Arnold Schwarzenegger’s wife Maria Shriver thinks society's obsession with smartphones causes ''epidemics of anxiety and loneliness!

The 63-year-old journalist - who is married to Schwarzenegger - has encouraged people to talk rather than spend all their times on their devices.

She said that people can sit down and find common subjects, and that she is a big believer that we're in desperate need as a country to find things that we can talk about, in order to form relationships.

She also added that everybody's obsessed with their phone, and that many people are technically connected, but we're not connected.''
