"I live without a television and have for the last 10 years. I don't go to movies. I don't receive magazines. I try not to receive mail. I'm not aware at all of popular culture. Or unpopular culture. It's kind of strange to be part of something that has had some cultural impact because I have nothing personally to add to that discussion."

    He forgot to say that he also lives in a cave with no windows. (:



  2. 2

    He's actually kinda hot.



  3. 3

    well, that would explain his weirdness………



  4. 4

    then how did he possibly get hired if he doesn't live in the 21st century?



  5. 5

    I used to think he was cool, but after that statement I think he's a SUPREME DOUCHE.



  6. 6

    That guy sounds like a douche.



  7. 7

    Okay Johnny Depp..



  8. 8

    Celebrities will say the weirdiest things to seem 'hip', 'current', whatever…yea, he is a movie actor and doesn't see movies…



  9. 9

    oh I like him.



  10. 10

    And he has a bunch of cats.

    Some people take pride in not owning a TV set or being connected to the world. So be it. Fortunately he owns a phone and knows how to use it to parlay auditions.



  12. 12

    TIME magazines Person of the Year, despite Julian Assange receiving the MOST public votes, Zuckerberg came tenth in a poll of TEN



  13. 13

    Ha! I thought that was Zuckerberg for a second! Eisenberg is not person of the year either!!



  14. 14

    Yeah right, i bet the only mail he receives is a check to be cashed, pompous asshole.



  15. 15

    douch bag…



  16. 16

    Ok you're an unpopular nerd we get it



  17. 17

    Pretentious douche.

    Re: hexywexy – Jesse only played Zukerberg. He's not actually him. Jesse reminds me of someone who might be somewhat autistic.

    I really respect that. What a great way to remain authentic. Too bad he'll never read our comments.



  20. 20

    what a horrible way to live life, to know absolutely nothing of what's going on in the world. that's nothing to brag about. and you know that he feels superior to us who do watch tv or receive mail. what a freak.



  21. 21

    What a load of B.S.



  22. 22

    He didn't say he doesn't have a computer. He's got enough. Who needs t.v. anyway? It's just garbage that dumbs people down. Maybe he actually has something called hobbies, that involve doing something other than growing fat and stupid in front of the idiot box screen.



  23. 23

    I try not to receive mail? Why? What an ass clown. We get it. You're sooooo above it all.



  24. 24

    THE GUY IS A FUCKING GAY DOUCHE BAG STRUNG OUT ON WEED!!! THOSE ARE THE VEGAN IDIOTS ALWAYS TALKING ABOUT A HAVING A "CLEAN" LIFESTYLE HIDING IN A WINDOWLESS CAVE FOR THE LAST 10YRS WHOSE GOAL IS TO LIVE ON A FUCKING DESOLATE ISLAND OFF THE COAST OF BANGLEDESH OR SOMETHING. WE ALL KNOW THOSE JACKASS TYPES. WELCOME TO THE CLUB EISENBERG!!!!!!!



  25. 25

    Re: marlow – My thoughts exactly - if he's got a computer, he doesn't need TV, papers, books, or postal service!!



  26. 26

    Translation "Oh I'm too cool for all that shit"



  27. 27

    he is a liar



  28. 28

    Thats a smart thing to do. Pop culture has taken a dive into shit anyway, nobody is missing out on much.



  29. 29

    Like others have said, He never says he doesn't own a computer, and being that he's still a college student I think its pretty safe to assume he owns one.He says he doesn't GO to movies but doesn't say he doesn't watch movie. He TRIES not to recieve mail and doesn't recieve magazines (who does that anymore?) if it makes him happy them let him be.



  30. 30

    Re: Snarky404
    I try not to receive mail as well.. since normally it comes in the form of a bill or junk! =)



  31. 31

    It's so good to know that there are people, like Jesse, to inform all the rest of us of how supremely stupid we are for taking part in the cultural means that afford him the means, to even have a platform to speak on. He should take it to the next level. I know some Eisenbergs who live in East Williamsburg who don't even use electricity or running water and they, my Jewish little friend of 27 years, are looking for a roommate.



  32. 32

    How trendy of you….Goof!



  33. 33

    I never believe people when they say this!



  34. 34

    STFU!!!!!!!! does he really think this makes him superior?



  35. 35

    While I hope these aren't his words, if they are, too bad man. You slit your own throat.

    Re: marlow – I see your point and agree not everyone needs a tv, but an actr saying he doesn't watch movies? I'm srry that´s BS or he simply acts just to act and doesn't have respect for his profession. Is like a ballerina saying she doesn't watch ballet videos or a doctor saying he/she doesn't read medical journal/articles



  37. 37

    Re: uyeah – I completely agree with you.



  38. 38

    Then why would he care to be a part of pop culture and the movie industry. He sounds undeserving of the fame he has garnered.



  39. 39

    what a pretentious fucknut



  40. 40

    Re: irtabby – So he doesn't like pop culture and movies. So what? He deserves the fame he got because he worked hard for it. I have more respect for actors who doesn't follow pop cultures.



  41. 41

    Well aren't you sophisticated…. Psht.



  42. 42

    He is cute! Well, I have NOT watched TV for the last 7 years, I use the TV to play video games lol PS3… I dont read magazines at all, I use the internet to check news and stuff… so what! not everyone is obsessed with all the popculture and trendy things, I pick what I want.



  43. 43

    let's see: I don't have a T.V. because I'm in college (so is he), I don't go to the movies because of class/work so I rarely have time, I rarely check my mailbox because I'm never expecting anything, and I don't have a subscription to a magazine (how many of us do?). He's not being pretentious, he just doesn't need those things in his life. In fact, none of us do. I don't and I'm perfectly fine!



  44. 44

    i absolutely love him :)



  45. 45

    I like Jesse Eisenberg I think hes a great actor. BUT I'm so sick of celebrities particularly actors being pretentious and being all above popculture. By saying "Oh i dont even own a televison" "i dont watch TV shows/movies" Ok then why the FUCK do you act on tv/movies? Just fucking accept that you do it for the money or fame then! Because you obviously dont do it for the love of movies or for the love of acting. If that were the case then why not do plays, stage acting or whatever if you're soo above it all! Ridiculous



  46. 46

    Yeah fucking right. Go away douche bag.



  47. 47

    I kinda like him



  48. 48

    He is utterly and completely full of shit! I remember dicks saying pretentious bullshit like that in my college days to 'impress' chicks on how cool they were. If he is in Hollywood, it would be impossible to be that willfully ignorant.



  49. 49

    There's nothing better than making money off a culture that you shun. I say he goes all the way and stops making money from this lifestyle that is beneath him. It's so pretentious. It would be like a mechanic not driving a car or knowing anything about them outside of work. He doesn't go to the movies? Perhaps I should also stop going to the movies, then he can get a job on a farm or something.

    i need to be more like that. i'm over worldly things. I am going to make that a goal when I turn 21.. don't need to own a tv!! ahh i am freaking out just thinking about it lol
