Why Elizabeth Olsen Says She'll Never Get On Social Media

Jessica Schiffer

Unfortunately for us (and our enormous girl crushes) the Olsen twins are notoriously private people who enter the spotlight for work matters only. Well, it appears that their equally cool younger sister, Elizabeth Olsen, is following in their footsteps. The talented actress covers the May issue of Canada’s Fashion magazine and opens up inside about why she wouldn’t dare join social media, saying:

“I don’t [use it], and I feel like that’s how people control their image. My image, in my mind, is just to disappear. I just want people to see the work that I’m proud of. I feel like you let people touch you when you have Instagram or Twitter, and I don’t want to be touched all the time. I’m not going to do it—ever.”

As fans this news definitely bums us out, but we can’t entirely blame her: When you live your life being chased by the spotlight, you’re bound to treasure privacy when you can get it, right? So kudos to her for taking a stand against the over-sharing culture of today, but…of course…if she has a change of heart, we’ll totally support it!
