While Jennifer Aniston admits to being technically challenged, she's still wise to when someone's secretly snapping her photo.

"My favorite move is when people pretend that they're on the phone," Aniston, 39, says in next Sunday's The New York Times Magazine, "and they kind of dial and take the picture at the same time. You hope they're doing it for themselves – that they're not thinking, 'I'm going to dine out on you.' "

Yet the actress also admits to being in awe of the tech-savvy. "I'm really computer illiterate," she says. "When I see people on their BlackBerrys, working them like some girls work a hairdryer, I'm just stunned. People have sent me clips from or YouTube, but I never seek it out."

So don’t expect the Friends star to be friend-ing you on Facebook anytime soon. Asked if she uses the online social network, Aniston replies, "It's not for me. I'd be opening myself up too much. I don't want to sound like a complete innocent – I've looked at things, of course. But it's such spewing. If I look at it, I'll be affected. It's like dancing with the devil."

What does the star like about the Digital Age: computer Scrabble and Wii.
