Jesse Eisenberg Movies: ‘Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice’ Actor Doesn’t Watch His Films

Jesse Eisenberg movies aren’t on Jesse Eisenberg’s own viewing queue!

The actor gets so much anxiety over the thought of seeing his work play out on the big screen that he refuses to watch it altogether.

“I don’t watch the movies I’ve been in, so I don’t like to see any of it because if I’m in it, I’m critical, just like how you’d be if you saw pictures of yourself,” the “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” the “American Ultra” actor told Made in Hollywood. “The first thing you’d think of is, ‘I look like an idiot.’ So, could you imagine if you saw that in a movie? They film this in IMAX, so it’s more traumatic. I try to avoid it.”

Lex Luthor Bald: Jesse Eisenberg’s Transformation

But even though he doesn’t act for the sake of sake of seeing himself on camera, he still gets giddy over getting into character.

“I’m most excited that I got to be in the scene that takes place at the end of the movie when my character kind of undergoes this physical transformation,” Eisenberg said oh his Lex Luthor going bald. “For me, that was a very exciting scene to shoot, that if I was a different person, I would very much like to see.”

In “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice,” Jesse Eisenberg camps it up as Batman and Superman’s eccentric villain, who’s determined to bring down Gotham’s saviors–seemingly pulling the strings behind their rivalry.

Gal Gadot, who makes her first appearance as Wonder Woman in the movie, joins forces to keep peace. She tells EW that a strong female character is inspiring. “I’m so happy that when [my daughter] grows up she’s going to see a female figure she can be inspired by.”

The Zack Snyder-directed action film, which also stars Ben AffleckHenry Cavill, Jeremy Irons, Holly Hunter, Diane Lane, Laurence Fishburne and Amy Adams hits theaters on Friday.
