Cate Blanchett has called the selfie culture "pathetic" and said she can't handle the need some people have to ensure everyone likes them.

The Oscar-winning actress told Yahoo! that you'd never catch her pouting on social media or pulling her best duck face.

"I cannot for the life of me work out why adults are participating in that s**t," she said bluntly.

"I just can't handle it. Of course you want people to go see the films that you make, of course you want them to enjoy them. But I'm not out there saying, 'Do they like the way I look? Do they like that look on the red carpet?' You have to say, 'This is what I'm doing right now.'"

Cate also shared her thoughts on the praise actors get for not wearing make-up on camera. "I think it's because people constantly are taking pictures of ourselves to send them to people to see if they like me, 'do they like me?' It's pathetic, the whole thing about people worrying about what other people are going to think."

We're guessing she hasn't picked up a copy of Kim K's Selfish then...
