Honestly, can Jodie Comer do any wrong? Her acting is off the charts (those accents though), her skin is impeccable and her style – well, she knows exactly what she’s doing there too. Plus, she just seems like great craic. Not to be selfish, but we were kind of gutted recently when we went for a creep on Jodie’s Instagram, to see what she’s up to, get some fashion inspo’, and maybe even an insight into her skincare routine. Alas, we found she’s not that active across social media whatsoever.

But of course, there’s a reason for this. We can only imagine what it’s like to be a celebrity who’s active on social media (I mean, it can get a bit much as a regular Joe soap, never mind throwing millions and millions of eyeballs into the mix), so who can blame Jodie for not wanting to spend her time scrolling through pages and pages of comments? Not us, that’s who.

Jodie explained to OK that her absence from Instagram and Twitter is down to her not wanting to see negative things about herself. “Until I get some self-control and manage not to go and seek out negative things on social media, I think it’s best for me to take a little step back.”

She continued, “Also now, in this time, I am trying to be a little bit conscious of what I use it for. It feels a bit wrong to me to be doing any sort of self-promotion at the moment, so I’m trying to be a little bit wary of that, while also being communicative and speaking to people.”

Jodie hasn’t been active on social media in quite a while, having deactivated her Twitter account earlier this year and also hasn’t posted anything on her Instagram page since May. Speaking to Two Shot Podcast recently, Jodie explained how people feel the need to comment on her Scouse accent, which she slightly changes for an American audience.

“I know all the people who comment on YouTube are aliens anyway, but I was speaking as myself [in an interview] and they were saying I’m losing my accent. I’d adapted it a little bit because it’s an American audience and a lot of the time people are like: ‘What is she saying?'”

We mean, completely fair. But we’re still kind of hoping she’ll make another appearance on our Instagram feed soon.
