5 Stars Who Say They Won’t Join Social Networking Sites

Refusing to join twitter, facebook and other such social networking sites, these 5 celebrities all say they won’t ever join. Some think they’re not interesting enough or don’t have anything exciting to say on a regular basis, while others even believe they might get in trouble if they’re given a place to voice their often controversial opinions. Some just don’t want people peeping in to their lives and don’t believe their would-be followers need constant updates about their whereabouts. They all have their own personal reasons for swearing off social networks and say they probably won’t ever make an appearance on one.


Benedict Cumberbatch


Benedict won’t join twitter because he thinks he has little to say: “I do think I would suffer from verbal diarrhoea, the four-line phrase is not one of my tools of choice! “I just think it would take up too much of my time. I’d be too worried about getting it right and I certainly wouldn’t want to farm it out for someone else to write. It’s a great tool for making people aware of causes, or giving people access to things that might be a treat.”


Dakota Fanning

Dakota isn’t interested in letting people know what she’s doing all of the time: ”I really don’t need to let people know where I am and what I’m doing. I feel like a lot of people want their privacy but yet they tell people where they are. ”It’s just not for me. I don’t have a facebook or twitter and I won’t ever. There’s plenty of impostors out there. There’s enough Dakota Fannings on twitter for all of us.”


Elton John

Elton thinks he speaks his mind too often so it would get him in to trouble: ”It would end my career. I’d be in prison after about two days. I mean, no, God almighty. Me and my big mouth, no thank you. That would be the end of the career.”


Lily Collins

Lily doesn’t want people to get to know her personally: “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.’”


Paul Bettany

Paul doesn’t need people to hear the boring details of his life: “I won’t use Twitter because it has the word twit in it. It’s not my thing. I don’t need people to know what I’m doing every ten minutes. ‘Just going to the toilet, love you all, twit.’ There was somebody pretending to be me on Facebook. A friend, who knows me very well, said: ‘He’s having a much more exciting time than you.'”
