15 Celebrities Who Are Not on Social Media and Why

Click to know *exactly* why these famous personalities chose to stay away from the limelight on popular digital platforms. 

While several Bollywood and Hollywood celebrities have chosen to avoid social media—mostly due to digital toxicity and negativity—we do hope they get on it sometime in the future.

Imran Khan

"When I’m walking down the streets of a city, I should be free to walk wherever I choose. Similarly, when I’m roaming around the internet, I should be able to go my own way. If I found a forum of like-minded people, people I want to talk to, I’ll open up. Elsewhere, I’d rather just watch from afar," said the 'Jaane Tu Ya Jaane Na' actor in an interview.

Ranbir Kapoor

"I am not on social media not just because it's not easy, but because I am already on a platform where I have to engage with the audience. Now, I can’t put myself on another platform where I won’t be interested. I feel I am a little shy. I don’t think I can use social media but I do enjoy watching it. So, that’s primarily the reason I am not on social media," revealed the actor during 'Jagga Jasoos' promotions. He added, "Trolls are the parcel that comes with social media and people should not take them seriously. One just needs to focus on their work and let their work speak for itself.”

Saif Ali Khan

Saif Ali Khan has revealed that he stalked a few celebrities on social media, but failed to find anything worthwhile or interesting on their profile. In the past, he has also opened up about how negativity is fostered on these digital platforms, which is why he chooses to stay away from them. He said, "a nicer way to think is, oh, I’m reading my book, I’ve got my kid, I’m happy with my life, and when I go out, I assume everything is lovely because I’m happy."

Rani Mukherjee

"I am not on social media, and because of this, I am happy in my space. Right now, if you look at my phone, I have no social media apps. There are only basic things like messages and phone calls. I am not even on WhatsApp... I like to be in this dinosaur age; it suits me better. I am one of those. It is very unfortunate but I just can’t be on social media. I would love to be on it but it’s not in me to be there," she said in an interview.

Sandra Bullock

"We're not representing our lives truthfully. I will not take a selfie that I can't erase. I don't post or do any of that stuff," she said in an interview with U.K's The Times. During a 2018 interview with InStyle, Sandra Bullock said, "I'm not ignorant of what's happening out there. I look over people's shoulders, going, 'What is that little vignette of a cat on a fan?' I'm just lazy. But I'm going to get on it and troll my friends. Once my kids are using it, I'll know how to navigate it. I don't want to be naive."

Scarlett Johansson

"I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life," the actress revealed in an interview.

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," said Emma in an interview with EPIX.com.

Kristen Stewart

In an interview with Flaunt, the Twilight actor said, "It's like you're trampling on someone's life without any regard. 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. 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," said the Titanic actor in an interview with The Sunday Times.

Mila Kunis

On The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson, Mila Kunis said, "I just don't think people need to know when I'm going to the restroom. 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," Daniel told Sky News.

Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt

Apparently, Brad Pitt and Angeline Jolie have hired a security team to monitor the social media content that their kids explore. "It's a scary new world," Angelina told People.

George and Amal Clooney

The couple have made the decision to refrain from social media. "I could easily say something stupid, and I also don’t think you need to be that available," Clooney told Variety.
