Isla Fisher opened up about one of the most popular social media platforms – Instagram and noted that it is “toxic for children.” Moreover, she also shared that she uses Instagram for only work and avoids sharing personal stuff.
“It’s toxic for children and [for] the proliferation of fake news,” the actress told The Independent Sunday. “They don’t have to meet publishing standards, it appeals to our base instincts.”
The 46-year-old actress further shared that she believes Instagram is not only toxic but it also leads to depression and anxiety due to which she is not a “fan” of Instagram.
“Actually, I’m being gentle – Instagram increases bullying and fear of missing out and leads to anxiety and depression,” she explained. “So, obviously, I am no fan of Instagram.”
Fisher, who has an Instagram account with 1.9 million followers, admitted that the only reason she uses Instagram is to share work-related content and avoid adding personal stuff.
“I try to focus as much as possible on [posting] work-related stuff, and not posting anything personal,” she added. “Sometimes I’ll post, like – it’s Valentine’s Day today, so I may post something later on.”
The actress also opened up about her TV series, “Wolf Like Me,” which was dropped on Jan. 13.
“Love is scary! Once you give somebody your heart and they give theirs, obviously you’re completely vulnerable,” she said about the show that explores love “mixed with shame and fear.”
Fisher shared that she loved playing Mary’s character because she was lonely and the actress, on the other hand, is very social in real life.
“I’m super gregarious, I love people, I socialise whenever I can,” she explained. “Mary’s the total opposite of me, and she’s got all this baggage and doesn’t feel safe being around people.”
Considering Fisher’s recent projects, she appeared in movies like “Godmothered” and “Blithe Spirit.”
On the personal front, she is married to actor Sacha Baron Cohen since 2010. The couple share three kids – Olive, 12, Elula, 8, and Montgomery, 4.
Cohen, on the other hand, will next feature in an action-adventure fantasy movie, “Mandrake the Magician,” which is based on a comic illusionist. The movie is helmed by director Etan Cohen.
