Blythe Danner: I'm too old to use social media

Blythe Danner thinks she's too old to use social media.

The 73-year-old actress' daughter Gwyneth Paltrow convinced her to join photo-sharing website Instagram, but Blythe quickly decided to delete her account after realising she doesn't "feel the need" to be active on the platform or any other similar site.

She shared: "I'm glad I'm older in that I don't feel the need. I was on Instagram for about two minutes. My daughter put me on, than I said, 'That's not for me.' "

However, Blythe admitted she still takes a keen interest in the activities of her daughter and her grandchildren, Apple and Moses, on social networks.

She told the Metro newspaper: "I check in with my grandchildren and my daughter but other than that, I have no desire."

Blythe said Gwyneth encouraged her to join Instagram because she thought it would help provide a behind-the-scenes look into her new movie 'I'll See You in My Dreams', the comedy-drama directed by Brett Haley.

Blythe explained: "She thought I should be doing things of the moment. She loves the movie and she thought people should see what I was up to. I said: 'Well, I'll leave that up to you. You tell them.' "
