These days most celebrities have some kind of social media they use to promote new projects and/or give fans small glimpses of their lives. There are even those, like the Kardashians and Jenners, who have taken their social media game and turned it into an art form. They often aspire fans to model their own profiles after them.
There are, however, those Hollywood A-listers who do not see the benefits of social media and therefore have mostly stayed away. Stars like Scarlett Johansson and Emma Stone don’t necessarily want to share every moment of their lives with the Internet, while others like Benedict Cumberbatch, Keira Knightley and Angelina Jolie feel they aren’t tech savvy enough to be effective at it.
Then there are celebrities like Kristen Stewart and Jake Gyllenhaal who see social media—and smartphones in general—as a way of losing personal connectivity with others, while celeb parents like Kate Winslet and Sandra Bullock ban social media from their homes because of its potential negative impact on their kids’ self-worth.
Here are 15 stars that have decided to stay away from social media and some lessons you can learn from them.
