" Well, I did - I went on Facebook for about 24 hours because I have young members of my family and I travel a lot and I wanted to be in touch, she said."
Los Angeles, July 27 - Actress Helen Mirren has branded all social media distasteful and says she deleted her Facebook profile after just a day of signing up.

The Hundred-Foot Journey actress, who is married to director Taylor Hackford, believes websites like Twitter can be useful for marketing and as a political tool, but she won't use them herself, reports contactmusic.com.

When asked if she is on Twitter or another form of social media, the 68-year-old actress said: No, I'm not a social media person. It's not that it upsets me, that's not the right word, but I find it distasteful. But I see it as a great tool politically and obviously it's a great marketing tool.

However, the Queen star admitted she once signed up for a Facebook account to keep in touch with her family. But she deleted her profile after just a day.

Well, I did - I went on Facebook for about 24 hours because I have young members of my family and I travel a lot and I wanted to be in touch, she said.

But I found very rapidly - literally within 24 hours - that I just found it so intrusive and I didn't want strangers wanting to become my friends. I just didn't want that. There was something really scary about it and I didn't like it at all, she added.
