Clint Eastwood has never sent a text message.
The American actor continues to work, despite having reached the grand age of 82.
The star is on top form professionally, but admits he is a little behind when it comes to modern technology.
"I use my cell phone only in emergencies," he confessed to German magazine TV Movie.
"And I have never sent a text message in my life."
Clint stars alongside Amy Adams in drama Trouble with the Curve, playing a grumpy elderly man.
The star is very conscious of his health and practises a vegan lifestyle, which could be the reason he is ageing so well.
"Every old man is grumpy!" he laughed.
"Up until now I have been enjoying my age... I hit the gym and read the articles from American Journal of Medicine."
The star continues to produce a steady stream of movies, including hits Million Dollar Baby and Gran Torino.
Despite temporarily considering retirement, it doesn't seem like Clint will be giving up acting any time soon.
"Do I plan to quit my job? In the '70s I thought about it... But then my career took a different direction and everything turned out well," he explained.
