So Jesse Eisenberg Is A Dick In Real Life, Right?

GossipPop: Jesse Eisenberg gave a reporter a very hard time during a recent press interview for his new movie, Now You See Me. The actor continuously berated host Romina Puga while appearing on her Univision show, “Say My Name With Romina.” Eisenberg mocked Puga for referring to Morgan Freeman simply as “Freeman,” saying, “Freeman? What are you on a baseball team with him?” “Don’t call Morgan Freeman ‘Freeman’ like you’re on a little league softball team with him,” he chided. The Social Network star also called Puga “the Carrot Top of interviewers.” When Puga said she may cry at the insult, Eisenberg responded, “Don’t cry now, cry after the interview is over.” Afterwards, Puga blogged about the extremely awkward sit down, writing, “Jesse Eisenberg is the quick-witted bully you think he is. He’s smart, sharp, and mean.” She called the interview “tortuous.”


So this video is making it’s rounds on the internet today and most of the websites are dubbing Jesse Eisenberg a dick for this awful interview for his upcoming movie (which not only looks terrible but did not get good reviews). But then after reading some of the comments I noticed there’s a good share of people who are blaming the hot interviewer for the awkwardness. Personally, there’s no doubt in my mind that Eisenberg (yes that’s right, I just called you Eisenberg) nailed the role of Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network because he was just playing himself–a socially awkward asshole–but I also noticed this chick was taking subtle jabs at him too. So my question to you the public is…


One thought on “So Jesse Eisenberg Is A Dick In Real Life, Right?

  • I watched the interview with an unbiased stance and actually found his humour funny. It’s incredibly dry and sarcastic, so I can understand how it might be taken as him just being an ass. Honestly, for someone who worked so hard to get where he is now, I think he might have just been really put-off by a pretty girl who probably smiled her way into a job. Once he saw the questions on her hand, that probably was the cherry on top of it all.
