LONDON, U.K. -- Britney, Demi and Ashton might love Twitter and stars like Lindsay and Miley are constantly updating their Facebook statuses – but don’t expect Keira Knightley to come to the online celebrity party.
“I hate the Internet,” “The Pirates of the Caribbean” star told Britain’s Daily Telegraph on Monday.
The actress said being chained to e-mail and Twitter accounts makes her feel like less of a person.
“I find it dehumanizing to constantly check e-mails or social sites which have become so fashionable,” she continued.
Keira might not be logging many hours in front of a computer screen, but the actress did admit to spending a few in front of the small screen.
She told the paper she’s “obsessed” with the British soap opera “Emmerdale” and FX’s “Nip/Tuck.”
She also insisted that despite her career as an actress, that she’s not wrapped up in the fame game of Hollywood.
“I am not a celebrity. I don’t go home or out with my friends saying I’m a celebrity, and I don’t ask to be treated like a queen,” she explained.
Adding, “My mum and dad would not like that.”
