Watch Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Call Out Hollywood Sexism In This Interview

Watch Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Call Out Hollywood Sexism In This Interview

In this video from Funny or Die, "American Ultra" co-stars Jesse Eisenberg and Kristen Stewart take #AskHerMore to a whole new level.

In a "Freaky Friday"-esque interview, the actors swap question cards. The two go back and forth between cliché interview questions from 'How did you bulk up for this role?' and 'Are you currently seeing anyone?'. The two eventually subtly call out the sexist tone to all of these questions.

When it comes to questions that men are typically asked, Stewart comments on how fun, or easy they are to answer. Then on the other hand, Eisenberg calls out how questions aimed for female actors are too personal and irrelevant to their work.

"I just feel like a lot of the questions you're asking me feel like they're things not about the movie," he says.
