When a new movie comes out, the stars of the film are required to perform interviews for hours on end.
Problem? The interviews usually suck. The questions are typically generic and don't do justice to the art of the film.
In an effort to shake up the status quo, Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg recently decided to interview one another as part of the publicity push for their new film, American Ultra, which opens August 21.
Right off the bat, Eisenberg speculates that there's something wrong with the interview questions they've been given to ask one another.
"How did you bulk up for this role?" Eisenberg asks Stewart, looking confused.
She effortlessly replies that she focused on staying healthy rather than looking a certain way.
After a few rounds of going back and forth, there becomes a clear difference in the types of questions they are each used to hearing during these interviews.
"Are you seeing anyone at the moment?" Stewart asks Eisenberg, who is obviously taken aback.
"Sorry?" Eisenberg quickly asks, clearly not impressed by the invasive personal nature of the interview.
If it seems awkward now, it's only about to get worse.
He asks if they were given the wrong cards after Stewart asks him about designers, his relationship status, and even if he's pregnant. Stewart insists the questions are fine, as they are things she's asked routinely, but Eisenberg grows increasingly agitated at the "stupid" and "really personal" thinks she's asking.
After he refuses to answer a question about cosmetic procedures he did for the role, Stewart cooly tells him, "It's okay, if you feel uncomfortable doing interviews."
She's insinuating that the problem is clearly Eisenberg's unwillingness to answer questions, and not her fault for invading his privacy in an inappropriate and public way.
"I'm not uncomfortable doing interviews," he argues, "I just feel like a lot of the questions you're asking me feel like they're about things that are not about the movie."
Undeterred, Stewart continued to ask questions about any possible nip slips Eisenberg might have experienced, including the possibility that he may have done some for attention.
Without giving him any time to really respond, she asks if he's had his nails done for the event, and demands to see a close up.
"This is your... job?" Eisenberg said to the man who was standing by to invade his privacy with the ManiCam.
Eisenberg looked visibly nervous to have such a small, inconsequential part of his body scrutinized so closely.
A few more awkward exchanges passed, and Eisenberg decided he had enough.
"Fine. This is the last question, okay? Because I'm not doing this anymore."
The whole interview came to a head when Stewart dropped a bomb on him while giving her final answer. Check it out here:
We love you, KStew!
