Helen Mirren slams social media
Actress Helen Mirren has branded all social media "distasteful" and says she deleted her Facebook profile after just a day of signing up.
The "Hundred-Foot Journey" actress, who is married to director Taylor Hackford, believes websites like Twitter can be useful for marketing and as a political "tool", but she won't use them herself, reports contactmusic.com.
When asked if she is on Twitter or another form of social media, the 68-year-old actress said: "No, I'm not a social media person. It's not that it upsets me, that's not the right word, but I find it distasteful. But I see it as a great tool politically and obviously it's a great marketing tool."
However, the "Queen" star admitted she once signed up for a Facebook account to keep in touch with her family. But she deleted her profile after just a day.
"Well, I did - I went on Facebook for about 24 hours because I have young members of my family and I travel a lot and I wanted to be in touch," she said.
"But I found very rapidly - literally within 24 hours - that I just found it so intrusive and I didn't want strangers wanting to become my friends. I just didn't want that. There was something really scary about it and I didn't like it at all," she added.
