Scarlett Johansson attends the 92nd Annual Academy Awards at Hollywood and Highland on February 09, 2020 in Hollywood, California.

Scarlett Johansson recently revealed why she hardly uses any social media. The Black Widow star discussed her absence from most social media platforms in a new interview this week, attributing it to being too sensitive.

“I honestly am too fragile of a person to have social media,” Johansson, 38, said. “My ego is too fragile. I can’t deal with it. My brain is too fragile, I’m like a delicate flower. I have enough anxiety.” She admitted that she experimented with the idea of joining Instagram. The actress was even on the app “once for three days.” It didn’t take long for her to delete it after she got too immersed while looking at someone else’s posts.

When she realized she would spend 20 minutes looking at somebody’s Instagram page who worked for a friend of hers, she felt her time was wasted. “I now know you have a pit bull, two daughters, and live in Burbank,” she recalled. She would then compare herself. “I now feel like I should move to California, get this specific dog and change my life in all these ways.”

She added, “I felt so bad, like I was missing out on this random person’s life. I can’t do this. I’m too fragile, I have so much anxiety about other things.”

TikTok For Fun

She stays away from most social outlets for the most part. But the New York native does go on TikTok for her skincare brand, The Outset. “[TikTok is] definitely fun,” Johansson said. “Every time I see it in our office, I then become like a three-year-old with her mom’s phone where I get completely absorbed into it.” She joked, “So, that’s how I know I can’t have it.”
