When celebrities take to Instagram, you get mixed results. Mostly, it's all about a totally enviable lifestyle: pics of gifted high-end wares and vacations to far-flung locations.

The indies-flocking actress has been in lots of acclaimed films, but she's not exactly living the A-lister's life for the sake of it. Instead, she's using her Instagram account for visually stimulating art photography: wistful pictures of flowers and hair, photogenic friends and gorgeous nature scenes.
