Kristen Stewart Steals Our Heart In “Awkward” Jesse Eisenberg Video

by Hanna Lustig

About a week ago model/actress/muse Cara Delevingne made headlines for what the Internet called a “painfully awkward” interview with Good Day Sacramento meant to publicize her lead role in Paper Towns, the eponymously named filmic adaption of author John Green’s bestselling young adult novel. Things got a little heated when the host asked Delevingne a sexist, condescending question – and rightfully so. Hollywood press junkets are basically sexism summits,  if this new Funny or Die sketch starring Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg is an accurate depiction.

In a parody of Hollywood press junkets, Stewart and Eisenberg interview each other as co-stars of the upcoming stoner flick American Ultra. Stewart asks Eisenberg questions usually posed to actresses – what are your favorite designers?– while Eisenberg asks Stewart questions typically addressed to actors, like “how did you bulk up for this film?”

 In one exchange, Stewart pauses to ask if Eisenberg is “seeing” anyone currently.

“Sorry?” he asks, confused.

“Is this not how they usually go for you?” Stewart asks, faux sympathetically.

“No, I’m normally asked if I’m like the class clown.”

 The questions continue.

Stewart pushes Eisenberg for details about cosmetic enhancements and pregnancy rumors – classic talking points in celebrity media. Each time, he bristles and declines to answer. The questions are invasive and irrelevant to the topic at hand. But when you’re a woman in the Biz, every facet of your inner life and public persona, no matter how private, is considered fodder for conversation.

During his turn as interviewer, Eisenberg asks Stewart about her favorite sports team, remarking the question “seems so easy compared to being asked if you’re pregnant. 

Why yes. I’m sure the women of Hollywood would agree.
