Actress Lizzy Caplin ‘Masters of Sex’
Actress Lizzy Caplin says she does not use social media platforms like Facebook or Twitter as she wants to get acting jobs on her own merit rather than her popularity.
“I’ve never been on Twitter, Facebook, Myspace or Instagram. I know myself well enough to know that I would spend far too much time obsessing over a tweet or a photo or an opinion. I understand I’m part of a business, that it’s not driven just by artistic integrity. You have to take into account the commerce.
The 32-year-old “Masters of Sex” star said acting demands a person to be someone else so she feels for her to be a successful actor, it is better if people know her less.
“But being online is not my job. My job is to convince you that I’m somebody else. The less people know about me, the better I’m allowed to be at my job. I don’t want to get a job because I have 500,000 Twitter followers. I want to get a job because I earned it,” she said.
