For some celebrities, social media is like air, but for others, they have little to no interest in exploring it at all. Some... gasp!... don’t even have a single social media account. Hey, it’s not for everyone. While it’s interesting to hear the reasons why actors or musicians don't share their lives or self-promote on Twitter and Instagram, including Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone, the reason why Emily Blunt selfies are in short supply might surprise you.

Why Doesn’t Emily Blunt Have Social Media?

So what if it’s not for everyone? For fans of celebs who don’t have a social media presence, it can feel like a bit of a disconnect, but oftentimes there’s a good reason why a star doesn’t want to hop on Instagram, Facebook, or Twitter.

The 30 Most Popular Celebs on Instagram

Emily Blunt has explained in the past why she’s noticeably absent from all social media, noting in a 2018 interview with Vanity Fair magazine: “Social media has changed the landscape so an encounter with you is valued more as a social-media currency than a genuine interaction.” So, yeah...don’t expect to nab a selfie with Blunt.

She also isn’t convinced that having a social media account helps with promoting her projects, explaining: “I think a movie lives or dies on word of mouth and the trailer. I have seen people do endless social-media campaigns and the movie tanks, so I don’t see a correlation.” She added: “I strongly believe that my job is to persuade you that I am playing somebody else, so exposing too much personally is just something I can’t get on board with.”

In 2015, Blunt told Vulture why she has always been noticeably absent online: "I'm like a dinosaur with social media...but it's also not really an organic sort of fit for me. I can barely remember to text people back!"

There’s nothing official about the Instagram account _emily_blunt_, but it is chock full of amazing images of Blunt on red carpets, in magazines, at awards shows and with her husband, John Krasinski. The bio notes: “Emily Blunt, A famous talented actress. Emily herself doesn't have an account, and this is a fan acc. Thank you for your support!!!”

The Instagram account emilybluntofficial sounds closer to the real deal, but don’t believe it, it’s just another one dedicated to all things Blunt, with a bio that explains it's a fan account.

John Krasinski's Social Media Features His Wife

Blunt and John Krasinski are total #relationshipgoals and thankfully, the actor does have an Instagram account that he occasionally posts to. That means that you might catch a glimpse of his gorgeous wife in some of his posts and, while she doesn’t play the social media game herself, this comes pretty darn close.

Like when Krasinski was proud of his wife's SAG Awards nomination:

(See also: When he was so proud of her hosting SNL and when he was totally bragging about co-starring with his wife, joking: “Yup... terrible decision to work together.”)

Other Anti-Social Media Celebs

Blunt is in good company with other big name celebrities who also say no to having a social media presence, including Jennifer Lawrence, Julia Roberts, and Emma Stone. Find out why they're not so keen about putting their lives out on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook.

Jennifer Lawrence

"I will never get Twitter. I'm not very good on a phone or technology," Jennifer Lawrence told BBC Radio 1. "I cannot really keep up with emails, so the idea of Twitter is so unthinkable to me."

Jennifer Garner

Jennifer Garner told People: "There is nothing I would put out that people would want to see. It's probably best to stay away. They don't want to see me and my mom friends after kindergarten drop-off."

Emma Stone

"It seems like everyone's cultivating their lives on Instagram or on different forms of social media, and what pictures look best of their day," Emma Stone explained to EPIX.com.

Julia Roberts

Julia Roberts told In Style: "Everyone has Instagram on their phone. And I just, yeah, if I had it I would be looking at it all the time."

Daniel Radcliffe

"I don't have Twitter and I don't have Facebook, and I think that makes things a lot easier because if you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you're doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously," Daniel Radcliffe explained to Sky News.
