Los Angeles, Dec 7: The London-born actress Daisy Ridley, who quit Instagram this year, says social media is not good for mental health.
“The more I read about teenage anxiety, the more I think it’s highly unhealthy for people’s mental health,” Ridley told Radio Times magazine, theguardian.com reported.
“It’s such a weird thing for young people to look at distorted images of things,” she added.
Ridley has been vocal about quitting social media. She left Instagram after witnessing backlash for sharing a post about victims of gun violence.
She will next be seen playing a role of Rey in “Star Wars: The Last Jedi”.
