KUALA LUMPUR: “I don’t need to show unless I have to or want to,” is what is stated in popular actress Izara Aishah’s Instagram bio description.
True enough, fans and followers seldom see the 25-year-old share personal updates on her social media, as it’s tailored to show more of her career updates instead.
But apparently, her decision to not frequently update her social media accounts has cost her some acting jobs.
She took it out on Twitter to express her thoughts. “Some don’t hire me because I seldom update my social media. Now I know that talent and commitment of an actor isn’t important anymore. “
She later added: “Don’t say I don’t update at all, I always update about work but rarely about my personal life. I’m old fashioned, I don’t really like to check my phone all the time as I’ve got so much to do, honestly.”
Her followers gave a mixed response, with some telling her she should be more active in social media, while others stood by the actress saying she doesn’t need to do so in order to prove her presence in the industry.
