Los Angeles, April 13 (IANS) Hollywood actor Aaron Eckhart, who has made a Twitter account at the behest of his agent, feels the socialnetworking site is used to find good dates.
“My agent made me join Twitter because there’s this insane notion that it all matters for business. They’ll tell me so-and-so has this many followers. I go, ‘yeah, but did it get him a job? Are they a better actor?’ And they’re like, no,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Eckhart as saying.
“Why did I give in? I’m an old man. What do I need Twitter for? Mostly it’s just to get chicks,” he added.
Quizzed on whether he was desperate enough to field dates on the social network, he said: “Yes I am. I’m very shy. I know you don’t believe it.”
However, the 45-year-old stays away from dating websites for fear of being recognised.
He said: “Then they tweet it and everything. Like, I’ve had some weird experiences, but let’s not go into that.”
