It’s not often in this day and age where we come across people – especially in the urban “jungle” – that haven’t even touched today’s current high-tech gadgets. It’s especially even rarer when it’s a very well-known multi-talented actor/dancer with a legendary body of work for a variety of creative roles on stage and screen: Christopher Walken.
According to a recent interview via Zoom about his new film Wild Mountain Thyme on The Late Show, Christopher Walken told host Stephen Colbert: “Somebody had to come and set this up because I don’t have a cellphone or a computer.”
Colbert also asked if Walken had a moral reason for avoiding technology, the 77-year-old actor/dancer replied: “No, no. I just got to it too late. I think I’m right at a certain age where it just passed me by. And I never got involved in it because it would be strange to have any 10-year-old be much better at it than I am.”
