“The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg and Andrew Garfield answered questions together on the red carpet at the National Board of Review Awards earlier this week, and they were delightful while doing so. Here’s some solid banter just about what kind of phones they have. “I send everything by carrier pigeon,” Eisenberg told us. “But it’s Verizon. Verizon carrier pigeon. And what is the deal with Verizon carrier pigeon service? Like, I take my carrier pigeon down to the subway, and it’s just gone. Off the map. [Laughs.]” “It goes and hangs out with its friends, the other pigeons,” Garfield chimed in. “There are pigeons in the subway, right?” Eisenberg: “Right.”—nymag.com (via acatnamedsolitude)
We know Mark Zuckerberg didn’t cooperate but did you ever meet Eduardo Saverin, the character played by Andrew Garfield?
Aaron Sorkin:Once Eduardo signed that non-disclosure agreement after his settlement, he disappeared off the face of the earth. We don’t know exactly how much he received, but it’s in the hundreds of millions. And it will probably go over a billion because he also does now own a lot of Facebook stock. But on October 1st, the movie opened and that’s the day I met Eduardo. I got a phone call from our producer Scott Rudin that a representative for Eduardo had contacted him late at night. He wanted to see the movie. So we set up a private screening for him in New York right before Lady Gaga’s private screening. It’s true. I went to meet him when the movie was over and you could have performed surgery on him without anesthesia at that point in time. I gotta say, he was a deer in the headlights, which is an understatement. He did certainly expect to like the movie a lot, but you could tell in his face that he had just relived the thing. It’s an unreasonable experience that hardly anybody, including myself, knows what it’s like to have a chapter from your life suddenly written, directed, lit, shot, and performed by actors. That was the first and only time I met Eduardo.
