Unsurprisingly, Jennifer Lawrence is not all that fond of technology these days. Well, at the very least, she’s a bit wary of it. She still has an iPhone and all that, but she’ll never join Twitter, basically because we’re all assholes who have been rude about her and she can’t really get into all that.
During an interview with Nick Grimshaw on BBC Radio 1’s breakfast show, JLaw had the following to say (via E Online):
“I will never get Twitter. I’m not very good on phones or technology. I cannot really keep up with emails so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me.”
“I don’t really understand what it is. It’s like this weird enigma that people talk about. It’s fine, I respect that, but no, I’ll never get a Twitter. If you ever see a Facebook, Instagram or Twitter that says it’s me, it most certainly is not.”
The morning show host noted how serious Jen got with that answer. “I had that one locked and loaded,” she said with a laugh. “I really like laser focused [on that answer]…it’s because the internet has scorned me so much that I feel like it’s that girl in high school that I’m like, ‘Oh, you want to talk about her? Yeah I’ll do that!’ Take my hoops off, I’m ready to go.”
Alright, let me say something as a JLaw… well, not fan, but moderate enjoyer of: I hate hate HATE when celebrities (and it’s always particularly women who do this) pretend they’re totally clueless about technology. It’s not cute, it’s not quirky, it’s not funny. It just makes you look dumb. It’s 2014 and whether or not you USE those sites, unless you live under a rock, you at least fucking know what they are and what they’re about.
That being said, I understand why she doesn’t want to be on social media. It’s not a great place for regular people sometimes, let alone celebrities.
