• JESSE EISENBERG: People on the street say mean things to me.
  • INTERVIEWER: Like what?
  • JESSE EISENBERG: I get called Napoleon Dynamite because I have curly hair. I live in New York City and I ride a bicycle. I always bike down 9th Avenue and there’s this kid who goes to school there named Abraham. Every time I pass him, he calls me Napoleon Dynamite. He screams it out and his friends laugh. That was a fine movie but I wasn’t in it.
  • INTERVIEWER: What do you say back?
  • JESSE EISENBERG: I say, “Please, Abraham, I’m not that man.”
"He’s the most polite and lovely person. I think one of the difficulties with being interviewed, and being interviewed a lot, is how you deal with it. I have a kind of constant glib insincerity, so speaking to me is utterly meaningless, but Jesse tries to answer the question and wrestles with it. He’s more engaged on a human level than I am. So it’s quite hard unless you have that kind of bubble of easy glib insincerity to not look shifty or like you are being difficult. I think sometimes Jesse’s made the mistake of genuinely trying to engage with people when they just want to go, “So what are your favourite three cheeses?” He might go, “Oh I don’t know, I thought we were here to talk about…?” and the press go “Oh, what an arsehole.” But he’s lovely and you couldn’t hope for more. He’s completely funny and delightful."
