Comedian Steve Carell told Princeton grads that young people were worse off because they missed out on face-to-face romantic rejection because of the growth of technology.

The "Office" star gave a keynote address Monday to thousands of honors students at the prestigious college as part of a pre-commencement ceremony, The Star-Ledger newspaper reported.

He said young people could now be dumped via email, Facebook and text message, missing out on a key part of their growth as a person.

Face-to-face rejection provided "the humiliation and self-loathing a young man needs for his growth," he said.

He added, "My point is, I suffered and you should have to suffer, too. You are young. And because of that, you are wrong."
