Alone with his cell phone

Bradley Cooper was at the French Open today in Paris for the Novak Djokovic match. He appeared to be on his own. Apparently between plays he’d obsessively check his phone. He must know people in LA and NY who get up awfully early then. Or the more understandable explanation, because we’ve all done it before, we all do it all the time...

When you’re alone somewhere, when you’re waiting, when you’re on line, your phone has become your best friend, hasn’t it? Do celebrities do it because they don’t want to look like have nothing to do? Or do they do it because they don’t want to be approached? I highly doubt those people all wearing the same hat behind him knew who he was. Why are my people incapable of going anywhere without picking their noses?

Some point to this habit, this reliance on the phone when alone, as an example of our social weakness. Why are we so insecure? Why can’t we not have company once in a while and not worry about what people might think because we’re alone? I’m not sure whether I agree with this. But are people who pull out a book when they’re on their own or waiting for someone/thing accused of insecurity too?
