Stars Shunning Technology

If you can't stand the modern marvels of technology, you're not alone. Many of Hollywood's A-listers are Luddites too. We tried to imagine a day where we didn't send any emails...yeah, that was about a five second fantasy!

These tech-free celebs avoid email, social networking, computers, and even cell phones. People like Angelina Jolie and Jessica Alba say they're not very good with computers and rely on their partners to help them navigate when they do get online. Vince Vaughn doesn't even own a cell phone—he borrows a friend's if he has to make a call. Emma Thompson says she prefers a fountain pen.

An even greater number of celebs avoid the social networking sites like Facebook and Myspace—hough they of course have "official" pages, presumably set up by their people (that's right, say it with us. "Brad and Angie are not my real friends.") It's not generational either—famous people both young and old avoid technology. Orlando Bloom and Casey Affleck both say they prefer not to use phones and email, Simon Cowell doesn't know how to work a computer. Even President Bush calls the world's most popular search engine "the Google."

In our world of advancing technology, do you feel a bit like the celebs and just want to avoid it all? Or are you a gung-ho tech user? [Forbes]
