“You can’t put out so much and then ask for your privacy and expect people to take you seriously all the time,” Olivia told HuffPost Live.

She continued, saying: “The only reason is to get more followers or get likes,” she explained. “You want the fame and attention … [but] if followers were the number one thing to getting a career, all the Kardashians would be in every big movie of the year.”

FYI: Olivia is wearing DKNY opaque tights.

  • Blah!

    Silly interview. And why do you call the paps? For fame or attention?

  • Barry

    She knows what she’s talking about.
    She played with her own image during a long time, before being recognized for her acting qualities.
    Aaron Sorkin basically revealed her.

    Well, in their defense, they are normal people, with friends and family, just like everyone else, who like to share favorite photos. So are non-celebrities like us, seeking attention when we share on Instagram?? I think they have the right to be like everyone else. If they abuse it, like the Kartrashians, then that’s a different story.

  • Violet

    Some use social media to keep in touch with fans and promote their movies. Then there are those like the Kardashians who cannot live without social media. I believe if social media shutdown tomorrow, they’d be empty and lost.

    She practically came out and sold both the Justin Timberlake story and her “private” bikini photos for Chris Pine! Stealth fame, not.

  • Jenny from the flop

    Couldn’t have said it better myself!

  • MeganKNOPE

    Well Olivia is an attention whore so she would know.

  • Maria

    Exactly. “Using Instagram for fame and attention” is stupid. Celebrities already HAVE fame, but those who are ONLY famous for their social media presence are pathetic.

  • Last Blonde In LA

    focus on yourself

  • SquidBillie

    Nope, she’s a hypocrite. Pot, meet kettle, Olivia.

  • Aaron Williams

    Yes because only people in the movie industry use Instagram. Other industries equip social media platforms to market and yes, gain more likes to measure how big their audience or customer interests are growing. I understand the self-obsessed and abuse of it, but don’t call out everyone, when everyone has the right to sell or be sold…by Instagram.

    Not true at all. Lots of stars have drifted into social media because they have to control that channel. Too many fake accounts.
