Jesse Eisenberg played Facebook creator Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network” as a brilliant, somewhat dickish college student with a very dry sense of humor, and he’s gained a reputation for being that way in real life. Now, after an interview promoting his new film “Now You See Me”, a female reporter says he “humiliated” her with his attitude.

Romina Puga wrote a blog post about the interview afterwards, and the first thing that pops out at the reader is “Jesse Eisenberg isn’t very nice.” After a couple of minutes of back-and-forth in which Eisenberg appears to be trying to remember how to flirt and failing miserably, this exchange happens:

J: You know the comedian Carrot Top?

R: Yes. He’s horrible.

J: Well… (He points down as in saying ‘don’t say that just yet’) You are like the Carrot Top of interviewers. Yeah because you know they rely on props instead of just their own… you know…

R: Ok. I’m going to cry now.

J: No. Don’t cry now. Cry after the interview is over, because otherwise it’ll look like I was responsible for it.

R: Well, you are.

J: Well, I don’t want to know that though.

R: Well, now you know.

Now, Eisenberg is being put on blast all around the web for his attitude during the interview. He has yet to comment on it or on Puga’s blog post, so the reason behind his behavior is up to us to decipher. Low blood sugar? Or maybe no one understands his sense of humor. Either way, he’s not doing much to help his reputation.

    You guys must be desperate for hits. The guy was having some fun with her. This is his style, you know that just trying to make more out of nothing. If she can’t learn to handle the Person being interviewed she should stay behind the camera.
    But then again, I think you are more upset then her…………….

    Jesse Eisenberg handled that interview exactly as I would have. He responded perfectly to an idiotic interview by an immature interviewer. He saw through her immediately and put her in her place. Jesse is smart. She is obvious, not. He didn’t allow her to disrespect Morgan Freeman, or himself. I would have done the same thing in a similar situation. Frankly, I howled as his off-the-cuff remark after she’d stupidly said she wanted to “wrap things up”; “You’re on my time”….nicely done Jesse. Cheers!!!! I respect you even more now!!!!

    I actually think her behaviour is worse than his. She’s a terrible interviewer and treated him in an offhand way. He’s probably just responding to that.

    I thought Mr. Eisenberg was very witty and the interview could have been cute if she not taken his initial teasing so personally. You can tell from the very beginning by her body language that she lacked energy, awareness and professionalism. He then has to defend himself against an interviewer who has somehow turned an interview about Mr. Eisenberg into a platform for debating the imaginary offense she felt in her little delusional head. I actually like Mr. Eisenberg a lot now. It’s very unfortunate that they’re pretty much slandering him to get readers so I wanted to post my support(and I’m super hot AND smart so I hope it makes him feel better).
