Jesse Eisenberg Doesn’t Use Facebook

Jesse Eisenberg who portrays Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg in David Fincher’s biopic The Social Network admits that he doesn’t actually use Facebook.

Eisenberg shared that asking whether someone uses Facebook these days is like asking if they use the telephone.

During his time filming The Social Network, Eisenberg has grown fond of Zuckerberg.

“I never met Mark, although, I developed a great affection for him because I spent six months thinking about him and defending his position,” Eisenberg said. “It’s pretty much impossible to play a role and not defend his behavior.”

But does he feel like he’s hurting Zuckerberg’s image?

“I thought of it as an actor and acting in a scene. The fact that it was about a real person, we’ve already thought about and dealt with,” Eisenberg said. “I genuinely felt and still do that everything I do as my character is explainable. That’s what I was hired to do.”
