|JESSE EISENBERG:||People on the street say mean things to me.|
|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.”|
Remember the MTV Movie Awards last year where we had voting teams for the Social Network and we were so excited that Jesse and Andrew were going to the same award show and then Jesse went M.I.A. and then we all died when Andrew awkwardly stood up and then sat down even more awkwardly.
”[…] People take pictures of me on the street. I ride a bicycle in New York City on the street and my sister called me and said, “There are pictures of you on your bicycle.” and I said, “How could anyone take a picture on a bicycle?” I’m going so quickly—I don’t even stop at red lights, I go right through them, dangerously. And yet there’s pictures of me on the bicycle… This is very disturbing. I think I am no longer—everything I do now is in public. So, what I’ve started to do is always act, so every time I’m outside, I will always do something that looks awesome. So that if anyone ever takes a picture of me, I look great. Before I leave the house I make sure I look perfect.”
