Even with the plethora of celebrities (including the ones that have said "it's complicated") sharing their personal lives on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter you'd be surprised at how many other stars are foregoing social media completely, either due to confusion, lack of interest, or just plain fear. Just this week, a trio of A-listers — George Clooney, Julia Roberts, and Kate Hudson — all spoke out against social networking. George communicated the dangers of drunk-tweeting while Julia likened to it a sugar high, and Kate admitted to being "scared" of the whole concept. Read on to see 10 stars that are so not about social media.
In a recent sit-down with Esquire, George Clooney spilled all of his feelings about social media, primarily Twitter. The actor said, "Why on God's green earth would you be on Twitter? Because first of all, the worst thing you can do is make yourself more available, right? Because you're going to be available to everybody. But also Twitter." He also mused on the dangers of drunk-tweeting: "So one drunken night, you come home, and you've had two too many drinks, and you're watching TV, and somebody pisses you off, and you go 'Ehhhhh' and fight back. And you go to sleep, and you wake up in the morning, and your career is over. Or you're an asshole. Or all the things you might think in the quiet of your drunken evening are suddenly blasted around the entire world before you wake up."
Even if George Clooney was to get a Twitter account, one person he won't be sharing 140 characters with is Julia Roberts. His Ocean's Eleven costar recently opened up about her aversion to social media to Marie Claire, saying, "It's kind of like cotton candy: It looks so appealing, and you just can't resist getting in there, and then you just end up with sticky fingers, and it lasted an instant."
On the subject of getting in on the social media craze, Kate Hudson told Harper's Bazaar: "I'm scared!"
Kristen Stewart had harsh words for Twitter and its users in a 2010 interview with Flaunt magazine. The Twilight star said, "Twitter f**ks me over every day of my life. Because people go, ‘I’m sitting next to Kristen Stewart right now,’ and then [the paparazzi] show up." She went on: "I see people on their phones, and I just want to take these cookies and throw them. It’s like ‘Get off your f**king phone, and get a life!’ I get so mad. It’s like you’re trampling on someone’s life without any regard. And it’s rampant. 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."
