Social media is a great tool for celebrities to connect with their fans. With the rapid growth in internet usage around the world, more and more fans follow their favorite celebrity in order to get an insight into their life. Many idolize them, while some follow just to keep a track of their upcoming projects.
However, many celebrities prefer to stay off social media. Actress Scarlett Johansson recently revealed the real reason why she prefers to not use any social media platform. Many celebrities value their privacy and that’s why they stay off the grid. They already have dozens of paparazzi following them around, so the last thing they want is some crazy fan who invades their privacy using their social media.
Scarlett Johansson revealed why she is not on social media
In a world where Jennifer Lopez exists, there is a person like Scarlett Johansson who prefers to stay away from social media. The actress revealed that it’s for her own good, as it takes a toll on her mental health. Johansson previously appeared on The Skinny Confidential Him & Her podcast and said,
“I honestly am too fragile a person to have social media. I can’t. My ego is too fragile. My brain is too fragile. I’m like a delicate flower.”
She further explained that it would make her really anxious to go through all the comments that people have made about her, so she just stays away from it.

The actress had a social media account for three days
Scarlett Johansson then revealed that she had a social media account for “three days.” She became obsessed with it as she spent 17 minutes stalking someone who worked for her friend. She said,
I started realizing that I’d spent 20 minutes looking at somebody’s Instagram page, someone who worked for a friend of mine. I now know you have a pit bull and two daughters and you live in, like, Burbank. I was like, what? I just wasted 17 minutes of time. I now feel like I should move to California, get this specific dog, and change my life in all these ways. I felt so bad. Like I was missing out on this random person’s life.”
Johansson concluded by saying she “becomes like a 3-year-old with their mom’s phone” as she gets obsessed with social media and that’s why doesn’t use it.
