Elizabeth Olsen bans social media

Elizabeth Olsen has banned social media.

The 'Avengers: Age of Ultron' star refuses to use micro-blogging site Twitter or similar websites because she feels as though it is used to "control" people's image.

She said: "I don't [use] social media, and I feel like that's how people control their image. My image, in my mind, is just to disappear. I just want people to see the work that I'm proud of.

"I feel like you let people touch you when you have Instagram or Twitter, and I don't want to be touched all the time. I'm not going to do it - ever."

The 26-year-old actress would much rather make a connection to her fans through her work and has admitted she finds it "annoying" when people brand young people in a negative way.

She added: "It is so annoying to me the way my generation is written about - that we are all entitled slackers and hackers."

Meanwhile, Elizabeth is looking forward to taking a starring role in the upcoming Marvel film and said she was drawn to the franchise by the fascinating nature of her character, Wanda Maximoff.

She added to the May issue of Fashion magazine: "She's grounded and centered because she's always receiving information - she knows everyone's everything because of her telekinesis.

"She has access to the past, the present, the future and parallel universes - she can connect with all of them."
