Star: Jesse Eisenberg mocked a film crew member’s ‘minimum wage job’

wenn22801748

One of the last times we wrote about Jesse Eisenberg was over the summer, when he was promoting The End of the Tour and American Ultra (which bombed at the box office). In the midst of the promotional tours, Jesse was asked about his then-recent appearance at his first-ever Comic-Con. He said: “It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don’t know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can’t think of anything that’s equivalent.” He later tried to backtrack in a very patronizing, half-assed, “you didn’t understand what I meant because you’re too stupid” kind of way. Ever since then, it just feels like… yeah, this guy is a douche. Which means I totally believe this Star Magazine story. Here’s my rationale: in no way is Jesse Eisenberg gossip-worthy at a tabloid level, ergo someone on the set of the Jesse’s last film (the Woody Allen one) must have sold this story to Star for like $10.

Jesse Eisenberg isn’t quite the laid-back stoner he portrayed in American Ultra. A source working on his new untitled Woody Allen project says Jesse is making the shoot a living hell for crew members.

“Jesse was practicing his lines and a lighting guy dropped a screwdriver and Jesse just lost it,” recalls the insider. “The poor guy wasn’t even anywhere near Jesse, but he flipped out and threatened to have him fired, then mocked the crew guy for his ‘minimum-wage job’. It was bizarre and uncalled for.”

This isn’t the first time Jesse’s attitude offended someone. In 2013, the actor mocked Univision host Romina Puga while promoting his flop flick ‘Now You See Me’. Romina said their interview left her feeling “humiliated” and that Jesse “butchered” her self-esteem.

“Jesse may come across as a nice guy to the public, but he’s got quite a temper,” adds the source. “Cast and crew walk on eggshells to avoid setting him off.”

[From Star Magazine, print edition]

Do you believe that Jesse Eisenberg would hurl “minimum wage job” at someone to insult them? Well, he does use “genocide” to describe Comic-Con, so… probably. I don’t think it’s so much that he has a “temper” as much as he’s an arrogant, patronizing jackass who believes he’s the smartest guy in the room and he has to make sure everyone else knows that too. Look at you with your minimum wage job, how common. Now I kind of want to see Jesse and Gwyneth Paltrow try to out-smug each other.

    Repulsive. Also, if you must report on this a**wipe, please always use that header photo.

    • CTgirl says:

      That header photo does show all of his scrawny pastiness to perfection. He is so unattractive in every sense. He reminds me of the guy in high school who tried to be impressively verbose and just ended up sounding like an over-compensating douche.

      • Patricia says:

        Yes! Exactly! You hit the nail on the head there.
        There were some of those in college, too.

      • Val says:

        Haha! We all know that guy.

      • MCraw says:

        He’s so ugly, inside and out. That photo shows what a gremlin he is.

        What’s sad is that that lighting tech makes like 30-45$/hr. Not minimum wage, yet even if you thought that, why hurl such an insult to people trying to make your ugly ass look good on screen? I’m surprised the crew hasn’t played pranks on him just to piss him off.

      • joan says:

        I tried to read his book of short stories that’s gotten decent reviews — it was atrocious.

        It read like he looks.

      • DrM says:

        ”scrawny pastiness” YUP you nailed it. UGH

      • JenniferJustice says:

        Thank you to “over-compensating douche” description. He isn’t smart. He plays smart roles because he looks like a nerd and that is all. Yes to all comments re pastiness and lack of muscle tone. I’ve seen better looking pecs on 12 year olds and I’m not exagerating. Dude is totaly fug!!!

        I don’t care if he’s insecure or trying to play with the big dogs in an industry where his looks are less than average. A douche is a douche. I’ll take the crewman making his measly $45/hour whos gotta be worlds more attractive than puny boy here.

    • alice says:

      it’s very common that guys with very low self esteem that comes out of not being attractive at all, in an industry where good looks, like it or not, play a huge part on success, that these guys try to make it up by being arrogant, smug and plain pricks. so yeah i totally see this little worm acting out, I’m sure the crew guy was cute

    • klein says:

      He should read a few interviews with the super humble Paul Newman who always talked about how film stars are just part of a crew making a film and how older movies were better before the ‘movie star’ got their own fancy trailer and lots of special treatment. It’s got to be one of the reasons behind him being so well respected and highly spoken of for such a long time.

      Kylie Minogue also has talked about how she’s just one member of a production team making a show, it’s just her part happens to be lead performer, but that the lighting guys, sound crew etc are all crucial to the show. I always liked her after reading that, even though I hate her music :)

      • Kathy says:

        Because Paul Newman and most stars from back then, earned the old way in the business, talent and by roles. They also didn’t take everything so serious either. Today’s stars cough, cough. Most will be forgotten long before old timers, at least in my way of thinking.

      • klein says:

        @kathy exactly. Plus Paul Newman (and Jimmy Stewart I believe) were both in WW2 and so had experienced some genuine bits of real life before finding fame. No wonder they were so awesome..

    • thelazylioness says:

      Thank you. His actions here are repulsive much like his appearance. Who the f*ck does he think he is? How is he even famous? Money? Parents? Both?

    • knower says:

      Jesse Eisenberg is a little man that isn’t attractive and stands at 5’6.

      he’s insecure. when somebody says things of that nature it’s transparent.

    • LizzyFizzy says:

      His New Yorker essays were awful. Just awful. Whiny and self-indulgent. I pity people who are stuck working with him as crew/behind-the-scenes people, because he probably treats everyone shabbily.

  2. EM says:

    He comes across like a sociopath. Don’t like watching him, his acting is mediocre and he is a horrible interviewee.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I’m liking him less and less with every exposure I get of him. The phrase “minimally talented spoiled brat” could have been written with him in mind.

    • Cindy says:

      That’s kinda what I’m thinking. I’m also thinking that what I thought was brilliant acting in the Social Network was actually just him portraying himself. Someone up thread called him a little worm and I think that fits too. Creep.

      • Simone says:

        Lets hope this movie tank too!!

      • noway says:

        It’s a Woody Allen film. They generally all do around the middle of the road money, at least last few decades anyway. Not that I am a big fan, but I kind of hope this is a crap story, but unfortunately, I think I believe it.

  3. EM says:

    He comes across like a sociopath. Don’t like watching him, his acting is mediocre and he is a horrible interviewee.

  4. NewWester says:

    It is the crew members and other people who work “minimum wage” jobs that make life easier and more comfortable for stick up the a** celebrities like this Titantic sized douche canoe. There is no reason to mock someone doing a honest job and trying to support themselves and family

    • SydneySnider says:

      NewWester: There is if you’re a prize twat. Someone give this trog a very loud microphone and a platform to spew his vitriol far and wide. It won’t be very long before everyone will volunteer to bury him, literally. Problem solved. The fact that he took a job with W Allen…ugh. He likely thought it a perfect vehicle to showcase his deep, artsy, serious acting talent….hahahahaha! Deluded as well. Who could have guessed?

    • Shambles says:

      Yes. All work is honorable work. In the grand scheme of things, Jesse is an entertainer who isn’t actually very entertaining. Therefore, his job is pretty meaningless (since he isn’t good at it, at all). So really, “minimum wage job” guy is doing a hell of a lot better in life than Jesse is. You go minunum wage job guy.

    • meow mix says:

      This whole story though doesn’t even make sense though. Crew members make waaayyyy more than ‘minimum wage’. I’m sure there are some fringe employees and assistants that would make minimum but as someone working with the lighting crew? Plus I would thing he would be part of a union.
      But this guy is still a douche because he probably doesn’t even know this.

      • OrigialTessa says:

        I don’t think anyone working in the film industry, even serving the lunch make minimum wage or anywhere close. A lot of jobs on films are highly technical jobs that take experienced and trained technicians, or artists, or engineers. These people get paid to do what they do, just like you do Jessie, you effing d*ck.

      • Tifygodess says:

        @meow mix- But It’s not that literal, Jessie sitting up on his high horse with his huge ego thinks that because this guy isn’t at “his level and as important as he is” it must mean he’s just some despensible minimum wage loser and is allowed to attack him as such. And I’m sure everyone outside of jesses world in his mind is working for minumn wage since we are all such peasants since he thinks he so great.

      • anon says:

        The “lighting guy” is a set electrician. They make close to $30 an hour and usually for a 12 hour day, so for the last 4 hours they are making time and a half. And over the 12 hours they make double-time. The electrician is making a comfortable living, not compared to actors salaries, but compared to most people. There are some positions on a film set that do make close to minimum wage though, but those are entry level positions. The electrican is in a union and therefore has a decent wage and nice benefits. I doubt he’s losing any sleep over this (if in fact it even happened).

      • Christin says:

        My guess is that he was generalizing, basing it on what is ‘minimum wage’ (or close to it) in the film world. Jacka $$ es* usually don’t try to be precise.

        * No offense to animals intended

    • bellenola says:

      I know quite a few people working in film, my husband even did for a bit- they work so hard, with such long hours, and put up with so much BS. I don’t know how they do it, frankly.

      • Christin says:

        I would guess they don’t have a comfy trailer or the perks that the ‘stars’ have, either.

        A recently released movie with an ensemble cast was filmed near my hometown. The locals who were extras gave little interviews in our newspaper about how the cast treated them. They didn’t print negative stories, but the local blogs filled in those blanks.

        One co-star, who has been well known for years but is a tad controversial, refused to start her scene until all the extras (who had been waiting in a very hot church for hours) were given bottles of water. I thought that was very nice. This same celebrity was also said to have spent an hour or more at a local restaurant posing for pictures and giving autographs, on her own time.

        That’s how you treat crew, extras, fans, etc.

    • nicegirl says:

      What a jerk. And yep, lighting folks make WAYYY more than minimum wage. Of course HE makes more than they do, but skilled workers on a most likely union job certainly are not making minimum wage.

      Funnily enough, great crew is hard to come by. It’s pretty easy to find folks who think they have ‘talent’ though – the list behind this kid is probably long and filled with dudes who have more talent than this kid- whereas the folks with skills and experience on a crew is a rather short list. Kind of makes the crew jobs seem MORE important than the cast, huh?

      Haha, Jesse thinks he is irreplaceable. Dude, you are not Beyonce.

  5. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Unattractive, inside and out.

    • Snazzy says:

      YUP. the more I read about him, the less I like him. Smug, pretentious douche

    • knower says:

      That’s why he says things like that. I’ve met many people like him. They are insecure so they devour as much knowledge as possible knowing they ‘at least can be booksmart’.

      They need the sense of superiority to feel better about themselves since they lack in areas they are VERY sensitive about lacking in (probably looks, height…..for this one. I bet he got turned down by a LOT of girls when he was not famous).

      If he wasn’t an actor he probably would be a school shooter.

      • qwerty says:

        “If he wasn’t an actor he probably would be a school shooter. ”

        THIS IS BEAUTIFUL. TERRIBLE, BUT BEAUTIFUL.

  6. karen says:

    What an insufferable dick. I can’t stand him.

  7. Div says:

    Part of me thinks this is BS because STAR, but I can kind of buy him as the total buttoned up fairly easy going type of guy who just gets batsh*t crazy mean on occasion. He’s given some fairly elitist answers too, he’s kind of the opposite of all the actors who are posh and want to seem tough.

    • lucy2 says:

      Me too – I usually dismiss most Star stories, but I could totally believe this one.
      I’ve always found him irritating and unappealing, and the stories about him in recent years only add to it.

  8. Margo says:

    I actually liked Eisenberg at one time (an enjoyable, if somewhat limited actor and I admired his desire to explore areas of the arts, including playwriting), but it’s gotten to the point now where I’m even beginning to side-eye people associated with him, like Mia Wasikowska (who I love as an actress, so ugh). He reminds me of so many self-important douches I knew in my English program in college.

    • Anname says:

      Are they still together?

    • Kath says:

      I think Mia’s a good kid. Don’t forget that Carey Mulligan dated Shia Ledouche, so weirder things have happened.

      God, that first photo of him is repulsive.

      • Holmes says:

        Carey Mulligan is nearly as bad as Shia LaDouche, she’s just much better at not being a mess in public. Mia, on the other hand, could do much better and I really wish she would unload this pasty, arrogant dolt.

      • Cindy says:

        @holmes
        Oh no! I like Carey Mulligan! If you don’t mind, what did she do? This is the down side to celebrity gossip though….finding out an actor you like is an ahole :(

    • qwerty says:

      Mia was mesmerizing in “In Treatment”. And she was just a kid too.

  9. lesbastardsmiserables says:

    Err well I’ve been hearing stuff like this just from online gossip since I knew who he was so I can’t say I’m surprised. If it’s true, he has a disproportionate ego and I am sorry for the crew.

    • Div says:

      If it’s true, he’s probably annoyed a lot of colleagues too. Some directors try and reuse some of the same crew, and it’s not unusual for actors to have friends or family who work crew too.

      • belle de jour says:

        This. It is every bit as stupid to insult the crew as it is to insult your waiter.

        Wonder if he fetches his own lunch from the craft services table…

    • Jellybean says:

      I think it is very easy to come across badly in the media, particularly if you don’t play the game very well and once they don’t like you they go after you every way they can. However, if you are well liked in the industry I think that isn’t a major problem, since only a tiny fraction of film goers ever read this stuff and people want to work work with you. It is a completely different thing if you are a pain to work with and if he isn’t careful this could end his career.

  10. Kiki says:

    This is why I can’t stand rich people who thinks they are “better than you”. If that was me… Hell hath no fury when I turn his stones. I would light in his tail, give him some good Caribbean cuss and walk off. Jesse Eisenberg is just a Douchbag and an arrogant son of a bitch. He made Kany West look saner.

  11. Minxx says:

    I don’t understand why this guy is a movie star. He’s ugly, has no talent and, on the top of everything else, is a massive douche. I can’t stand him, he ruins every movie he’s in for me.

  12. Little Darling says:

    Wait, this dude isn’t Mark Zuckerberg?

    • smcollins says:

      Lol, no. But he did play MZ in The Social Network (and was nominated for an Oscar, no doubt adding to his douchey holier-than-thou attitude).

  13. Ally8 says:

    That’s disappointing to hear. Someone should point out to him that rude and interesting are not the same thing.

  14. Snappyfish says:

    He will be his own undo-ing & that’s always fun to watch.

    • SydneySnider says:

      So true, Snappyfish. I’m plumping up the cushions on my couch right now in readiness for it. That will likely be his award-winning performance.

      “Now I kind of want to see Jesse and Gwyneth Paltrow try to out-smug each other.” <<<<< Someone immediately needs to delegate to make this happen.

    • PennyLane says:

      Exactly. A smart reporter would do well to give this guy lots of encouragement and lots of rope in their next interview with him.

    • Cindy says:

      But that’s the crappy thing….it won’t be his undoing. As long as he brings in money, they will hire him. I hope you’re right though.

  15. Meg says:

    obviously he’s not the smartest guy in the room and he knows it or he wouldn’t feel the need to remind everyone ‘hey, i’m better than you, just a reminder.’ I can’t believe a jewish man used ‘genocide’ to describe something other than actual genocide. that’s like someone describing something is ‘like being raped’ nothing is like being raped except being raped.

  16. Tiffany says:

    Star always finds a way to shoot themselves in the foot with their gossip. If you are going to be smartassy with your story, at least be accurate. Now You See Me is his biggest hit. Oh, honey.

  17. kay says:

    Are people surprised, this isn’t the first he behaves like a douchbag. He’s Shia LaDouch 2.0 without the drinking.

    Oh and his close friends with K.Stewart who mocked teachers and rape victims. They also like Woody Allen.

    • Bucketbot13 says:

      I really want to give KS a chance and see where her career is going. I would like to think that she just spouts nonsense most times – like shes very try hard and doesn’t think things through.

      But other than that I agree.

    • Mabel says:

      How did Kristen Stewart mock teachers and rape victims?

    • cd3 says:

      Gross. He is just gross. KS is equally awful. Frankly, I can’t think of a recent movie I want to see LESS than a movie with him, KS and directed by Woody Allen.

  18. Moxie Remon says:

    He’s not even remotely attractive to think he can speak to people like that, yet, he still has to say something. He could just get in submarine and disappear along with Miles Teller.

    • Iskra says:

      Because being attractive allows you to sh…t on people?

      • Holmes says:

        Certainly not, but most movie stars with no talent and an appalling attitude are at least nice to look at. This guy doesn’t even have that going for him.

      • antipodean says:

        Sort of like, the only thing worse than being attractive and sh*ting on others, is being unattractive, and sh*ting on others.
        I think this guy must have been behind the door when the “consideration chips” were given out. Remember Jesse, there is dignity in all work, and one day you might just BE that minimum wage guy.

  19. Franca says:

    I used to like him si much, such a shame that he seems to be an a-hole.

    Gwyneth is smug and elitist, but there were never reports like this aroumd her, were they? She seems to be pleasant to the people around her.

    • Kath says:

      Yeah, Gwynnie may be rich and clueless, but I don’t think she’s mean.

    • Lizzie McGuire says:

      I feel bad for Gwyneth I don’t think she would ever yell at someone or mock them for having a minimum wage job. She probably would make them eat gluten free organic pizza but never yell.

    • Esmom says:

      Yeah, I agree that Goop isn’t in the same league as he is. I know people find her insufferable but from what I can discern she’s got far more redeeming qualities than Eisenberg who seems to have virtually none.

    • Betsy says:

      Yeah, Gwyneth seems smug from cluelessness, but genuinely tries to understand things (albeit from an ivory tower). This guy looks like he’s an ugly little turd. I realize we oughtn’t judge faces, but so much dickishness.

  20. JustJen says:

    What the h*ll kind of undershirt is that?? It doesn’t LOOK like a men’s shirt. It looks like one of the undershirts I used to buy my daughter that had a tiny bow on the front.

  21. Rhiley says:

    I don’t think it is fair to compare Goop and Jesse. Goop is snob for sure, but she doesn’t seem abusive. This guy is getting a reputation for being not only being a snob, but also acting like an abusive pr*ck.

  22. Kath says:

    The benchmark for a decent human being, in my opinion, is how you treat those with less power than you. (This includes animals).

    Anyone who gets their jollies ridiculing, belittling or hurting someone who may not have their privilege, resources or good fortune is an a-hole.

    • Lilacflowers says:

      So accurate. I was always taught to be nice to everyone, especially to those people working in those low-paying jobs. They’re people too and deserve respect; they have enough to deal with trying to make ends meet; nobody is any better than anyone else; and treating them badly can come back to bite you hard. A sure way to do yourself in at a workplace is to have the building staff or the support staff against you.

      • Dara says:

        ” A sure way to do yourself in at a workplace is to have the building staff or the support staff against you.”

        I worked with someone ages ago that never learned that – she never understood why everyone in the support groups (Facilities, IT, Mailroom, Reception) only grudgingly came to her aid even when she screamed bloody murder. Umm, maybe it was because she bullied and belittled them at every turn and never failed to remind them (and everyone really) that she worked for one of the big bosses and was therefore somehow better than they were. She’d be endlessly chasing after them for help, while all the rest of us had to do was make a quick phone call, ask nicely for help, and someone would be at our desk in minutes to lend a hand.

        p.s. Those “support” people were some of the brightest and most interesting people in the building and some of their life stories were truly astounding. A job title or salary is never an accurate measure of your worth as a human being.

      • Lilacflowers says:

        @Dara, when we interview new hires, we check with the building’s concierge and our receptionist for their impressions. If the person was rude, no second interview. Support staff can easily undermine a project completely, with no evidence that they did so, if a person is a jerk to them. I once worked with a woman who wouldn’t deign to speak to the building people, whom she wrongly insisted were all illegal aliens. Until the night she accidentally threw her car keys away and expected them to search the dumpster for her. The cleaners refused to help. The head janitor showed her which dumpster to search and told her to call him when she was done. They would have helped anyone else.

    • Kori says:

      My dad was vice president at an international import/export company. When he died, my mom received a sympathy card signed by the cleaning crew. They noted how he was the only executive who knew their names and always had a smile, hello/goodbye and thank you for them and how much that was appreciated. That has always stuck with me.

    • NUTBALLS says:

      Agreed. It’s like the adage that however your date treats the wait staff at the restaurant is how he’ll be treating you in 6 months. It really doesn’t take much effort to be kind to others.

      I also try to bear in mind that I have no idea what battles that person may be facing (cancer diagnosis, loss of a loved one/job, depression etc) so as to not add to any burden they may already be bearing.

  23. funcakes says:

    I hope he brings his own food to the of his movies because if he on the movie set everyone must be doing so heinous things to his food before he eats it.
    That goes for whatever restaurants he dines at also.

  24. grabbyhands says:

    Dear jackass,

    If it wasn’t for this crew member, most of whom do hard, demanding work at their “minimum wage” jobs, entitled, self righteous asshats like you might find life a lot more unpleasant and unorganized on set. Then how much fun would it be to woodenly emote on screen for the child molester you’re currently working for?

  25. Nicolette says:

    Apparently Mr. Douche was raised with a silver spoon in his mouth and never had a job working for minimum wage.

  26. K says:

    He keeps this up and he will be back to a minimum wage job plus tips.

    What an ass there is nothing wrong with working a minimum wage job. It’s an honest job; it is wrong to mock someone for it. Disgusting

  27. lila fowler says:

    Of course I’m not surprised. I rolled my eyes at his Oscar nom for The Social Network, as I never thought he was acting in that movie, just basically being himself. The bar is so low for the Academy these days.

    There must be something wrong with Mia W. if she’s been with this douche for this long.

    • saltandpepper says:

      Although I agree his alleged comments are terrible, why does Celebitchy keep on posting articles from Star if they slam the very same publication for fabricating their material? Help me out here please.

  28. Blackbetty says:

    He looks exactly like my ex- also a huge arrogant, douchbag.

  29. Dani says:

    I read an article after the Facebook movie came out that Jesse didn’t have a hard time playing douchey, insufferable Mark Zuckerberg because he’s exactly like that in real life. This doesn’t surprise me.

  30. Fanny says:

    I too am wondering whether he and Mia are still together. Breakups can cause guys to douche out. (See also: Andrew Garfield.) And Mia was extremely subdued on the Crimson Peak press tour. I know she’s reserved but she really was like a piece of silent, soggy toast the whole time.

    • Anin says:

      I think in the last few appearances Mia did with Tom and Jessica she seemed a bit more relaxed and somewhat happy :-)

  31. Jag says:

    He is hideous, both in appearance and personality.

  32. kells-bells says:

    I’ve always thought he was a jerk – he treats the people who interview him like trash and it turns out, he treats the crew like trash, too. SCREW HIM. If he’s headlining in a film, I won’t pay money to watch it.

  33. manta says:

    His flop Now you see me?

    Didn’t this one make approximately 350 millions at the box office worlwide and wasn’t it kind of a surprise success a couple of years ago? hence the number 2 coming our way?

    • Pondering thoughts says:

      And I liked that movie.
      Not a brilliantly intellectual movie nor an artsy artsy movie but very enjoyable. Nice twists in the plot and all. No over-the-top violence. Depicts that smart is better than a lot of other things.

      Good.

  34. Isabelle says:

    He’s not attractive enough or a good enough actor to be around 20 years from now. He is future B movie material or he will disappear completely.

  35. Anon says:

    He reminds me of K-Stew and Kirsten Dunst. People who are “artists” yet manage to make crap blockbusters and then talk them up like they’re shakespeare or something. They were raised in artistic environments, and have no actual understanding of the real world. I’d love for Chris Pratt or Clooney to have been around for this, they would have ripped him apart.

    • WhoDat says:

      You DO realize Chris Pratt is just as much a dick, right? Didn’t want to do Jurassic unless he was paid a s–tload of money, among other things.

      • Alicia says:

        He’s a “dick” for fighting for a nice payday? Um, okay.

        And Chris Pratt is an animal killer. He gets pleasure from shooting defenseless animals. He once said he wanted to go big game hunting in Africa. I doubt he’ll say that now, he wouldn’t want to destroy that humble, sweetheart persona he has obtained.

    You are an actor. Get over yourself.

  37. Lyla says:

    Was this movie with Kristen Stewart? I wonder if she on set and present. Cause if I recall correctly, her dad is a crew member. Wonder how she felt.

  38. Dr. Funkenstein says:

    Another young “celebrity” with no sense of perspective. As it’s highly unlikely anyone will care who he is in ten years, he might do well to be a bit kinder to the “help.” In the immortal words of Jackie Gleason, “be kind to the people that you meet on the way up, because they’re the same people you’re going to meet on the way down.”

  39. Sharkeee says:

    Weird. My friend was part of the crew on Batman v Superman, I remember he was telling me how Jesse ate lunch with the crew sometimes and it was cool. Maybe he’s one of those “artistes” who freaks if you interrupt their process.

  40. iheartgossip says:

    Don’t like him anyway. Won’t pay to see a movie he is in. Go away.

  41. tabasco says:

    This guy is no big box office draw, no great talent, etc. He could be replaced in a heartbeat and no one would care. I’d fire his ass from the film for this. It would probably sell more tickets.

  42. Sam says:

    I keep seeing pics of him on set in costume for this movie he’s shooting with K-Stew. I don’t know anything about it, but I’m guessing it’s supposed to be set in the 20′s or 30′s based on his suit and hairstyle. It looks like they’re styling him perfectly and Kristen is wearing half of a halloween costume, or wearing the costume before she has her hair/makeup done. I probably won’t see this movie, but if I did I feel like I would be distracted by the lack of effort that appears to have gone into her styling

  43. Sarah01 says:

    I actually liked watching him, he does play himself a lot, however after the comic con and other reports of his arrogance I won’t watch him. Yes he’s totally replaceable. The actor who admire and really hope he does well is Colin Morgan he’s handsome, phenomenal actor and most importantly humble. Humility is the most endearing quality in my book. Hate humble braggers.

    • Lucky Charm says:

      Was Colin Morgan the guy who played Merlin? I really liked him in that show. He seems like a really nice person.

      • Sarah01 says:

        Yes it was Merlin, my son loves him as Merlin and i love him as Colin. I seriously never liked any celebrity as much as him and I can’t explain it! Keanu was my forever crush but colin is on another level – is this normal?

      • Sarah01 says:

        My favourite show on tv is the fall and now Colin is on that show too, I hope he stays on in season 3.

  44. WinonaRyder says:

    He sounds pretty idiotic, but Now You See Me was not a flop like that article states. It made 4x its budget, with a gross over 300m.

  45. uninspired username says:

    So he’s actually a perfect Lex Luthor, then?

  46. AuroraBorealis says:

    Not a fan of Jesse but regarding that interview with that girl, he wasn’t really being a jerk to her there, it seemed like playful banter to me, if she can’t handle playful banter or a little teasing from a celebrity, maybe grow thicker skin if you’re going to be an interviewer.

    • Pondering thoughts says:

      Keeping things civil in an interview is a duty for both sides.
      And if Jesse noticed that he attacked her self esteem it would have been the decent thing to do to reassure her. Or at least afterwards. He needs good interviews as much as does she.
      To me it doesn’t bode well if somebody says that a professional conversation butchered the self-esteem of the other person.
      Some people are still learning on the job or fu**in* u_p by accident … it is the nice thing to do to stretch out your hand and help them back onto their feet. Interviewer and interviewed person aren’t competitors.

      See #48 – link to the interview. It didn’t go well. Don’t know why they published it. Why didn’t they just re-shoot?

  47. Dawn says:

    I’ve never understood how this creep can get roles? He is not good looking nor can he act. He must being doing some big producers is all I can say. He is just lucky he isn’t parking cars. What a goon.

  48. Pondering thoughts says:

    I had seen other interviews with Jesse and he seemed to like the idea that he was smart or smarter than his opposite.

    Nope I don’t think this interview went well:

    And yes, being on a the red carpet and dozens of fans scream at you can be scary. There are fans who literally rip the clothes of their idol. Though calling that “genocide” is a bit over the top.

  49. AnotherDirtyMartini says:

    I want to punch his lights out. Smug little dweeb.

  50. raincoaster says:

    Nobody with a face like that and this many flops on their resume can afford to be mean to the Little People for long. He’ll learn.

  51. Fishfishbirdcats says:

    I have no idea who this guy is as an actor, and I refuse to google him and increase his Google tally. What a mean little zero.

  52. FF says:

    Didn’t he admit once to not watching films (any, not just his)?

    I keep wondering if there’s some hidden depth that makes Mia Wasikowska date this guy.

    For all the reports that he’s kind of a douche, i haven’t come across any interviews or appearances that successfully counteract that.

    So the side-eye continues.

  53. Marianne says:

    I totally believe the story. Jesse has always come across as arrogant and thinks his sh** don’t smell. He acts like he’s above it all.

  54. Penelope says:

    This stiff delivers his lines the EXACT same way no matter what movie he’s in or what character he’s playing. Limited talent, long on arrogance and douchiness. Can’t stand him and believe every word of this.

  55. Gen says:

    This kind of lost credibility for me when they added on the detail about that Romina Puga interview. I didn’t think he seemed in the wrong at all there. She seemed like a bratty bitch who is used to people slobbering all over her (because she’s very cute), and she got very antagonistic when he didn’t seem charmed by her and instead gently ribbed her for her interview skills. He wasn’t excessively mean at all. It’s a pretty funny interview actually.

    If that is another example of his explosive temper, then I don’t know…
