Jesse Eisenberg knows a thing or two about exotic birds, having voiced a macaw in the smash hit, Rio.
In the animated film, Rio and his friends have to deal with illegal trafficking of exotic birds and the destruction of wildlife and the habitation.
Jesse wants to urge potential owners to be cautious when deciding to buy a exotic bird.
The actor says the following:
If an animal’s natural home is in the wild, then chances are, that’s where it belongs. Unfortunately, the demand for these intelligent, complex creatures – whether captive-bred or wild caught – is decimating the wild parrot species.
Watch (above) as Jesse preaches the importance of letting wild birds be wild.
A pet can be a lot of things for their human counterparts; a friend, a cuddlier, a protector, etc…
But Social Network star Jesse Eisenberg's gets something unusual from his pets.
The Actor said:
"I'm a foster parent for cats and the more movies I do, the more guilty I feel — and the more cats I feel the need to get to alleviate the guilt from doing the movies. And then if a movie is, god forbid, popular … then I have to get even more cats."
How many cats does it take to clear and oscar nom's conscious? Jesse says the number of furry friends in his house is always changing. He said "Seriously, it depends on the day."
At the permire to his new flick Rio Jesse told People:
"[I have] 42 cats. They're at the premiere. We got them seats."
Not only does Eisenberg provide food and shelter for numerous cats, he acts as a gatekeeper for their reputations as well.
"They don't like to be talked about in the press," he said, ending the interview. "They get embarrassed."

Jesse Eisenberg, star of The Social Network, is not only a great actor, but a pet lover!
While appearing on Conan in November, the actor admitted he's a foster parent for cats.
When Conan O'Brien asked if the actors life had changed since the huge release of The Social Network, Eisenberg joked:
"I've gotten more cats. I'm a foster parent for cats and the more movies I do, the more guilty I feel — and the more cats I feel the need to get to alleviate the guilt from doing the movies. And then if a movie is, God forbid, popular … then I have to get even more cats."
LOLs! As long as he doesn't become a crazy cat
lady man, we think that's awesome.
He elaborated on his feline friends, saying:
"I have two now, but I'm on a list where they can deliver them to the house. To be a foster parent for cats is basically to have tenants coming in and out. I have a lot of cats, a lot of cat food, a lot of litter — and nothing else in the apartment."
"So, just cat paraphernalia is what you have," O'Brien asked, to which Eisenberg joked back:
"My life is basically just feeding and cleaning cats. And then I get to be the Sexiest Geek Alive. It's a real blast."
His love and compassion for cats definitely cements him as Sexiest Geek Alive for us!
