Newsweek has just held their 13th annual Oscar Roundtable, in which six celebs get together to talk about their performances and personal lives.

The mag had some interesting questions for its guests this year, which included Brad Pitt, Robert Downey Jr., Anne Hathaway, Frank Langella, Sally Hawkins and Mickey Rourke.

When asked if it's hard for them to draw a line between their personal and professional lives, or if they ever "Google" themselves, Pitt replied, "Dear God. No. Never. First of all, I don't really know how to operate a computer." He then added, "Oh yeah, I have a BlackBerry."

Robert Downey Jr. answered, "Oh, I love all that sh*t, personally. Sorry. I just love it. Because it's a hoot. Some people overstate their support, like they know you. 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 thing they kind of nailed it. I do have that shortcoming. It's really fun."

As for Anne Hathaway, she at first denied googling herself, then after RDJ's admission, she said, "Ok, I have a confession. I lied before when you asked if I Googled myself. I do. I was embarrassed by it because I know how terrible it is."
