Here at Teen.com, we pride ourselves on technology. Hello, we’re a freaking website for crying out loud! Our favorite stars, like Shailene Woodley and Jennifer Lawrence, however, don’t seem to echo our sentiments…
From their distaste for social media to their inabilities to navigate the Internet in general, here are 12 celebrities who are so anti-technology, they might as well be cavemen:
"I'm not a big technology person. I don't even have a smartphone. I don't even have a cellphone! And if I were to have one, it would be a flip-phone. There's a bigger lack of privacy than there's ever been, but there's also a bigger lack of camaraderie and community than there's ever been... I'm talking to people more than I've ever talked to in my life because I no longer have that crutch. The more you get away from all the technological buzz, the more freedom you have."

"Everybody was talking yesterday about Twitter and Instagram and Tumblr. It was really confusing me and overwhelming me. I literally started losing my breath. People were showing me these hilarious things and I was like, 'I want to have this.' 'What's Pinterest?' I don't have it. I know by the time I get it, it'll be something else. I bought a CD case less than a year ago."

"I don't have Twitter and I don't have Facebook, and I think that makes things a lot easier. If you go on Twitter and tell everybody what you're doing moment to moment and then claim you want a private life, then no one is going to take that request seriously."

"I think the internet is ruining everyone, and it just makes everybody way too accessible — it just takes away the glamour and mystery from our business."
"Twitter f**** me over every day of my life. Because people go, 'I'm sitting next to Kristen Stewart right now' and then they show up. I see people on their phones and I just want to take these cookies and throw them. It's like 'Get off your f****** phone and get a life!' I get so mad. It's like you're trampling on someone's life without any regard. And it's rampant. Everyone can do it now. Buy a camera and you're paparazzi; get a Twitter account and you're an informant. It's so annoying."
"I think there's a danger of being overexposed with that stuff. The mystery of who you are is what keeps people interested in wanting to see you on the screen."
"Brad and I were on Amazon.com for the first time a week ago. But we got lost. After an hour, we just shut it off. My brain is too scattered and the wires go in different directions. I'll stick to catalogs."

"[I'm not on Twitter because] I don't want anyone to know where I am."
"I'm really computer illiterate. When I see people on their BlackBerrys, working them like some girls work a hairdryer, I'm just stunned."
(via The New York Times Magazine)
"I'd rather have a rectal examination on live TV by a fellow with cold hands than have a Facebook page."
"Most people are so f****** boring that they should shut up, and you should have to get a license. And I'm volunteering to be in charge of the licenses... Go write it in a journal and mail it to your grandma."
"I don't use the Internet, but apparently you can find out everything on it. I have my email on my BlackBerry, and that's about it. I've never read a blog, ever."
