Invited on the set of C to you, Friday, 21 February, Jesse Eisenberg spoke about his role in The Social Network and its Oscar nomination for his interpretation of Mark Zuckerberg. An Oscar that he doesn’t want to receive.
As we saw in Welcome to Zombieland (2009) Ruben Fleischer, in Batman vs Superman : dawn of justice (2016), in the role of Lex Luthor, in To Rome with love (2012) or Cafe Society (2016), by Woody Allen. At 36 years old, Jesse Eisenberg already has a career is very prolific, between auteur films and blockbusters. And it is (in particular) thanks to its role in The Social Network (2010), David Fincher, where he played the role of the creator of Facebook Mark Zuckerberg, that the actor is aware of (and appreciate) the spectators. His performance had earned at the time of being nominated for an Oscar as best actor. A statuette golden which would have made him the youngest actor rewarded. But Jesse Eisenberg did not win the prize, for the benefit of Colin Firth for his role in The king’s speech, Tom Hooper. Anything to relieve the actor. Yes, relieve. In fact, Jesse Eisenberg did not want to win the Oscar.
Jesse Eisenberg didn’t want (at all) get the Oscar
Guest on the tv show C à vous on France 5, on Friday, February 21, Jesse Eisenberg has explained this to Anne-Elisabeth Lemoine why he had stated ” that there was nothing he could happen to him worse of winning an Oscar “. “I don’t remember exactly this quote, but it looks like something that I would have said,” said the actor, with explained this reaction : “Actually, I’m pretty gloomy, rather pessimistic, even when something pretty cool happens to me…” Soon to the poster of Vivarium, of Lorcan Finnegan, we wish therefore not to be rewarded… ?
