I disagree. I saw the clip of the video that many talked about and he was fine. He seems a bit socially awkward, not unlike his character was in Social Network, but I didn't pick up a douchey vibe. If anything the interviewer was kind of a jerk
This guy admits that he was very reclusive, that he never watched, and to this day does not own a TV set, and he seems to me to be a very shy person, highly intelligent, maybe someone with some kind of mental health issues.
So when he is stressed out and feels cornered, he lacks the social skills to figure out how to deal with it, and he gets ugly. I've known people like that. I think it's a form of mental illness. Or maybe a form of Asperger's.
There was a really shy kid in high school who rarely talked, and a couple of times when he was in a social setting he stressed out and said inappropriate or rude things, so people started shunning him. He was OK with shunning. He was "anti-social." I later learned he had some mental disorder.
Is his dick nasty? Is it big?
Did he grow up a wealthy Jew from NY's Upper West Side?
Middle class, R6. First Queens, then East Brunswick, NJ. Maybe when he made some money, he moved his parents to the UWS, but this is the first I've heard.
I remember there was some debacle with him and Heeb magazine back in 2007 (I think?) when he was nobody. Why publicists still use him to market his own movies is beyond me.
You sound very judgmental, r4. A form of mental illness? Really?
Some of us love him, R8.
Think r4 is right. He certainly is awkward and aspy-esque. He is exactly the same as his characters and plays himself. He is as articulate and intelligent as those nerdy characters though. He founded some word game website or something.
See him at 34 mins in
Only in Us shyness can be considered a mental illness. The only thing insane in this guy is his talent. I'm reading amazing reviews about his last two movies at TIFF 2013
I think in some interviews he took the role of mark zuckerberg a little too seriously and some parts of that douchy personality rubbed off on him.!Apart from that he seems like a sweet,shy and awkward guy but could also have some closet troubles too.
He received a Best Actor nod at 26. Respect should be paid. (what did you ever do op?)
How he did get a career being so damn rat-like ugly, and still looking like a 15-year-old boy??!
he plays those types r15
Shitty actor, no charisma. Hollywood execs are the lamest bunch of people.
ACH! Das Judens!
He will be around a long time. He is insanely talented and can write as well as act.
His film earlier this year about magic was a surprise summer hit when all of the tentpole pics were flopping.
I think he's amazing. I really appreciate his acting and most of his movies. Also I think he's a nice man and one or two bad interviews in ten years can't change my mind.
He's good looking. Check Now you see me
R21. He's not good looking. Rodent-y. Creep-y. Asperger-y. Repeat after me: Not good looking.
Who do you think is hot, R23?
R24. There's just no planet on which "hot" would describe Jesse Eisenberg. R23 was talking good looking. It's a big stride from that to "hot."
R23 R25 You didn't answer the question.
And BTW, Jesse Eisenberg is HOT, HOT, HOT, if you're me. Which, obviously, you are not. And so, we end up back at my question: who do [italic]you[/italic] think is "good looking"?
It helps me understand people who don't like what I like, to know what they do like. I am frequently amazed on DL when I see some of the men some consider hot. I am just trying to create a context for understanding you.
And being understood is nice, don't you think?
I met him once after his play and he was really nice.
I think both he and his gf, Mia Wasisowska, are very underrated in Hollywood. Both are two of the more talented young actors out there.
I really like actors that hold back, do only "print" interviews not tv, and maybe appear hostile, withdrawn, possibly crazy. Like Scorcese and DeNiro back when they were cool, circa '82. It's way more appealing than smug, grinning, way-too-self-regarding mini-talents.
A young and talented actress, Mia Wasikoska, is dating Jesse. Not too bad for a "ugly" boy, right?
Mia is a lucky girl. Both are lucky: talented, rich and good looking.
I'm a total Jew-boy slut, and I find him to be "behaviorally challenged" (aka ASSPIE). That said, I'd still bend him over something sturdy. Now that Zuckerberg boy could be up to his luscious lips in debt, and I'd still have the hots for him.
Jesse Eisenberg is the young actor I appreciate and respect most.
[quote]I think both he and his gf, Mia Wasisowska, are very underrated in Hollywood.
How is Mia underrated? She works all the time in projects that get lots of visibility.
Jesse's play got shitty reviews (writing in particular) in spite of Vanessa being in it. So, please, stop saying he is a good writer.
R32 and I are both subscribed to Who's Jew magazine.
I meet him, when he was promoting "Now You See" and he was actually friendly, but I heard he doesn't like obnoxious reporters. Also, very cute in person.
Is there really such a thing, R34? I want a subscription, too. What could be hotter than a fine young Jewish guy?
R34 is someone's Jewish mother, I bet.
Jesse IS a good writer. His humorous pieces are published in McSweeney and New Yorker. His play "Asuncion" got rave reviews. "The Revisionist" (that he wrote 5 years ago) was a box office success. For Vanessa Redgrave? Maybe. But, as the New York Times critic has written, Jesse gave her the chance writing a good and interesting character.
To my friends 34 and 37. My family is Christian but I define myself as an atheist now. The last thing I care is religion, particularly in actors.
I was just teasing R40. If there was an app called JewFinder, I'd be the first ho on there. (Jewish mothers would beat me to it, though, to make sure their sons were finding nice Jewish boys instead of ME.)
OK. I live in Europe. Maybe religion is less important here. I really don't care. I find weird to read messages about religion in Actors posts
You need to meet some American Jewish mothers. Jewish guys make the joke, at least in the South, "Fine for a lay, but no more than a day." They don't want to deal with their mothers either.
Let's get back to that nice Zucker -er- Eisenberg lad.
Well, coming back to Eisenberg, Mia isn't Jewish I think. I hope he isn't in trouble with his mother :-)
Anyway, all I have to say about Jesse Eisenberg: he got amazing reviews by critics lately. His late film "The Double" is 94% on Rotten Tomatoes, Night Moves 78%
After a box office success as Now You see me this is a wonderful year for him.
And ... I think is good looking and, above all, he's always better, year after year
R41 R39 R34 R32 R31 Have you seen Holy Rollers?
It's Hebraically, Hasidically, hysterical.
Someone should hold him down and display his micropeen to the paparazzi.
Yes, and I read the news story about it at the time that it happened. I loved the movie, and WTF is wrong with bringing E into the country? They were spreading peace and love. I thought Jesse was great in it.
Who says it's micro, and, either way, I don't care. I love him all the same (and hope he'd be a very receptive bottom).
R45: Did you watch Adventureland? He was excellent (and hot) in it.
weirdly he loves interesting but problematic characters. Anyway, I saw him few months ago in NY. He looks a lot better in person, A LOT BETTER
Thanks, R45. I just put it in my Netflix queue. And yes to a support group. I can't believe anyone would find Jesse anything other than perfectly adorable -- and "rodentlike" is one of the first things out of the mouths of anti-Semites, but don't get me started -- but then I look at some of the moosemeat in those "presenting" threads, and I kind of understand that some people don't like what I like.
You mean they don't like human proportions, I know.
Rodentlike? He has the best smile. And the most adorable mouth
R50: PIX? ;) I wouldn't expect you to intrude on his privacy unless he was naked. Then... well, I'd find and hurt you for not taking pix. I would, so don't let it happen. Big kisses!
Exactly, R52 R31. I am regularly stunned by some of the choices.
 Unfortunately he was dressed all the time
We can't even go there. Size queens live in their own private Twilight Zone. Jesse would be fine regardless of his size. (I could name myriad others who I would say the same thing about... it's only a coincidence that they're mostly Jewish and I grew up in Palm Beach.) Now... he was so funny (in his own dark comedy way) in 30 Minutes Or Less. His face when asked, "Will that be all for your Rape Kit?" was priceless.
Jesse's not a bad actor, he just has very little range. At least, unlike Michael Cera, he's pro-active in his choices, although I imagine those choices are pretty much like his own persona. Not a total washout, but he has very little interest in developing screen charisma.
Oh brother, fangurls out of control here. He might be talented, but he has a nasty cunt attitude because he is feeling himself. Deal with it!
When Vanessa Redgrave decided to star in his piece of his willowy wisp of a boring play.
People who think Jesse comes off as a weirdo in interviews obviously haven't seen this clip of Ed Harris yet. Now that's what I call weird and uncomfortable.
I think he basically plays a stereotype which basically nobody, including him, is either aware of or would want to admit to.
And THAT'S why he gets in movies.
R59 I could "deal with it" better if I got to be the one to feel him.
Told you Ed was hardcore, R61
Some people just don't want to play the ancillary games that go with a Hollywood career. Red carpet, phooey. And who would blame them? Being grilled by Ryan Seacrest and that ilk.
I would be a terrible celebrity. I don't crave attention. I freeze up when I have to speak to a crowd. There are times when it embarrasses me to talk with one person if others are listening. I can't imagine paps in my life.
I have a friend who is the opposite. He is so attention-starved, he will do totally assholish things to get people to look at him. His cellphone has given him license to perform in any public arena he finds himself in. He shrieks so loudly into his phone, you can't help but pay attention. I won't go into specifics, as I think he reads DL. He would LOVE paps following him around.
I would act more like Jesse.
I think he is still just a bit jealous of his little sister. After she hit it big with the Pepsi commercials, she was everywhere and he was a still a nobody.
He will always be in her shadow. LOL
R59: He can be a nasty little cunt in my bed ANY day. I'll take a bossy bottom over a lazy bottom any day.
Here's my further fanboy swooning. Oh what I wouldn't give to get my fingers tangled up in his luscious Jewfro.
Whatever r68. Id rather get my fingers tangled in Justin Timeberlake's faux Jewfro anyday. At least he pretends to be nice, and saves his nasty cunt ways for the bedroom.
They're all weird, drug addled morons surrounded by sycophants. Now if you'll excuse me, I need to go see my doctor about my 'end-dough-creen' system.
This is a safe space where Sarah Palin and mobs of gaybies do not exist.
Just a red-hot Jewboy, R73.
I hate it when threads like this get infested by crazed tumblr fangurls and publicists.!!can we please have one discussing about an actor without his "gf" being mentioned in every post.
R75 - I know two of us who don't want to read nothing about no girlfriend. We can dream, can't we?
They weren't supposed to cut off Ed Harris so soon, because he was having an emotional breakdown. This is why he doesn't get work that often.
Very tired of overpaid spoiled actors already.
[quote]Oh brother, fangurls out of control here. He might be talented, but he has a nasty cunt attitude because he is feeling himself. Deal with it!
Try to be a mature gay here.
Or a mature goy.
[quote]I could name myriad others who I would say the same thing about... it's only a coincidence that they're mostly Jewish and I grew up in Palm Beach.
How in hell did you develop that fetish growing up in Palm Beach? Is it a rebellion thing, like Beverly Hills boys who have a thing for Mexicans?
I'm not being mean, that's just life. Things have changed, but not that much. In Newport you could marry a Jew and still retain your club memberships, but not Palm Beach.
R80: I come from Old Money. Jewish lads went to St. Andrews, and we bonded. No one ever expected me to get married, and I never cared for the "games set". I loathe polo, golf, and brown liquors, so I wasn't cut out for it. (It's more of a shock that my partner is related to the Nixons. Such. Trash.)
We're treated much better with the social set here in Atlanta. (Yes, there is a Driving Club a la Designing Women.) Having relatives in Oakland Cemetery and owning two cemeteries with Confederate Dead plays well to the heritage types. (Money doesn't hurt either, but I don't give that away to these types.)
He's got a big dick face.
Somehow I don't think he's got the dick to match the face.
That he does, R82, and combine that with a successful movie career. He can have a massive ego.
R83: You shut the fuck up.
R85. And you're a fucking hall monitor. Last time I heard, this was a list for expressing freely one's thoughts and observations (until stupid Prime Time kicks in usually at a very Non Prime Time).
R86: It was a joke. See Della Reese in Harlem Nights. (Pair that with her, "You blind motherfucker!" and Redd Foxx replying, "You fat bitch!") No angel touching here, and we do hit people with garbage cans.
Does anyone know when night moves and the double will be released.?
His sister was the Pepsi girl in the 1990s. Always thought she had big vagina face.
