Say Cheese? Nah! 10 Hilariously Unselfie-ish Celebs

By Krystal Brown

There are some celebrities that go above and beyond in order to keep their fans happy, and one of these things is taking a selfie. Fans can’t help themselves when near their favourite celebrities. However, there have been some celebrities that refuse selfies.

Miley once explained that she doesn’t like taking selfies with fans because she finds it embarrassing. This was in 2013, and not much has changed since. She is probably one of the most famous pop stars, but this doesn’t mean that she can’t be camera shy like a lot of us are. If she ever gets caught by a fan, she simply just sticks her tongue out for the selfie.

We know that Amy is hilarious, and she has an approachable look about her. So it’s with no surprise that when she’s out and about, she gets hassled by fans wanting a selfie. However, Amy has stated that she completely draws a line when it comes to non-consensual pictures. She doesn’t like it when she notices fans taking pictures of her that they haven’t asked for.

When Justin was first recognized, he became one of the most famous celebrities in the world, and it happened so fast! At first, because he was younger, he loved making his fans happy by taking a picture with them, but since then, he’s become a bit tired of it. Justin told Time in 2016 that he felt like a zoo animal and said, “It has gotten to the point that people won’t even say hi to me or recognize me as a human”.

Amy Schumer

Amy Schumer also doesn’t like to have pictures with fans. Amy told EW that it all began when someone invaded her personal space whilst she was in South Carolina. She said, “I will not take pictures with people anymore and it’s because of this dude in Greenville.” Amy had asked this guy to not take pictures of her, and he didn’t listen. Schumer has also stated that she generally just struggles with the effects that fame has on her privacy as a whole.

When a celebrity refuses to take pictures with fans, doesn’t mean that they don’t like them or running into them. Chris Pratt has openly said that he genuinely just doesn’t like photos, but will instead offer his fans a handshake instead. He explained to HelloGiggles that most times, the fans will continue to take the picture anyway.

Jennifer Lawrence

Jennifer stated that when fans were becoming too much, she would avoid even going out to dinner just in case she’d bump into anyone. However, she has since learned to say no, and told CNN, “Sometimes I’m nice, sometimes I’m in a bad mood. If I’m at dinner and I’m eating and somebody wants me to stand up and take a picture – that’s actually helped with my anxiety is knowing that I don’t have to say yes and I can say no.”

Shailene Woodley

Some celebrities love showing off what they do and how much money they spend, but Shailene is completely opposite. She is an introvert and likes to keep things simple and quiet… This includes taking pictures with her fans. She said to Glamour, “I’ll give you a hug, but I’m not going to take a photo with you. And people ask why, and they don’t understand why. With social media, so much of our lives I feel like is a projection of who we want to be or who we wish we were. And I refuse to buy into that, especially for younger generations.” Fair play, Shailene.

Maisie Williams

Since Game of Thrones, Maisie has taken on big and small screen projects, but she has also had to set some boundaries with her fans. She explained to Nylon that she doesn’t understand people’s impulse to take a picture with somebody they like. She said, “If I was really in love with someone, I wouldn’t just want a picture. I would want to hang out with them.”

Emma Watson

In 2017, Emma briefly spoke about pictures for her cover story for Vanity Fair. She explained that it’s a matter of data privacy, and said, “If someone takes a photograph of me and posts it, within two seconds they’ve created a marker of exactly where I am within 10 meters. They can see what I’m wearing and who I’m with. I just can’t give that tracking data”.

Kit follows along with Maisie Williams when it comes to pictures with fans, and he especially doesn’t like having his pictures taken when he’s together with his wife and co-star, Rose Leslie. He explained to Elle that he remembers shooting season 1 very fondly because they “weren’t being recognized on the street”. Now the show has wrapped up, we hope he isn’t being hassled as much by fans.
