Academy Award winning actress Cate Blanchett thinks social media and the selfie culture are a joke. 

In an interview with Yahoo Beauty, the actress says she doesn’t understand why “adults are participating in that s**t”. 

“It’s pathetic, the whole thing about people worrying about what other people are going to think. I just can’t handle it” she said. 

The mum of four said while social media can be a great way of building community, it can also create jealousy. 

Blanchett believes that it comes back to self respect. “It’s a huge thing. ‘Like me! Like me!’. The like and the dislike is just totally primary schoolyard”. 

The actress is not one to put her vanity first, showcasing completely make up free acting in Blue Jasmine.
