"Given Eisenberg's neurotic candour, it comes as something less than an enormous shock to learn that one of his next roles – after the crime caper 30 Minutes Or Less, due for US release this summer – is rumoured to be in Woody Allen's next movie, alongside Ellen Page, Alec Baldwin and Penélope Cruz. "The way he makes movies is so secretive, I'm not sure what the official status of that is," Eisenberg says. "But, yes, I am aware of it." Speaking of Page, the star of Juno, it turns out there is at least one identifiable upside to Eisenberg's new-found profile: he doesn't get mistaken for Michael Cera so much as he once did. "I guess, you know, I was in something that became part of the popular consciousness. So now," he adds, gnomically, "people mistake me for myself."
He is, he insists, less anxious than he once was. "I know some amazing actors who are not mortified every moment of the day," he says, hopefully, "so my feeling is that maybe you don't have to be a wreck to be good." But does he ever worry that successful therapy, or just growing older, might cause his anxieties to subside to such a point that he's no longer a virtuoso of on-screen awkwardness, too serene and comfortable with himself to portray discomfort and isolation so well? A flicker of a grin: "My therapist says I'm never going to get to that point, so I don't think it's going to be a problem." Source: www.guardian.co.uk
