Kate Winslet may have starred in a film about Apple co-founder Steve Jobs, but in real life she’s pretty hands-off when it comes to technology.

The British actress talked to Female First about her children’s use of gadgets in the house, saying, “I enjoy being terrible (enforcing restrictions) because it means I never have to get a computer. I don’t have one. We have no social media in our home.”

Winslet’s older children are 15 and 13 from previous marriages, and she has a 23-month-old toddler with husband Ned Rocknroll.

She seems to run a tight ship but has lifted the ban a little bit, revealing, “My daughter has only just been given an iPhone, but there are big restrictions on that, she has to hand it in at night and it’s switched off.”

The actress explains her reasoning, telling the magazine, “Children have to have a childhood and I do worry that exposure to social media and all these devices could get in the way of them just knowing how to climb a tree.”

Do you agree with Winslet’s non-use of technology?
