Jesse Eisenberg is out promoting his new movie Now You See Me, which includes the hellacious press junket. Romina Puga is a reporter for Fusion, which is a love child of Univision and ABC. Puga interviewed Eisenberg and then wrote a piece about how the actor believes he is better than everyone. Check out the awkward highlights from the interview and try to decide if Eisenberg is a jerk, flirting, or if the attempts by Puga to have fun with the actor were just too annoying for anything other than the hilarious quips he threw at her.
The intro music is ridiculously juvenile and plays in a squeaky Chipette style, just so you know.
The interview starts out fine, with gentle ribbing from Eisenberg when Puga calls Morgan Freeman just “Freeman”. I think the real animosity from Eisenberg started right after Puga told him that his thumbs were fat. Then Eisenberg asks about the writing on Puga’s hand and she becomes coy and weird. It seems to me that Puga is just a really poor interviewer and Eisenberg decided to mess with her after enduring probably hours of inane questions from others.
