As much as we all wish that we could follow Jennifer Lawrence on Twitter or be her friend on Facebook, that is something that is not likely to happen.

Jennifer Lawrence admitted to The Daily Beast that she stays away from most Internet technology, especially Google. She reveals that when one of her actress-friends was getting upset about red carpet pictures, she typed in "Jennifer Lawrence fat and ugly" into the search engine to make a point.

“It’s like in Mean Girls, when she’s like, “If somebody is saying something bad about you, do you want to hear it?’ And she’s like, ‘No.’ She’s absolutely right. You don’t want to hear it. I’m a one-year-clean no Googler.”

Lawrence went on to explain how she feels about Internet presence. “Everybody was talking yesterday about Twitter and Instagram and Tumblr. It was really confusing….What’s Pinterest? I don’t have it. I know by the time I get it, it’ll be something else. I bought a CD case less than a year ago.

Should other celebrities follow in Lawrence’s footsteps? Or do you think that Jennifer should join the social media sphere like her celebrity peers?

And yet...that's not a verified Twitter and if you read it, it's only promo-ing a couple of Twitter users (who clearly run the Twitter)

I really like Jennifer's personality -she seems genuinely unaffected and grounded. I respect her choice not to use social media -it seems a bit of a shame though I can understand her wanting to avoid the trolls -they are grotesque. -Like the others -I'd really like to tell her that I admire her beauty and talent.

Yeah i agree with Jeb. I am a bit sad she doesn't have Twitter so it's easier to follow what she's doing and where she's promoting so I can go and tell her how much I love her, lol. But I know the internet trolls would use it for all the wrong reasons and drown out her adoring fans.

I watched her performance in The Hunger Games and I have liked her ever since. Quality acting right there. I must say she isn't "fat and ugly". She has a great body and doesn't seem like she is scared to show it off. I just wish she had a twitter just so I could tell her how beautiful she really is.

I love Jen Lawrence for this! Social media is cool, fun, and useful, but no one HAS to have it!
