In 2014, she stated that she does not use social media because of all the sexist comments people direct to female celebrities.
She told, “I’m astonished at the freedom with which a depressingly large number of men feel they can just say what they want and write the most hideously misogynistic stuff about women, I look at my daughter and think, and added, "God, I didn’t think this was coming your way.’ I really didn’t. The misogyny on the internet is a whole area that I would never have thought was coming.”
