Hollywood star Cate Blanchett avoids social media like the plague because she thinks adults shouldn’t indulge in such silly things as selfies (especially taking your own photos or quick videos with a smartphone and posting them on Instagram, Google Circles, Youtube, Facebook, etc.
An undeniably beautiful and stylish woman, Blanchett prefers to be recognized for her talent on the big screen and the stage. With two new films, “Carol” and “Truth,” already gaining Oscar buzz, and a recently-adopted daughter added to her family, the well-decorated actress chocks up her success to choosing meaningful parts, and avoiding social media at all costs.
“I cannot for the life of me work out why adults are participating in that sh-t,” she recently told Yahoo Beauty! She is bored to death of red carpet 360-degree cameras and the desperate validation of selfies, which is perhaps a shame.
Well, wannabes have argued: “When you have arrived like Cate Blanchett, you don’t need selfies. In fact you can get selfless because many people will fall over themselves to take your photo and post for free or even pay you to pose for them.”
Presently, it would seem like selfies are helping the popularity ministry of wannabes. Or do you agree instead with Blanchett?
