Selfies are everything these days, but Oscar-winning actress Cate Blanchett is NOT a fan of the social media craze. She said that it’s especially ‘pathetic’ when adults partake in the activity — see what else she said!
Kim Kardashian‘s favorite hobby is taking sexy selfies of herself — I mean, she created a whole book full of selfies of herself! But Cate Blanchett, 46, just doesn’t get it! She explained that she “just can’t handle” this whole selfie culture in a new interview.
“I cannot for the life of me work out why adults are participating in that s***,” Cate told Yahoo in a new interview. She went on to say she “just can’t handle” selfie culture. Cate explained that she thinks it’s sad that women are constantly looking for validation. When women go makeup free, people make a big deal out of it. Cate says, ‘I think it’s because people constantly are taking pictures of ourselves to send them to people to see if they like me, “do they like me? It’s pathetic, the whole thing about people worrying about what other people are going to think.”
Amen to that, sista! We shouldn’t care what other people think! Yes, it’s easier said than done, but at the end of the day, we would be much better off if we cared a little less about other’s opinions. Cate went on to explain, “Of course you want people to go see the films that you make, of course you want them to enjoy them. But I’m not out there saying, “Do they like the way I look? Do they like that look on the red carpet?” You have to say, “This is what I’m doing right now.”
