Brad Pitt Doesn't Google Himself

Is It Lame When Celebs Claim They Can't Use a Computer?

As part of Newsweek's annual roundtable discussion, celebs were asked if they Google themselves on a regular basis. Robert Downey Jr. proudly admitted that he reads up on himself, while Brad Pitt claimed the opposite, saying, "Never. First of all, I don't really know how to operate a computer." He's not the first star to have trouble with technology — Angelina once claimed she doesn't know how to turn on a computer, and Jennifer Aniston is supposedly computer illiterate. It's hard to believe so many celebs are behind the times, so tell us — do you think it's lame when stars say they can't use computers?

It's not even about whether they use technology to read celebrity gossip. Of Course they don't go online and read popsugar. But I think it's misguided for them to be such activists and role models and say something so irresponsible. It doesn't make Brad cool that he doesn't know how to operate a computer. It simply confirms the stereotype that all actors are freaking idiots. Furthermore, what kind of activist doesn't learn or want to learn how to use a computer. Can you imagine how much philanthropy happens online? Get with the freaking program Brad and Angelina... you're starting to talk like you're royalty. May I remind you, Angelina, that you were doing topless at 16/17 and that you Brad were in a series of lame movies to start (The Favor). Finally, by the looks of the comments.. does anyone agree that we're all a bit offended by this and that it comes off a bit "holier than thou"?

Actually Brad is 6 years older then me and in HS I had computer class.. but it was DOS all codes.. nothing like today.. and he has a blackberry that delivers his email.. If you think about it this way... he is traveling back and forth all over the world.. he is mostly working on set, or going in to the office in LA (where someone probably has just his email already up for him).. all of his humanitarian work, Plan B projects, and personal stuff is done by phone or emails sent to his blackberry. Add six kids to the mix.. and he doesn't exactly have all the time in the world to sit around and surf the net. Like say we would in our spare time. Or say gee wonder what the online gossip crowd thinks of me.. lets go look at Popsugar.. or Perez Hilton. Esp when he claims to not bother with tabloids.. why then spend very precious free time looking at online tabloids?

LAME!! And I think claiming you don't know how to work a computer in this day and age is a bit phoney - how can you not know unless you live under a rock?!

I definitely think so - my grandfather can use a computer, and he is in his 80s! today everyone is learning how, and its rare to find many people who have good jobs and are economically well-off that cannot operate a computer.

Brad Pitt is overrated anyway. I love Downey however.

I always find it very odd when people don't know how to even use a computer - probably because most of my job is spent on one ;)

I believe Brad.I know people that don't use a PC. My co-worker don't own a cell phone. My brother just got a cell phone and a PC for the first time last year. He always call me and ask question about the PC. His kids help him operate the cell. Every body don't jump in technology. People still believe cell phones and microwaves ovens cause cancer.

Considering all the fuss about a certain presidential candidate not being able to use a computer, I think it's exceedingly lame.

I'm 33 years old and I had computer science at school (if we had that back then in Argentina, I'm pretty sure Brad had it in the States). So if he can't operate a computer does that mean he didn't go to school? Please! That's like saying you can't operate a telephone!

I don't know if I believe most celebrities when they say that stuff... Though, my parents (both in their early fifties) don't know how to really use a computer. My dad's better than my mom though; she struggles with the basics even. They never really had any real opportunity to learn back in the old country (they are trying, though).

I believe if they cannot do stuff like Excel or Adobe whatever. But cut me the crap if they mean they dont know how to surf the net, stuff like that.Denise Richards is another one who checks herself out on the net, and prints them out too

It sounds pretty pathetic. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

It doesn't just seem lame, it seems like a lie. Just like when Angelina & Paris say they've only been with 2-3 men.

I work in a nursing home and many of our residents in their 60's and 70's regularly use the computer in the resident computer room.. I find it hilarious that people think a 45 yr old "doesn't know how" to use a computer because of their age. That is ridiculous since almost everything is associated with computers now a days. Pitt even said he keeps in contact with his siblings through email when they are too busy to phone each other..so what gives? Does he forget the stories he tells. He should learn to kept them straight if he expects people to believe him.
