Bert Show. “I’ll never get Twitter. If you ever see a Facebook or Instagram or Twitter that says it’s me, it’s not me.” She continued, “It’s because the internet has scorned me so much that I feel like it’s that girl in high school that I’m like, ‘Oh, you want to talk about her? Yeah I’ll do that!’ Take my hoops off, I’m ready to go.”
The actress does have an official Facebook page, but it’s mainly used for promotion and giving out public statements.
