Jesse Eisenberg vs Romina Puga; 'He's such a jerk'

“Social Network” star Jesse Eisenberg has dubbed a “jerk” after his interview with Romina Puga, according to Daily Telegraph on June 4. Page was interviewed Eizenberg for her Univision show, “Say My Name With Romina.” All Puga wanted to do was discuss Jesse’s new movie, “Now You See Me.” What she got was something much more than his usual sarcasm.

Comments about the interview remark about Jesse’s “dry sense of humor.” But it’s this humor that left Romina feeling “humiliated” and wanting to break down to cry. Puga felt her self-esteem had been “butchered” by Eisenberg and she felt she did nothing to warrant his mean comments.

During the interview Puga called Morgan Freeman by his last name. Jesse didn’t let her finish the question before calling her out on it. “Freeman? Who are you? What are you on a baseball team with him?” he drilled. Instead of a friendly interview, the atmosphere because “tense and awkward.” “Don’t call Morgan Freeman, “Freeman” like you’re on a little league softball team.”

Puga had something written on her hand and Eisenberg called her out on it calling her the “Carrot Top of interviewers.” "He appears as a self absorbed, condescending, narcissistic jerk. He works so hard at trying to appear to be of superior intelligence that he winds up simply looking arrogant," wrote Tonia Blanton on Puga's blog. While some agree, others are calling her “fame-seeking” and “rude.”
