Parker Posey: Not A Geek, Still Chic

While she may play neurotic high-powered women on film, actress Parker Posey is decidedly ungeeky. In fact, if the interview she recently did with Switched is any indication, she abhors gadgets all together. She doesn't give any clue as to where her hatred of all things electronic sprang from, but her repugnance translates to some funny anti-tech sentiments. Is it just me, or does she rebuke the iPhone faster than Bill Gates? Highlights include:

  • What gadgets do you always bring with you to the set?
    I don't.
  • What cell phone do you have right now and what to you love or hate about it?
    Nokia, plain, no flap. It's easy to replace when lost.
  • Where do you go pretty much every time you get online?
    A chair or a couch.
  • Name one thing you wish your iPod, cell phone, or laptop could do that it doesn't do now?
    Disappear.
  • What upcoming gadget can you not wait to get your hands on?
    The gadget that will make all the gadgets go away.
  • BlackBerry, Sidekick, or Treo?
    Sure -- I mean, what?
  • Are you getting an iPhone -- if so, why?
    No, it doesn't make sense.

i don't think she was being disrespectful...in the many other interviews i've read with her, she just seems to have a good sense of humor, and i would guess she was just being honest about not having a love of gadgets/technology, while being kinda silly/jokey. either way, she really is an outstanding actress.

I'm not too gadget savvy, I can use them enough to get by but she seem's so rude. I really liked her but after reading the way she would speak during an interview with a technology magazine/website I'm not very interested in her.

Agreed, MrsSchmitt. If she agreed to do the interview, she could've at least feigned being polite.
