Angelina Jolie: Technology Confuses Me

God bless Maddox. Because sometime soon, that poor kid is going to have to explain to his mom how to use Gmail, and we all know how much fun that is.

Angelina Jolie might be one of the most searched for celebrities on Google, but the actress admits that she’s a little confused when it comes to the Internet.

“Brad and I were on Amazon.com for the first time a week ago,” Jolie says, talking about getting her Christmas shopping done early. “But we got lost.”

And eventually, the whole Internet thing got too confusing. “After an hour, we just shut it off,” she said. “My brain is too scattered and the wires go in different directions. I’ll stick to catalogs,” Angelina added.

Well, this is great news for me, now I feel a little more free to take jabs at Angelina Jolie. Because she probably has no idea how to type in the URL to get here.

It’s so weird to imagine Angelina as one of those moms who has no idea how to use technology and spends half an hour trying to figure out what happened after a dropped call. She used to be such a wild child, describing herself as “experimental, bold and a bit nutty.”

She also adds that she was “absolutely self-destructive” early on in her career.

"I think a lot of young people in this business lose their way,” Angelina said, referring to Hollywood. “You don't know what is of value. You don't know where you are. And you know something's wrong, because it isn't life as it actually is," Jolie explains. "It's like living in some warped reality."

Okay, I don’t know if she’s talking about Hollywood or the Internet right now.

The actress says that at one point, a switch flipped in her brain and she began to change her perspective on life. She decided to settle down “once I started to learn about the world and I became grateful for everything that I certainly have. Since going through my first war zone, never have I woken up and not been simply grateful."

The actress adds that adopting her first son solidified her newfound attitude.

“I knew once I committed to Maddox, I would never be self-destructive again," Jolie says. "Now I have five more [kids], so I have to behave."
