Winona Ryder Is Scared Of The Internet, Hates Her iPhone (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

"I don't use the Internet," Winona Ryder told Elle magazine in December.

On Monday's Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, the Heathers star explained that she has used the Internet in the past. But now, her own fears keep her off the net.

"[T]he Googling was very terrifying to me," Ryder said, "because I have this fear that I'm going to be trying to find out what movie is playing at what theater, and then I'm suddenly going to be a member Al Qaeda. [...] We're a button away from joining Al Qaeda. [...] You have to be careful."

Ryder share similar sentiments with musician John Mellencamp, who said in August, "I think the Internet is the most dangerous thing invented since the atomic bomb."

Ryder, however, doesn't eschew all forms technology. "I just got an iPhone," she told a surprised Fallon. However, she admitted that she doesn't like the touch screen, and she loathes auto-correct because "it makes up words [...] that you're not trying to spell."

Check out the full clip (below) and share your thoughts in the comments. Is Ryder being paranoid about the dangers of the Internet? Or is she on to something, perhaps?
