There's a reason why you won't find The Amazing Spider-Man actress Emma Stone on social media, and that is because of the 26-year-old's disdain for "keeping up with the Joneses."
In a talk with The Los Angeles Times and EPIX's five-part TV series Hollywood Sessions, Stone said that she could not understand why her peers have the constant need to partake in social media.
"It's that need to be liked, that need to be seen, that need to be validated, in a way, through no one that you know," she explained. "And so people ask the question about fame, or what it feels like, and it seems like everybody knows what that feels like. It seems like everyone's cultivating their lives on Instagram or on different forms of social media, and what pictures looks best of their day."
"It's this very modern 'keeping up with the Joneses.' It's almost impossible to find someone that's not, in some way, on the Internet," she added.
The closest the starlet ever came to being public on social media was on Twitter, but she immediately abandoned the site.
Stone's personal opinions about social media vary greatly from the thoughts of the character she plays on Birdman. Her character slams her actor-father for his aversion towards social media: "You're scared to death, like the rest of us, that you don't matter. And you know what? You're right. You don't."
