Reservoir Dogs tough guy Michael Madsen grew so tired of his cellphone he smashed it with a sledgehammer. The actor was inspired to get rid of his modern communication devices by pal Quentin Tarantino, who can only be reached by making a personal call to his Hollywood home. And so one day he displayed his hatred for technology by taking a hammer to his mobile. He tells Maxim magazine, "I thought, 'Why do I constantly have this thing in my pocket? I couldn't get over the idea that for so many years people got along without them. "One day I put it on the counter (at my home), took out a hammer, and smashed it."
