Refusing to see what the internet has to say about them, these 5 stars try to steer clear of googling their own names. Some have done it in the past and realized that they’re better off not knowing what people think about them, while others have realized that they won’t be happy with how people talk about their personal lives or work and avoid googling themselves because they know they will feel a lot better just ignoring their own google results.
Commenting on her ‘IT’ girl tag, Chloe says it probably pops up when you google her but she tries to avoid doing that: ”It must come up when you Google me or something. I’d rather cut off my pinkie than Google myself!”
Mila hates that everyone has different opinions about her acting skills: ”The fact that there is no right or wrong is what I think is maddening. I can think you’re a phenomenal actor, but the guy next door can think you’re a horrible actor, and neither of us is wrong and neither of us is right. It’s just a matter of opinion. And when your only source of happiness comes from that opinion, you go mad. So I think that you have to restrain yourself from googling your name and have other hobbies and desires and wants.”
Sandra once read about herself online: ”I Googled myself and read the comments section, thinking I could get some tidbits of what people really think of me. No human being should ever read the comments sections or ever Google one’s self at any time.”
Sophie believes she is better off not knowing what people are saying: “As for forums and people dissecting stuff, I don’t know. Those things can be kind of… It’s not intended for me to view. So I think it would be unwise of me to look. People might be really positive but all you can remember is all the negative stuff. I try and steer clear on the whole. You know what it’s like? You know when you’re at school and you leave the room and you get the idea people are talking about you and you kind of want to know what they’re saying. But it’s best you don’t. “
Susan says she doesn’t even know how to google herself: ”I wouldn’t even know how to Google myself. I don’t know how to touch a computer.” She adds that reading reviews of her work doesn’t help either: “I don’t want to know. Even stuff that’s really good shouldn’t get stuck in your head, because it’s not real.”
