22 Celebrities Who Don't Use Social Media

Social media is the 21st century’s newspaper. From dropping new clothing lines to debuting a music video, Instagram, Twitter, and Snapchat are often celebrities’ medium of choice to unveil the latest news to their eager followings.

But with great power comes great responsibility: By becoming a social media star, fans expect you to be an avid poster, a role model, and an open book. While the Kardashians may enjoy sharing their every move, not every celebrity is so inclined.

“I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life,” Scarlett Johansson famously told Interview back in 2011. Here are her fellow naysayers, who all prefer to keep things close to the chest and away from the internet.

Keira Knightley

“I did actually join Twitter for about 12 hours because I tried to be down with the kids and it just creeped me out,” she said on The Jonathan Ross Show. “I didn’t post anything and I was under a false name and I think because Chloë [Grace Moretz] followed me, suddenly all these people started following me and posting, ‘I’m having a cup of tea now,’ and I just got completely freaked out….”

Rachel McAdams

“I listen to the news on the radio. I don’t have a television and I am really bad at e-mail,” McAdams told People back in 2009. “I’m really ignorant.”

Sandra Bullock

“We’re not representing our lives truthfully,” Bullock told U.K.’s The Times. “I will not take a selfie that I can’t erase. I don’t post or do any of that stuff.”

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen

While the twins have abstained from creating social media accounts of their own, citing their desire for privacy, they did post their first-ever public selfie in an Instagram takeover for Sephora in April 2016.

Jennifer Lawrence

“I will never get Twitter. I’m not very good on [a] phone or technology,” the actress told BBC Radio 1. “I cannot really keep up with emails, so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me.”

Scarlett Johansson

“I don’t have a Facebook or a Twitter account,” Johansson told Interview. “I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life.”

Emily Blunt

“I’m like a dinosaur with that stuff, No. 1. But it’s also not really an organic sort of fit for me,” Blunt told Vulture. “I can barely remember to text people back!”

Jennifer Garner

“I don’t want any more guilt coming from my phone or computer,” Garner told People. “There is nothing I would put out that people would want to see. It’s probably best to stay away. They don’t want to see me and my mom friends after kindergarten drop-off.”

Emma Stone

“It seems like everyone’s cultivating their lives on Instagram or on different forms of social media, and what pictures look best of their day,” Stone told EPIX.com.

Kristen Stewart

“It’s like you’re trampling on someone’s life without any regard,” Stewart told Flaunt. “Everyone can do it now. Buy a camera and you’re paparazzi; get a Twitter account and you’re an informant. It’s so annoying.”

Kate Winslet

“It has a huge impact on young women’s self-esteem, because all they ever do is design themselves for people to like them,” Winslet told The Sunday Times. “And what comes along with that? Eating disorders. And that makes my blood boil. And is the reason we don’t have any social media in our house.”

Julia Roberts

“Listen, I don’t have my head in the sand. I’m aware of the different outlets, however you label them. It’s like people talking about a TV show: I can be perfectly aware of the TV show and the story, but it doesn’t mean I watch it. I have other friends who watch it, and they tell me about it,” she said in InStyle‘s June 2016 issue. “I mean, we were talking about Instagram. Everyone has Instagram on their phone. And I just, yeah, [if I had it] I would be looking at it all the time.”

George and Amal Clooney

“I could easily say something stupid, and I also don’t think you need to be that available,” Clooney told Variety.

Mila Kunis

“I just don’t think people need to know when I’m going to the restroom,” she said on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. “What am I gonna tweet? Like, ‘Hey now I’m moving from room to room.’ I don’t really know what I would tweet.”

Daniel Radcliffe

“I don’t have Twitter and I don’t have Facebook, and I think that makes things a lot easier because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you’re doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously,” Radcliffe told Sky News.

Tina Fey

It’s surprising that Tina Fey wouldn’t embrace social media, but when she explained why, you can’t help but agree. In an interview with Time, she said that it’s all about getting what she deserves: “Why would I give my jokes away for free?”

Cate Blanchett

Cate Blanchett called social media platforms a breeding ground for comparison and narcissism, so she prefers to stay out of it all.

In an interview with Yahoo Beauty, she said, “There’s a subversive quality to the Internet, and I do think there’s a genuine ability to connect. But the downside with social media is it divides people really quickly and sets up rivalry and jealousy and a sense of the life over there is better than the life over here.”

Kate Moss

While she does have an account for her modeling agency, runway veteran Kate Moss doesn’t have any personal accounts.

She told The Sydney Morning Herald, “The whole modelling scene is completely different to when I first started out. Everything now is so instant with digital photography and there’s no mystique. I don’t have any personal accounts on social media, I’m just not into posting about personal stuff online.”

Chris Pine

Back in 2017, Chris Pine said that he embraced flip-phone life and tried to streamline how he approached the digital world. While there’s probably been an update in his phone choice, he still doesn’t have any social media accounts.

“I’ll tell you what, here we go,” Pine said. “I recently got a record player and a flip phone. I kind of like the simplifying down. I just like the simple, I just like the non-complicated. I don’t want to be connected so much.”

Saoirse Ronan

Though Saoirse Ronan did have a Twitter account back in the ’00s, she’s decided to drop it, telling The Wrap that she’s not that into pumping herself up, saying, “self-promotion has always always made me feel really uncomfortable.”

She added that social media is “too much work for me and too stressful. I’ve developed a kind of distant relationship with my phone and technology over the past couple of years.”

Phoebe Waller-Bridge

In 2019, Phoebe Waller-Bridge said that she would felt some pressure to be “on” all the time if she had social media accounts, saying “I would feel pressure to be funny all the time.” She went on to say that she wouldn’t be able to handle negative comments, either.

Alicia Vikander

It only took a month for Alicia Vikander to realize that social media wasn’t for her. In an interview with Harper’s Bazaar, she said it was enough time for her to decide to purge her accounts and give it up.

“I realized early on that social media was not good for me; I personally didn’t find the joy in it,” she said.
