"I haven't had a TV since 1964," she said at the press day for "The Joneses."
The legendary actress continued, saying she has "never seen a reality show," not to mention all the episodes of "Brady Bunch," "The A-Team" and both "90210" series.
The comment floored everyone in the room, including co-star David Duchovny who immediately asked, "So you didn't see the moon landing?" That was impressively nimble.
Her response: "We rented a TV back in New York for that."
But Hutton, who plays the top boss in a stealth marketing firm in the movie which opens on Friday, admitted she's a closet TV addict.
"When I turn it on I cannot turn it off. It hypnotizes me, " Hutton said. "And there are so many channels. With the remote I'm afraid I would just sit there like an idiot."
"And I would have lost six or seven hours of my life and I hadn't learned a damn thing," she said.
