Actress Susan Sarandon says a world full of selfies makes everyone feel “self-conscious”.
The 69-year-old actress said there is a real sense of disconnect with social media and the pressures to look a certain way, which is only amplified by having to maintain an online profile, reported Female First.

“I think the whole culture with selfies and all of this business has made us more and more self-conscious and less and less attached to our tribe,” Sarandon said.
The “Thelma & Louise” actress loves to interact with people in real life but can’t understand why every time she enters a room people turn to their phones to tell people she’s there.
“I love talking to people that I meet, that I’m important to for whatever reason. That might seem somewhat artificial, but I don’t mind. I don’t find that a burden at all. But what’s interesting is that now when I enter a room…everybody picks up their phone and starts saying that I’m there,” the actress said.
