It is one of the world’s most famous lesbians, Ellen DeGeneres, who holds the record for the most retweeted photo in the history of Twitter thanks to her Oscar night all-star selfie.
The talk show host is a prolific tweeter and last week, got fellow out star Matt Bomer started on the social media site. In less than a week, Bomer has more than 235,000 followers.
But one out star who you probably won’t ever see following in the social media footsteps of DeGeneres, Bomer and others including Alan Cumming, John Barrowman, Rosie O’Donnell, Ricky Martin and Margaret Cho, is Jonathan Groff.
The star of HBO’s Looking says in the new issue of Scene Magazine: ‘I haven’t googled myself in five years. I stay completely unhooked when it comes to social media.’
Five years ago, Groff probably would not have found much on himself on Google anyway. But since then, he’s been a recurring cast member on Glee, co-starred for a season with Kelsey Grammer on Boss and also had a high-profile romance with Zachary Quinto.
‘I heard from friends of friends or whatever that like, "This picture was online" or "I saw you and Zach walking down the street." So I’d know that things like that existed, but I don’t ever look at it.’
We assume this means he won’t be starting an Instagram account and posting selfies anytime soon either.
