Jesse Eisenberg played a jerk in The Social Network, but is the Academy Award nominated actor a jerk in real life? Judging by the way he conducted himself in a recent interview with Univision, all signs point to yes!
To promote his new movie, Now You See Me, in which he plays a magician, Eisenberg sat down with Romina Puga, a reporter for the Spanish-language television network. But more attention was focused on their awkward banter than the new flick.
After an excruciatingly long minute of Jesse making fun and talking down to Puga, she asks him if he will do a magic trick so they can wrap up the interview — Jesse then looks up at the female reporter and says, “Hey, you’re on my time.”
Romina then blogged about her experience in an entry titled “Jesse Eisenberg isn’t very nice,” where she says that he “just humiliated her.”
Watch the video and judge for yourself.
