According to Penelope Cruz, tech is ‘making our brains explode.’
“I have my personal war with technology,” says Cruz, addressing reporters at the Venice film festival.
The Spanish superstar said she was worried about how her kids mental health and development were being affected by technology.
"I wish we could have lived in the 1990s for a little longer. For mental health issues that would have helped a lot, because I think things are going at a speed that we are unprepared for," said the actress.
Crus is in Venice promoting Wasp Network – a thriller about Cuban undercover agents infiltrating radical networks in Florida.
She went on to say that technology is on the way to dominating children’s lives, hogging their time and their imaginations.
"This might seem like an exaggeration to other people, but I am convinced that we were raised with a different relationship with technology," she said.
"Right now children and teenagers are in contact so much with electronics and it takes the time away from children to learn to play, to have conversations, to be at a table having dinner talking to their family, or to be bored -- which is something important we all should learn as children."
Cruz has an eight-year-old son and six-year-old daughter with Spanish star, Javier Bardem. She said that technology was "not only affecting children, but all of us.... It is something that is creating a lot of general anxiety and I wonder if this continues all of our brains are just going to explode."
"I hope that there will be a movement for people to live in a different way, that will value a different pace, which leads us to the other big issue, what happens to the environment," she added.
