It seems like everyone’s on Facebook these days, but some of the most famous people in America still aren’t—including three people connected to The Social Network. The Daily Beast lists 12 celebs who have yet to join up:

  • Justin Timberlake: Timberlake plays former Facebook president Sean Parker in The Social Network, but in real life, “I’m sort of admittedly ridiculously stupid with computers,” he once said.
  • Aaron Sorkin: The Social Network screenwriter recently explained why he doesn’t have a Facebook account: “I don’t have that much to share, and when I do, I’ll call somebody and say I had a good cupcake today.”

  • Drew Barrymore: She simply doesn’t like “this compulsive, instantaneous, over- information, lack-of-privacy, weirdo aspect of the world,” she once said.
  • George Clooney: As he once told reporters, “I would rather have a prostate exam on live television by a guy with very cold hands than have a Facebook page.”
  • Miley Cyrus: Turns out the pop star has said at least one meaningful thing, and it was about Facebook: “I feel like I hang out with my friends and they’re so busy taking pictures of what they’re doing and putting them on Facebook that they’re not really enjoying what they’re doing.”
