It's all about having a face-to-face chat, you see. Read what Julia Roberts has to say about Twitter, and why she won't join it...
Julia Roberts may know her way around a movie set, but the actress says she isn't so comfortable surfing the Internet.
Talking about her absence in the celebrity-heavy world of social media, Julia Roberts spoke out during an interview about her new film, August: Osage County.
Asked by Norwegian journalist Kjersti Flaa if she purposely shied away from the Twitter limelight, the Oscar-winning actress confessed: 'I haven't chosen to not be a part of it, I kind of just don't get it.'
She doesn't even have a Twitter account, naturally.
Highlighting the importance of face-to-face communication, Roberts continued: 'There's a lack of human connection to all of it that doesn't appeal to me.'
'Who am I talking to?' she said. 'See that's the thing I don't get. It's like screaming into the wind... there's a directness that I miss in the idea of the Internet or Twitter.'
Far from a hashtag pro, Julia Roberts will be the first to admit her not-so-tech-savvy status, adding: 'I picture Twitter on a pager which I know is also antiquated; I don't know where you Twitter.'
But like the Hollywood world she calls home, the 46-year-old star still had a few good words to say on Twitter: 'I know that it makes people feel connected and it brings people together and does all these awesome things, but me, I like to look at somebody or just have a more tangible connection; that's what I as a person am invested in.
If we didn't love our jobs so much, we'd almost be tempted to join her. #maybe
