People Who Don't Use Cell Phones

For either social or health reasons, the following famous people don't use cell phones. Some of these people I've spoken to and others have spoken out in books or articles. Feel free to contact me if you have other additions.

Stephen King

In 2006, King published an apocalyptic novelCell. The book features a sudden force in which every cell phone user turns into a mindless killer. King noted in the book's introduction that he does not use cell phones.

Christopher Nolan

"It's not that I'm a Luddite and don't like technology; I've just never been interested. When I moved to L.A. in 1997, nobody really had cell phones, and I just never went down that path," Nolan told Backstage"A lot of the things people amuse themselves with really are just toys for grownups, and it eats your time and pulls your concentration."

Werner Herzog

"I enjoy life and things are very basic. I don’t have social networks in the Internet for example. I don’t even have a cell phone. I just don’t want to be available all the time. I love to connect with people but in a more fundamental way. I never go to parties, but I invite friends and I cook for them," Herzog told The Talks
