List Rules Vote 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."

Not only does Christopher Walken not have a computer, he doesn't even have a cell phone. In a 2012 interview with Newsweek, he said that having a computer is "something [he] missed." Apparently, his wife explained to him that you can even look yourself up on the Internet, but he's not interested because that would be masochistic.

"What do you punch little buttons and things?" he asked Roseanne Barr while interviewing her. This was a follow-up to her shock that he had "never gone searching" online.

So, a news icon, as of 2006, wasn't even sure how to physically perform an Internet search. Meanwhile, kids born after the new millennium were already learning how to code from Dora the Explorer.

DMX has no idea how to use a computer to search for anything online. "I can do it on the phone!" he boasts while speaking with Power 105.1. But then he adamantly points out how chaotic the toolbar is on a desktop's browser, completely convinced that he's right about the impossibility of using it to search for anything.
