Celebrity Snippets: Penelope Cruz, Harrison Ford, Paul Walker & More
The movie hunk says, "She gets the simplicity of this tribe (travelers)." But Cruz refuses to rough it, like McConaughey is often forced to: "If it's winter, I'd better make damn sure the heat is working."
* Technophobe Harrison Ford is urging Americans to abandon their Blackberrys and cell phones in favor of face-to-face conversations. The 63-year-old action man fears modern Americans are losing touch with culture and family because they insist on using e-mail to communicate with each other.
He says, "I'm convinced that if we were still writing in notebooks, we'd be far more connected to our culture, our friends, and our family than we are with instant e-mail access. People should be out of reach. People don't need you as much as they think they do. I get by on less communication than most people are comfortable with."
* Paul Walker has blasted Hollywood stars who complain about becoming paparazzi targets because it's so easy to escape their prying lenses. The hunky movie star is currently topping the box office with Eight Below, and he would rather live far away from Los Angeles than let his life be ruined by aggressive photographers.
He tells Complex magazine, "All these people who complain and bitch about it... move. Get the f**k out! You don't like the press, why the hell are you shopping on Rodeo Drive? Come on, it's easy to disappear if you want to."
* Hong Kong star Jackie Chan successfully bid $192,000 for a lucky car license plate at an auction last week. The actor bought plate number 123, because of the link to the birthdays of his wife and son. Chan's wife Lin Feng-Jao was born on January 23, while his son Jaycee Chan was born on December 3. Chan enthuses, "When I saw the license plate... I really liked it, so I wanted to win it at the auction."
