5 Stars Who Think Social Media Impacts Their Privacy

Believing that having social media accounts such as Facebook or Twitter can negatively impact their privacy, these 5 celebrities have commented on staying away from the spotlight by avoiding internet interactions. Some say that they simply don’t want fans to know what they’re doing at any given moment, while others believe it makes them less believable on screen or think it’s bad that people can tell where they are.


Daniel Radcliffe


Daniel says not being on social media makes things less complicated: “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.”

Kristen Stewart

Kristen is afraid of how much people can know because of social media: “Like I’m going to die because somebody is going to say where I am and somebody is going to kill me. Someone’s going to Twitter my location and then it’s going to be like, boom.”

Lily Collins

Lily thinks having social accounts distracts an audience: “I think there is something great about seeing someone as a character because you don’t know them that well as themselves. I like to be able to watch movies and not know too much about someone personally. I don’t want to be tainted by thinking, ‘Oh my god, they had the best pasta last week.'”

Mila Kunis

Mila thinks people don’t need to know about her private life: “I just don’t think people need to know when I’m going to the restroom.”

Scarlett Johansson

Scarlett doesn’t like the idea of everyone knowing what she’s doing: “I don’t know how I feel about this idea of, ‘Now, I’m eating dinner, and I want everyone to know that I’m having dinner at this time,’ or, ‘I just mailed a letter and dropped off my kids.’”
