Jesse Eisenberg 'feels bad' for unsuccessful actors

August 31st, 2011

Jesse Eisenberg has admitted he "feels bad" for some actors.

The '30 Minutes or Less' star struggled to see the point of a career in film five years ago, having had parts taken from him and dealing with bad reviews of good performances , and Jesse admits he worries about other actors who have not had any big successes.

He said: "You do movies that you really believe in and they get terrible reviews and open in tiny theatres.

"I feel bad for the people involved because for me, I have other movies that year, but for some of them that might be their only movie."

The 29-year-old actor also revealed he doesn't like going to the cinema and watches films to fuel his narcissism.

He said: "I don't really like movies unless they're about people like me, about their cultures and neuroses and self-indulgence and self-loathing.

"So I guess, in a way, movies are just a way to further my own narcissism."
