WATCH: Jesse Eisenberg Mocks Reporter During Now You See Me Interview


By Michael Lewittes



Jesse Eisenberg gave a reporter a very hard time during a recent press interview for his new movie, Now You See Me.


The actor continuously berated host Romina Puga while appearing on her Univision show, “Say My Name With Romina.”

Eisenberg mocked Puga for referring to Morgan Freeman simply as “Freeman,” saying, “Freeman? What are you on a baseball team with him?”

“Don’t call Morgan Freeman ‘Freeman’ like you’re on a little league softball team with him,” he chided.

The Social Network star also called Puga “the Carrot Top of interviewers.”

When Puga said she may cry at the insult, Eisenberg responded, “Don’t cry now, cry after the interview is over.”

Afterwards, Puga blogged about the extremely awkward sit down, writing, “Jesse Eisenberg is the quick-witted bully you think he is. He’s smart, sharp, and mean.”

She called the interview “tortuous.”
