Sh*t Celebrities Say: "I Don't Own a TV"


"You don't own a TV? Then what's all your furniture pointed at?" - Joey, Friends

People who smugly humble-brag about not owning TVs at cocktail parties, you are not alone. Below, a list of your celebrity peers who have likely never seen an episode of Hoarders or a "Justice For All" Law & Order marathon over Fourth of July weekend. We don't know how you do it.

Rachel McAdams: "I listen to the news on the radio. I don't have a television and I am really bad at e-mail. [It was] only [recently] that I heard about Twitter for the first time, and it's all I've heard about since. I'm really ignorant." [CelebrityVIPLounge]

Madonna, on whether she watches talent competition tv shows: "I don't watch television. Everyone's a bit contest obsessed. I don't actually like the idea of being a judge. It's so, I don't know, subjective -- what's good and what isn't. I think perhaps we're too obsessed with it."

Angelina Jolie: "I don't watch TV and I wasn't reading anything. So I started writing." [Via VanityFair]
