Mia Wasikowska & Jesse Eisenberg make out in Toronto: cute couple?

Mia Wasikowska

This bit of news isn’t wholly out of the ordinary, but it’s still unexpected. It seems that Mia Wasikowska and Jesse Eisenberg are a new couple! The two actors, who recently worked together in The Double, were photographed exclusively by People while locking lips (you can see the pictures here). I have to admit that while both of them are fairly incredible and convincing young actors, those photos do absolutely nothing for me. I mean, Mia was coupled up with Michael Fassbender in Jane Eyre! And Jesse, well, he (sort of) got it on with Amber Heard at the beginning of Zombieland. Wait, I guess I am confusing art with life. I guess these two would make a decent couple IRL, right?

Jesse Eisenberg

Now you see them … kissing.

Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska were photographed in Toronto on Tuesday, their public display of affection going beyond the hand-holding previously seen.

With Eisenberg, 29, in a blue T-shirt and sneakers and Wasikowska covered up in a black long-sleeved top and wide-legged pants, the pair was also snapped strolling the city streets looking very much like a couple in love.

The Oscar-nominated star of The Social Network and most recently Now You See Me costarred with Wasikowska, 23, in The Double, a comedy about a man who is driven insane by the appearance of his doppelgänger.

Eisenberg had been linked to actress Anna Strout.

I actually don’t know too much about Jesse’s true personality other than him acting slightly d-ckish to a journalist while he promoted his role in Now You See Me. As for Mia, she seems very professional and keeps to herself for the most part, yet it seems very out of character for her to debut a new relationship in publicist-friendly People. Let us pretend that this “exclusive” is merely a coincidence. I want to keep on believing in Jesse & Mia.

    I wonder what happened with Jesse and Anna Strout. They were together for like 12 years or something.

  2. mkyarwood says:

    They work. Creeptastic rumor concerning her and Fassbender: he particularly liked her young appearance.

  3. break says:

    She seems lovely. He seems like an a-hole.

  4. Kaye says:

    I like her a lot. She has the ability to “disappear” into a role.

  5. stellalovejoydiver says:

    I love Mia, but I am biased when it comes to Jesse, he seems like a really weird guy with an inferioty complex, you should watch his interviews with Kstew for Adventureland, it´s like an awkward-off.
    Anyway they are a cute couple and seem really happy together, even though both of them are/were insanely private, so it´s weird seeing them do people exclusives a la Henry Cavill. Ugh, I hope they are not using the relationship to promote their new movie.

    • Tessa says:

      Hmmm, while I think they are probably genuinely dating, it is very possible that both of them wanted to raise their profiles a little, and take it public. Or they just decided to let the cat out of the bag so they could be together without cheating speculation and weird stuff. They seem pretty normal. Mia especially.

      • stellalovejoydiver says:

        I know, but I always admired Mia for (seemingly) being all about the acting itself and not so much about fame.
        Henry Cavill also seems pretty/boringly normal and look what his doing now.

      • Tessa says:

        Henry dumped his girl, took up with Kaley in like a week, and is already doing the “Look how in love we are!” grocery stroll. Nothing about what Jessie and Mia are doing is screaming that kind of desperation for me. They’re in Toronto, paparazzi found them, and instead of being like Rob and Kristen and diving in a dumpster and being assholes, they smiled and went on with their day. It’s different.

      • RPG says:

        The difference is that MW has far more stroke in the industry right now than Henry and has done fine for herself without the H’wood hype machine, so I can’t see this right off the bat as some kind of desperate grab for publicity like Cavillgate clearly was.

        They’re both artists as well as actors (she is a photographer and just directed a short film while JE has penned New Yorker pieces and an off-Broadway play that starred Vanessa Redgrave), plus there’s their aforementioned similar family roots, so they seem an ideal fit, not to mention they willingly went out in public looking like they’d spent the previous night in the street. There’s also the bonus of MW shooting a movie right now w/Rob Pattinson, so there’s probably more paps crawling around than usual. Long story short, I’m willing to give both of them the benefit of the doubt right now.

  6. Jade says:

    I’ve seen her in person – very petite, shy, humble & quiet! Hope he’s good to her…

  7. ClaireB says:

    I wouldn’t say cute..but not unattractive either..

  8. Spooks says:

    I saw the interview where he was an supposedly an “a**hole”, and it wasn’t his fault at all. The journalist was unprepared and she acted like a brat.
    He’s quite endearing and cute. I like them together.

  9. Maritza says:

    She is a wonderful actress. I wish she would let her bangs grow out, they are so unflattering on her. Jesse always look so awkward, I guess they do make a cute couple.

  10. Esmom says:

    They look like a match made in hipster heaven.

  11. marie says:

    meh, I like them both separately so.. good for them I guess.

  12. bns says:

    That Anna Wintour-like haircut is not a good look on her.

  13. magpie says:

    Really like this coupling. They both seem a lot smarter than most people in the industry.

  14. anneesezz says:

    I get major douche vibes from him…Who is she?

  15. Annie says:

    I adore her. She’s so wonderful and sweet. I just hope Jesse is not the kind of condescending a-hole in relationships that I suspect he is. I imagine him talking down to women and being all uncooperative and stubborn. This all based on watching his interviews, of course, but I feel like his portrayal of Zuckerberg might not be too far from who he is in real life. Like that break up scene in the movie, the way he corrects the girl “It’s FINAL clubs. Not finals clubs.” I totally see him doing that IRL.

  16. Mandy says:

    I like her but cannot STAND Jesse. Ever since I saw that horrible interview he just rubs me the wrong way.

  17. Tig says:

    I really like her as an actress- him, not so much. To me, he pretty much plays every role the same way. He’s alot like Micheal Cera- you see him rather than the character.

    They do seem like a good fit, so hope they are having fun!

  18. Another Ann says:

    I like Mia, but good Lord, girl, take a shower and WASH YOUR HAIR.

  19. Kiddo says:

    She looks like the woman on Raising Hope in that jump photo.

  20. gogo says:

    They both have polish roots. As well Mia as Jesse parents were born in Poland maybe this made them closer.

    • Ennie says:

      Somewhere I read that their relatives even came from the same town or region in Poland. That’s cute.

      • Norman Bates' Mother says:

        Yes, Mia lived in Szczecin (big Polish city, located in the vinicity of the Baltic Sea) for some time when she was a child and her mother was born in this area and Jesse’s family comes from there as well, but the local media are not sure if his parents were born in Poland and moved to the USA or if this happened in the previous generations. They both talk about their Polish roots in interviews and Jesse was photographed in Szczecin several times and he talked about his unfortunate first road trip around Poland in some Amercian late night show a few years ago.

  21. scarlett says:

    She’s lovely, a really natural actress. I’ve been following her since she was in “The Kids are Alright”. She is very talented. He on the other hand — I hope people don’t find this offensive — but he reminds me of someone with extremely, high functioning Aspergers…he just seems somewhere on the spectrum. He’s talented and obvious smart but he is always seems so socially awkward and quirkly like he’s missing a social filter. His interviews are always a bit strange. Again, not to be offensive..maybe that is just his “public personality”.

    • Norman Bates' Mother says:

      He has an obsessive-compulsive disorder, not a – “I like to wash my hands, I am so OCD” one, but the actual disorder. It’s different than Aspergers, but some of his symptoms are connected with the social awkwardeness. He said in an interview that he doesn’t feel comfortable around strangers, he can’t stop moving his hands when he’s nervous and one of his symptoms is that when he does interviews or talks to people he has to finish his thought no matter what and considering that most of the interviewers have time limits and like to cut in in the middle of their guest’s sentences, it has to be a problem for him. This interviewer who accused him of being rude to her was an epitome of unprofessionalism. She probably triggered his OCD big time.

      • Sloane Wyatt says:

        Whatever Jessie has (maybe he’s just wicked smart), I think he’s incredibly witty and interesting. I laughed at that interviewer because it was so obvious she was pulling the “I’m so cute that I’m allowed to write my questions on my hand!” and then got miffed when she was hilariously busted.

      • scarlett says:

        Thanks…good to know. It does explain some of this behavioral traits…I don’t want to use the word “quirks”. He does seem very smart and many with Aspergers have this high aptitude in regards to intelligence…so I just wondered.

  22. DeltaJuliet says:

    I don’t know if I would say “cute”. Neither one of them are especially attractive.

  23. Ai says:

    There’s so much more to ppl than their looks! Irks me so much to keep reading these shallow comments. Both of them are talented, I find Mia to be a great actress that keeps on improving and has great potential. I’ve only seen two of Jessie’s movie and he was good as well. Since they both are quite private, we don’t know their full personalities. I also don’t think they are the type to do a PR relationship. It’s not the first relationship to start after working together in Hollywood.

  24. Olivia says:

    What a cute hipster couple! Thry both looked like they just rolled out of bed!

  25. Mo says:

    I have seen his interviews and I don’t think he is a dick just very awkward. He is also a pretty impressive guy who just had a play he had written open with Vanessa Redgrave in the lead. I can see how him and Mia makes sense. They are both actors first and foremost as opposed to being movie stars.

  26. bo says:

    This couple is cute and all…for now! It’s great that she doesn’t conform to the medias notion of beauty, but this whole quirky look is only cute while ur young cos once she’s older she will look like a middle aged woman who has let herself go

  27. Another Ann says:

    It is actually kind of sad that everyone now assumes that costars who date are just PR. It really makes perfect sense for costars to end up in a relationship in many cases.

    You have 2 attractive young people, who may have been cast in the first place because they had good chemistry together. You have them work together, side by side, for long hours, with lots of down time to chat and get to know each other. They may have love scenes and need to be fairly intimate together. Then you have them travel around the world together to promote a movie. It’s really not surprising at all that relationships develop out of it. Not necessarily forever, but fun for awhile.

  28. hels says:

    Well she’ll be locking lips with Cumberbatch in January.

  29. Amelia says:

    I thought Mia was awful in Stoker and Jane Eyre. It’s sad that Jesse broke up with his girlfriend, especially if it was to hook up with a starlet. That’s just what Andrew Garfield did once he hit the big time too.

  30. Eve says:

    “I actually don’t know too much about Jesse’s true personality other than him acting slightly d-ckish to a journalist while he promoted his role in Now You See Me.”

    Good grief, people! He wasn’t being a dick to that girl. She, in fact, was behaving like a brat. She tried a schtick and failed. Got hurt by his jokes when she herself made jokes about him (at one point she even mocked his thumbs).

    Then posted a video with parts of the interview edited in an order that made it look like he was angry from the get-go.

  31. Isa says:

    That was Amber heard in Zombie land? She’s much prettier in pictures.

  32. Miss M says:

    “Cute couple?” No.

    I like them together, but I don’t think they are a cute couple.

  33. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Hmm. All I can think about is how extremely pale their children would be (And I’m a pasty girl myself), seriously, the child would need SPF 24/7. They seem well suited though, I can’t see him hooking up with anyone who wasn’t slightly kooky/under the radar. I only saw her in the one with Annette Bening and Julianne Moore…she was ok I think? I do want to see Stoker though.

  34. xxx says:

    I highly doubt this was a deliberate pap walk. Neither seems the type and she is not wearing any make-up at all. They both look pretty crap actually – like normal people do on a regular basis! Surely if it was a pap walk she’d have on just a little bit of make-up?? I actually think they seem perfect for each other. Intellectual, shy, a bit nerdy, amazing actors, a lot of depth…

  35. Kayla says:

    I disagree with all of the rude backlash Jesse Eisenberg has gotten, I believe those that found the particular interview in question as him being “rude” and “arrogant” simply don’t understand Eisenberg as a human being. He has an off-putting sense of humor that’s a bit dry, it’s just who he is as a person. I find him quite enjoyable and don’t think people should take him as seriously as they do; he doesn’t obviously, did any of you see him on Saturday Night Live? He’s a lot funnier and a lot more human than people give him credit for, and that just isn’t fair.
