Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg are making the rounds promoting their new film, American Ultra (out August 21), which means a lot of press interviews. To prep, the two stars interviewed each other for a Funny or Die video — only it seems the questions they're each used to receiving have been swapped. The switch finds Eisenberg fielding personal questions about his body, and Stewart mulling over her favorite sports team. A flustered Eisenberg quickly realizes that it's not fun to be an actress in the press junket chair.
Stewart and Eisenberg tackle the issue with humor, but this is far from the first attempt by stars to point out the sexism that often runs rampant in press interviews. Scarlett Johansson pointed out how inappropriate it was when an interviewer asked her if she wore underwear under her Black Widow costume. Anne Hathaway called out an interviewer's endless line of questions about her diet and exercise regime. Just last week, Kate Mara had to deal with a broadcaster talking about her "fine toes." Now the question remains, how many times do interviewers have to be checked and satarized before they stop asking sexist questions?
