Jesse Eisenberg almost makes female interviewer cry
Jesse Eisenberg acted like quite the jerk when he played Mark Zuckerberg in “The Social Network,” and it seems maybe playing that character wasn’t too much of a stretch for the 29-year-old actor.
In a recent interview with Univision, Eisenberg gave a female interviewer a pretty hard time, which she claims nearly pushed her to tears.
The interviewer, Romina Puga, has since posted a video of her sit-down with Eisenberg along with the caption “Jesse Eisenberg isn’t very nice.”
And based on the footage, she has a point.
During the interview, Eisenberg points out that Puga has some questions written out on her hand and mocks her for it. Then, he calls her “the Carrot Top of interviewers,” saying she relies on props rather than talent to do her job.
Puga then tells Eisenberg she is going to cry and he replies: “No. Don’t cry now. Cry after the interview is over, because otherwise it’ll look like I was responsible for it.”
In her blog, Puga writes that she was “humiliated” by the actor and rushed through the end of her interview with him because she “just wanted to go cry.”
It’s unclear if Eisenberg was trying to be harsh or just sarcastic, but either way it seems the two didn’t get along very well.
Watch the video below to see the awkward moment for yourself.
Reps for Eisenberg did not immediately return FOX 411's request for comment. A rep for Carrot Top --whose real name is Scott Thompson-- said the actor is currently out of the country and could not be reached for comment.
