List RulesVote up the most hilarious moments of technological celebrity ignorance.

Alas, famous people with no internet savvy are crawling all over Beverly Hills while their poor assistants have had to learn how to use smoke signals to get a hold of them. In fact, there are a shocking number of celebrities who don't understand the Internet – like, at all.

Half of the people on this list are befuddled by a simple Google search. Some stories of celebrities and the Internet can be endearing, but others are infuriatingly ignorant. Seriously, there's no shortage of seemingly intelligent famous people who believe the Internet is just some short-lived fad.

Here is an embarrassingly long list of celebrities who don't know how the internet works.

    In 2009, Eminem and Complex's Noah Callahan-Bever stopped mid-interview to discuss the best way to get access to adult entertainment. As 109% of Americans know, it's available for free all over the Internet, however, Eminem somehow wasn't aware. Apparently, he was still purchasing erotica on DVD.

    "Imagine a YouTube of pornography," says Callahan-Bever.

    "Really?!" Eminem responds. "I know what I'm doing for the rest of the day when this sh*t is over."
