Lizzy Caplin bans herself from social media.
The 'Masters of Sex' star refuses to use Facebook or Twitter because she wants to get acting jobs on her own merit rather than her popularity.
She said: ''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.
''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.''
The 32-year-old actress has no problems with stripping off in front of the cameras.
She added to Playboy magazine: ''It's certainly not boring. They give us pretty intense stuff to do.
''A standard-issue sex scene is one thing, but standing completely naked and masturbating in front of someone is quite another. Arrgh. All that stuff we did in the second season is just now coming back to me.''
