With so many awkward interviews happening, Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart wanted to make sure they didn’t miss out on all of the uncomfortable fun. So they decided to stage their own.
Ahead of the release of American Ultra, Eisenberg and Stewart filmed an awkward interview for Funny or Die in which the two stars asked each other questions.
Stewart says the studio thought “it would be fun” for the two actors to interview each other, thus commencing an extremely awkward exchange.
Eisenberg ask Stewart easy questions like…
How did you bulk up for this role? What are your favourite sports teams?”
However, the questions Eisenberg are asked are much different.
Are you seeing anyone? Are you pregnant? What about your boobs? Do they ever slip out accidentally? And is that ever funny or awkward? Or do you do that on purpose to get attention? Do you have a favourite boob?”
After receiving questions about fashion designers, dating, pregnancy and boobs, Eisenberg realises how much easier he has it during interviews, when he’s usually just asked if he used to be the class clown.
I’m not uncomfortable doing interviews. I just feel like a lot of the questions you’re asking me feel like they’re not about the movie.”
Eisenberg concludes the interview by deadpanning,
Now I know what it’s like to be a woman.”
