Hollywood actor Keanu Reeves still prefers the conventional means of communication over the medium today's progressed science offers, as he believes new inventions actually take away time and make people less communicative.

The Matrix star is aware why the modern technology have become popular, but thinks things like the Internet and email allow people to opt for rather relaxed forms of communication, instead of them making special efforts to remain in touch with their loved ones.

"As far as I can tell, devices meant to save you time and help you communicate actually take away time and give you an excuse not to communicate," Contactmusic quoted the actor, as saying.

"People like email because they don't have to answer it. You want to talk to people, but you get less time to do it. I prefer letters. I like to write them," he added.
