Downey: Googling Myself 'A Hoot'
"Dear God. No. Never," Brad Pitt says of Googling himself. "First of all, I don't really know how to operate a computer."   (AP Photo)

Celebrities really are just like us: They Google themselves, too, reports Perez Hilton. At an Oscars celebrity panel this week, Robert Downey Jr. admitted it: “I love all that shit, personally. Because it’s a hoot.” Anne Hathaway then reversed course: “I lied before when you asked if I Googled myself. I do.” Not so Brad Pitt: “I don’t really know how to operate a computer.”

“Some people overstate their support, like they know you,” Downey said of online commenters. “Other people are busy doing something else and just want to go on this chat site and say some despicable character assassination, which I honestly think they kind of nailed it. I do have that shortcoming. It’s really fun.” (More Robert Downey Jr. stories.)
