Jesse Eisenberg is the Biggest Jerk Who Ever Jerked

6/2/2013 8:00 AM PDT, by


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.

I wish the video was available in Canada. I would have loved to have seen it!

I have to disagree with this girl Romina. I watched the "interview," and I read her blog entry. She carries herself off like Jesse Eisenberg is supposed to know who she is and play along with all of her requests. He's on a press junket-all he's responsible for is answering questions about the movie not being her new bff. I love that he didn't treat her like she's anything special, LOVE IT. How the hell does this girl get paid to interview people? She's obviously not used to people with crass senses if humor. Cripes, I could have conducted a better interview.

I thought Jesse was great and good natured. He ribbed her a little (very, very little), but she thinks SHE is the star and too cool for him. I think he came off very intelligent and funny. Romina you need to get a new job where arrogance is the norm...like Starbucks.

I think that he has a dry sense of humor. He was teasing her, but she became really annoying during it. He probably could have been more polite- but I feel like it was more of her not understanding his jokes- and she slightly antagonized him as well. She probably just flushed what 'career' she had by blogging about it.

She's a hot girl used to getting her ass kissed and got pouty when he didn't kiss it. For a blogger she could learn proper grammar. Jesse didn't appreciate an award winning actor referred to as Freeman. All she wanted was Jesse to say her name for her dumb show. She was disrespectful to him and he put her in her place. She was unprofessional and deserved it.

I didn't think he came across as a jerk, at all. She was the one that was kind of rude, in my opinion. This chick needs to get over herself.

She made herself a part of the interview as opposed to simply interviewing the subject.

What's with asking him to look into the camera and say her name?
Was it so that she could edit it on to her demo reel of FB page? Eisenberg quickly realized that her reason for being in the chair was self serving.

A true professional reporter doesn't blog about her talent being not very nice.

She edited this video so of course she is going to cut it to put him in a bad light. I can imagine the obnoxious remarks she made she cut out.

I actually met Jesse at a restaurant in South Florida during the winter holidays. I felt awful interrupting his lunch with his family, but I politely and quietly did. He was nothing short of kind, gracious, humble and accommodating.

Who does this girl think she is? You don't just call Morgan Freeman "Freeman". He deserves more respect than that. Jesse Eisenberg wasn't being a jerk. She's dishing stuff out on him and he gave it right back.

He was being polite as he can but obviously this girl thinks she's on a another cloud. Se should be fired for having no sense on how to do interviews.

The whole asking him to do the magic trick and then not playing along, is like she thinking he was trying to get into her pants and she denying him. Pretty pathetic.

Sorry but she gave as good as she got. There's no victim here. He called her on her disrespect of Morgan Freeman. She should have apologized and moved on. Instead she started acting like the victim. Go Jesse. I love me some intelligent quibble.

Jesse Eisenberg is an Oscar nominated actor. People know who he is and is much more famous and talented then a website that has the word fish in the title. What is ridiculous is this website self important shtick thinking your more important then you real are.

This is obviously a case of a self-deluded silver-spooner with a parent-funded production. Eisenberg took issue rightfully with her calling a legendary actor by his last name. It did sound weird, like she was considering herself "part of the biz" and didn't need to be respectful. Plus, she started off his interview asking about another actor. She's self-deluded and passive aggressive, and Eisenberg wasn't having it. Go cry to Daddy, you spoiled bimbette.
