It seems like , but these 16 celebs all have the strength of character to buck this trend and live their lives without the invasion and performance anxiety that social media can bring.
From worries about privacy to concerns about boring their fans to death, the stars below all have their unique reasons for avoiding those 140 characters like the plague. But, that doesn’t stop us from imaging what their accounts might look like.
1. Jennifer Lawrence
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? JLaw told BBC Radio One that:
“I will never get Twitter. I’m not very good on a phone or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails, so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: and pictures of her cast mates on the toilet.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: She might occasionally have some worthwhile things to say, but this account most definitely has nothing to do with Lawrence:
— Jennifer Lawrence (@JLdaily)
2. Jake Gyllenhaal
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? Like almost every grandparent in the universe, Gyllenhaal believes social media is stopping young people from enjoying the real world:
“To me, this is a product of us all having smartphones and being consumed by that — we’re looking down. No one is looking up.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Pictures of his dog and rants about how nobody can ever spell his name.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: Gyllenhaal has fallen victim to a wealth of imposters on Twitter, and no, this weirdo isn’t him:
My idol? He died on a cross for me.
— Jake Gyllenhaal (@JakeGyllenhal)
Even more interesting considering Jake is Jewish. You couldn’t make it up!
3. Scarlett Johansson
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? In short, Scarlett simply finds social media boring, and , who can blame her?
“I don’t have a Facebook or a Twitter account. I can’t think of anything I’d rather do less than have to continuously share details of my everyday life.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Artistic photography and Soundcloud links to (go on, ScarJo, I know you want to!).
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: If you’re thinking this doesn’t sound like ScarJo, you’re right!
“I definitely believe in plastic surgery. I don’t want to be an old hag. There’s no fun in that.”
— Scarlett Johansson (@Scarlett_Jo)
4. Brad Pitt
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? Brad Pitt totally gets the validity of Twitter, but having already lived in the spotlight for decades without it, he simply doesn’t see the point. The 51-year-old actortold GQ magazine that:
“Listen, I see a benefit in it. You could, you know, combat the misconceptions of the misquotes immediately. And if I’d have had that in my younger days, I’d have used it because I felt quite used, and completely misunderstood, and misread, and not given the benefit of the doubt. You know, I felt that a lot in my first years. I would have brought some logic to the table, and brought it immediately. But now, at this point, I don’t want to bother with it.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Pure mellow vibes, man.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: This status might be kind of true, but the account definitely isn’t!
I’m one of those people you hate because of genetics. It’s the truth.
— Brad Pitt (@PersonalBrad)
5. Emma Stone
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? During a talk at the Guggenheim Stone, she implied that she found social media too confusing to even comprehend.
“Every time I talk about social media, I forget where I’m going. I go into a rabbit hole.”
What Their Account Would Be Like:
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: Unsurprisingly, Emma Stone wasn’t sharing this cringeworthy teenage snap of herself rocking braces.
Aww Emma Looks Soo Adorable!
— Emma Stone Web (@EmmaStoneWeb)
6. George Clooney
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? George Clooney has wisely realized that fame, Twitter and the sweet nectar don’t mix:
“If you’re gonna ask people to pay money to come see you in a movie, they don’t need to know your every thought all the time. I think there has to be some element of mystery. There’s a real danger when you’re really famous. I can have a drink or two at night; I don’t need to have an apparatus that, in a drunken joke, even, I could say something, go to sleep, and wake up in the morning and my career be over.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Videos of other celebs losing their minds over and pictures of whiskey and cufflinks.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: Nope, George hasn’t turned into a lame self-help book, this just isn’t him:
Look for something positive in each day, even if some days you have to look a little harder.
— Clooney (@GeorgeCloooney)
7. Kristen Stewart
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? After Twilight fever blew her world apart, knows that it’s better if you inner thoughts remain just that. The Cesar award-winning actress explained to USA Today that:
“What would I tweet about? Who are you talking to? What are you saying? Imagine sitting here right now and thinking, ‘That’s a good thing to say to the world?’ I can’t even understand it.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Just a long string of middle finger emojis.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: You might totally agree with this person, but it sure as hell isn’t Kristen:
I’m so glad, got his Oscar! It was about damn time..!!
— Kristen Stewart (@_KrisJStewart)
8. Angelina Jolie
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? Angelina Jolie’s internet skills haven’t improved since this video from 1994, when she was at the Santa Barbara Film Festival she explained that:
“As Brad knows, I don’t really know how to turn on a computer.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: A place to and spread compassion.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: If you imagine Angelina sitting down and making this meme about herself, this fake account gets even more ridiculous. Nice try.
If you dedicate yourself to helping others, youll be happier.
— Angelina Jolie (@AngeelinaJoIie)
9. Daniel Craig
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? Craig would rather not know what you’ve had for breakfast, thank you:
“I am bloody not [on Facebook]. And I’m not on Twitter either . . . ‘Woke up this morning, had an egg’? What relevance is that to anyone? Social networking? Just call each other up and go to the pub and have a drink.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Pictures of eggs.

my official twitter account has now to be verified.

Why Aren’t They On Twitter? After being the most famous kid in the universe, it’s perhaps not surprising that Radcliffe would now prefer to have some time to himself. The Harry Potter actor opened up to Sky News and explained:
“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.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: and some of his typically off-the-wall witticisms.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: Although I expect the real Radcliffe would love the laugh until you cry emoji, this isn’t him.
— Daniel Radcliffe (@RadcIiffeDanieI)
12. Jennifer Aniston
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? under the depressing “poor Jen” banner, so it’s unsurprising she keeps away from Twitter to avoid being a crusader:
“If I took to Twitter or anything, I would really send people over the edge, probably just correcting every false rumor.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Yoga poses, positive mantras and hopefully some bad hair day snaps to make us mere mortals feel better.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: Thrilling fake Jen, simply thrilling.
I fell so hard yesterday! I tripped on some stairs and hit my leg so hard! ha clumsy me!
— Jennifer Aniston (@TheJenAniston)
13. Mila Kunis
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? A modest Mila Kunis simply doesn’t think her day-to-day life warrants Tweeting all and sundry:
“It frightens me. It does. 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 people.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Loads of
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: To be fair, I don’t think this person does either…
I didn’t change. You just never knew me.

What Their Account Would Be Like: Steaks and behind-the-scenes Expendables snaps.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: At least fake Bruce Willis has a good sense of humor.
Spent the day distressing a chest of drawers. Have already made a cupboard cry!
— Bruce Willis (@BruceyWillis)
15. Winona Ryder
Why Aren’t They On Twitter? Winona Ryder make my heart melt when she explained to Elle that:
“I don’t use the Internet, but apparently you can find out everything on it.”
What Their Account Would Be Like: Hopefully loads of throwback snaps of when she was the patron saint of goths.
Fake Accounts To Watch Out For: I haven’t seen it, fake Winona, :
So what did everyone think of the Dilemma?
— Winona Ryder (@WinonaROnline)
