It is undeniable that social media has become a huge part of our lives these days. Technology and social media have helped us connect and spread the news and social consciousness to the people around the world.
However, it is equally undeniable that modern technology and social media platforms have negative effects on us mentally. With that, here are three of the most famous names in Hollywood who hate tech and social media.

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA – NOVEMBER 18: Actress Angelina Jolie attends the Los Angeles premiere of MSNBC Films’ “Paper & Glue: A JR Project” at Museum Of Tolerance on November 18, 2021 in Los Angeles, California.
Angelina Jolie has continued to be one of the most beautiful faces in the world of acting. Jolie’s timeless beauty is not also just about her face, but also about her heart for the advocacies she continues to fight for.
For the longest time, it has always been known that Angelina Jolie and social media do not get along. The A-list actress belongs to Hollywood’s list of people that can not be seen on social media.
According to Business Insider, Angelina Jolie admitted to USA Today in 2011 that she had been exploring “Amazon.com” for the first time and had been overwhelmed by the sheer number of options available. Jolie stated that her brain got too scattered and wires are all going in different directions. This incident made her switch back to catalogs.
Some celebrities’ tech capabilities are limited, and the actress herself admitted to it. She had previously acknowledged not understanding how to turn on a computer only a few years prior.
However, in August 2021, the actress finally has her own Instagram account, wherein she shares most of her humanitarian causes. Her first post on the platform was about a letter that was given to her by a teenage girl from Afghanistan.

LONDON, ENGLAND – OCTOBER 10: George Clooney attends “The Tender Bar” Premiere during the 65th BFI London Film Festival at The Royal Festival Hall on October 10, 2021 in London, England.
George Clooney is another actor that joins the celebrities-hate-technology list. Unlike Angelina Jolie, Clooney, until this day, still does not have a social media platform.
One of the most popular names on the American screen, Clooney is an actor, producer, writer, director, and also an advocate.
Since his on-screen debut in 1978, he has gone on to establish himself as one of Hollywood’s most desirable A-list leading men.
He is well known for numerous movies such as “Ocean’s Eleven,” “Confessions of a Dangerous Mind,” “Good Night, and Good Luck,” “Leatherheads,” “The Ides of March,” and many more.
The actor has vocally stated his limited interest in both Twitter and Facebook.
However, George Clooney has social media presence even without lifting a finger. Some fans can still see the actor’s face online since numerous fan pages do exist.

LONDON, ENGLAND – FEBRUARY 08: Adele attends The BRIT Awards 2022 at The O2 Arena on February 08, 2022 in London, England.
Another one on the list is one of the most famous British singers, Adele. Adele Laurie Blue Adkins is one of the best-selling music artists in the world, having sold more than 120 million albums worldwide.
Adkins was brought up by a young single mother in a variety of working-class locations in London’s capital. In the meantime, when Adkins was honing her skills at a government-sponsored secondary school for the performing arts when a friend began posting songs Adkins had written and recorded on the social networking website Myspace. Her songs gradually drew the attention of record labels, and she got a contract with XL Recordings in 2006.
Even with her international talent being acclaimed globally, Adele has her own Instagram account. However, it can be noticed that it is used for the promotion of her tours, albums, and professional whereabouts.
Adele also revealed previously in an interview that her managing team holds the password of her social media accounts. According to Cracked, the singer admitted that using social media distracts her from being productive throughout the whole day. With that, Adele has limited herself to using the platform.
