Jesse Eisenberg is the Biggest Jerk Who Ever Jerked

So yeah, this video of Jesse Eisenberg being interviewed is terribly, terribly awkward. It's not awkward in that he's awkward so it sort of rubs off on you, either: it's awkward in that he's a mean, condescending tool, and the poor girl interviewing him has to put up with it. It's really just awful.
Seriously, after a few minutes of him making fun of her and talking down to her, she asks him to do a magic trick (the interview is for Jesse's new movie, "Now You See Me," which is about magic, if you didn't catch on to that) so they can wrap things up, and he looks at her incredulously and actually says "Hey, you're on my time." Who even says that?
And if you think this is one of those things that are awkward and weird on purpose, it's not. We know because the unfortunate soul who did the interview, Romina, blogged about it. She titled the entry "Jesse Eisenberg isn't very nice," she said that he "just humiliated her," and here's what happened after the video:
"When the five minute 'interview' (more like self-esteem butchering) were [sic] finally over I went behind a curtain to wait for the memory cards from the interview. I peaked around the curtain to ask Jesse about his neighborhood in New York (he lives a few blocks from where I used to live) and he immediately says, 'You’re still here?'"
Can someone tell Jesse that he's not famous or talented or cool enough to pull this off. He's no Freeman, you know.
