Technology makes James Marsden feel old

Los Angeles, Oct 20 (IANS) Actor James Marsden, who is busy working on TV show “Westworld”, says he feels old due to technological advances.

“I can see why people would want to go back in time, for sure. I’ve never felt older in my life. There’s always the generational gap — I have a 15-year-old son, and I say to him exactly what my parents said to me about the music I listened to, that it’s not music — but that gap now, is growing so rapidly and I feel so far behind, so out of touch,” Marsden said in a statement.

Known for the “X-Men” films series, besides movies “27 Dresses”, “The Notebook”, “Enchanted” and “Walk of Shame”, Marsden stars in the “Westworld” as one of the artificial characters in the futuristic theme park. The show, which is aired in India on Star World Premiere HD, is directed by Jonathan Nolan.

Marsden thinks humans are changing as a species because of technology.

“I think a hundred per cent we are. It’s changing our behaviour, it’s changing how we react to one another. If you look at the amount of time you spend doing this — typing on a phone — compared to the time you spend doing other things,” he said.

The 43-year-old feels nowadays “technology is insane”.
