Actor Andrew Garfield says he wants to stay away from social media because he is too sensitive and it wouldn’t benefit his mental health.
“I don’t think it would be beneficial to my mental health. I think I’m too sensitive, and I want to stay that way. What these platforms promise is some form of negative or positive feedback, and either one can be addictive for someone who equates attention with love,” Garfield said, he told Fox News.
Garfield added: “It’s not great if you want to have a deep experience of being alive.”
He revealed, “I have a Twitter account, but it’s not like a ‘me’ thing. It’s like, I just have it to follow news and people that are funny. I don’t have a reason to really use it particularly.”
The actor will next be seen in The Eyes Of Tammy Faye, Michael Showalter’s feature film based on a documentary of the same name and starring Jessica Chastain in the title role. The film is scheduled to be released on Sept. 24, 2021.
