Jesse Eisenberg joins the long list of movie stars who snap under the tedium of back-to-back junket interviews. For whatever reason (if it worked for Mila Kunis?), he decides to give Romina Puga a hard time; the interview is edited, so we don't know what other stuff she left out. But fair to say this gave me the biggest laugh I've had in a while.

'Now You See Me' star Jesse Eisenberg joins the long list of actors who snap under the tedium of back-to-back junket interviews. For whatever reason (it worked for Mila Kunis?), he decides to give his interlocutor Romina Puga a hard time; the conversation is edited, so we don't know what's left out. "You are the Carrot Top of interviewers," he tells her.

This gave me the biggest laugh I've had in a while. When I interviewed Eisenberg on video at Musso & Franks for "A Social Network," he was perfectly charming.
