Sandra Bullock might be known as one of Hollywood's female sweethearts, but if there's one thing she won't do with her fans it's take a selfie. In fact, the actress and mother-of-two says she thinks the selfie trend is used as a "false projection of one's life" and that's why she doesn't want to take part in any self-portrait photographs.
According to Xpose on Saturday, Bullock even goes as far as saying using a camera photo for the snaps has a negative impact on people's lives.
She said, "I hate taking selfies. I will not take a selfie that I can't erase. I don't post or do any of that stuff. People have these worlds they post and it's about projecting an image and getting likes. I read a great article about how there's a higher rate of depression because people are looking at everyone else's Facebook and seeing this picture-perfect life."
What's more, Bullock is worried how these images can affect young people.
She explained, "We are not representing our lives truthfully. Like when you're yelling at your child, you're not taking a selfie of you being a horrible parent. No, you are waiting for the perfect selfie. 'Do I look thinner now? Do I look great?' It's this false projection of one's life. Hollywood has now gone global. Everyone's Hollywood now.''
The Miss Congeniality star added, "I think it's frightening for kids and young people, developing who they are, to have that false sense of acceptance based on an image. How do you unravel that when it's being pushed hard?''
