When you’re famous, social media can feel especially intimidating—think of all of the stress that comes with maintaining your online persona, then think about how you’d feel if millions of fans were watching your every move. While some celebrities seem to revel in the attention, others avoid services like Twitter and Instagram entirely.

While we couldn’t write an exhaustive list of every celebrity who avoids social media, here are a few major names.

Jennifer Lawrence - The Hunger Games star’s reasoning for her internet absence is pretty solid.

"I will never get Twitter," she said in an interview on BBC 1. "I'm not very good on phones or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me."

In various other interviews, she cemented her no-social-media stance, but in 2018, she admitted that she does have several accounts. However, she only participates as a voyeur.

“I watch, I don’t speak,” she told InStyle.

“There is always so much backlash,” she continued. “So many people are listening and paying attention, and they have so many opinions about absolutely everything. I really don’t want to welcome that unless it’s absolutely necessary. I don’t want to put myself out there for no reason. Unless I’m promoting something or something really burns my onions, you won’t hear from me.”

Emily Blunt - Blunt says that she stays off the internet mainly because she can’t figure it out.

“It’s true,” she told Vulture. “I’m like a dinosaur with that stuff, No. 1. But it’s also not really an organic sort of fit for me. I can barely remember to text people back! I also feel that my job is to persuade people that I’m somebody else, so if I reveal too much, then I’m doing my job a disservice, in a way.”

In other words, she feels like social media would make her a less effective actor. Hey, she clearly knows what she’s doing—if staying off of the ‘net is part of her method, that’s her business.

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler - The comedians work together occasionally, and fan accounts have sprung up on Twitter celebrating their past films. However, Fey told ET neither actress has time to cultivate an actual online presence.

“There’s just not enough hours in the day for it, really,” Fey said. “We both work a lot. And if we have time that we’re not working, we want to be with our kids. I’m not going to be curating what my meal looked like for Instagram or something.”

Poehler does occasionally interact with the internet through her Smart Girls charity organization, but she jokes that she’s “waiting for [social media] to catch on.”

Fey told actor Tituss Burgess that she’s got another reason to stay offline.

“Why would I give away my jokes for free?” she reportedly told her friend.

Selena Gomez - Well, kind of. Gomez is Instagram’s third-most-followed celebrity, but she deleted the app from her phone when she realized it was harming her self esteem.

"I used to [post on Instagram] a lot, but I think it's just become really unhealthy for young people, including myself, to spend all of their time fixating on all of these comments and letting this stuff in," Gomez said.

Technically, Gomez is still on social media, but she avoids using services on her own phone. She only logs in occasionally (via someone else’s phone) to share things with her fans.

"I think our world is going through a lot, obviously,” she said. “But for my generation, specifically, social media has been terrible."

Brad Pitt - Pitt has largely avoided the social side of the internet. According to a 2014 interview with his then-wife Angelina Jolie, Pitt doesn’t really understand how social media works—and he has no interest in figuring it out.

In 2013, Pitt apparently joined the Chinese social networking website Sina Weibo, but the actor’s account only made a few posts before disappearing. That was confusing, since Sina Weibo is geared toward Chinese citizens, and Pitt had never visited China.

George Clooney - Clooney might be somewhat outspoken, but you definitely won’t find him tweeting out his opinions.

“I don’t understand why any famous person would ever be on Twitter,” he told Esquire. “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.”

Clooney went on to explain that he’s worried about getting into a late-night fight on social media, only to wake up and realize that his career is over.

Kristen Stewart - In 2014, the Twilight star said that she had a private Instagram, which she uses to keep in touch with friends. However, she avoids spending too much time on social media, and she doesn’t maintain public accounts.

"I know I sound ridiculous and really obvious; everyone says this, and I sound like an older person, but we could be doing way cooler [stuff],” Stewart said in a 2016 press conference. “It's so time consuming. We stalk each other, I stalk people, I get stalked, we all get stalked.”

Daniel Radcliffe - Radcliffe says that he enjoys the idea of social media, but he abstains. His reasoning: He’d get into trouble.

“I would get into fights,” he told Busy Tonight. “I don't have the mental fortitude for the internet. I worry that like I wouldn't—I wouldn't be rigorous enough to, like, actually do it myself, then it would become somebody else's responsibility, and then any kind of actual authenticity would seem lost for that. I've never quite been comfortable with it.”

Speaking to The New York Times, the former Harry Potter star expanded on those feelings.

“I think Twitter is great for certain things and certain people, there are people I really enjoy reading on Twitter,” he said. “But I don’t know why anyone in my position would ever be on it.”

Those are just some of the celebrities with a limited online presence; others include Emma Stone, Keira Knightley, and Scarlett Johansson. When you’re famous, the internet can seem dangerous—and there’s certainly nothing wrong with spending most of your time in the real world.
