I've read about two interviews where he's been an obnoxious douche as well as other things about him having a massively inflated ego.
Jesse Eisenberg - When did he become such a nasty dick, and what's given him such a massive ego?
|by Anonymous||reply 94||05/16/2014|
Massive ego paired with a tiny talent. That's Jesse, and always has been. Probably always will be.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

I really like actors that hold back, do only "print" interviews not tv, and maybe appear hostile, withdrawn, possibly crazy.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.

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 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.

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

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.

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 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.)
