“I care about Jesse deeply. I cared about him as soon as I met him because he just looks so…fragile. And vulnerable. And, as soon as you get to know him a little bit, you admire him greatly. He’s…he’s brilliant.”
The Social Network (2010)
Andrew Garfield: Look at the sandwich.
Max Minghella: The sandwich was great. It’s enormous.
Andrew Garfield: I think there’s a moment when Jesse is trying to put it in his pocket…it’s really subtle though…[laughs] He’s trying to figure out a way of taking it out with him.
Armie Hammer: ‘What do I do with this thing?’
Max Minghella: It’s so foreign to him, too. It’s a giant sandwich. He’s like, ‘I don’t even know what this is.’
“Garfield leaves to change into his own, casual clothes before returning to crouch behind the camera as it hovers close to Eisenberg. Just before the camera rolls, he leans toward the Zombieland star and hisses, ‘You’re a fucking dick and you betrayed your best fucking friend. Live with that.’ It’s shocking to hear. It certainly helps with the take. And it is evidence both of Garfield’s professional generosity and Fincher’s nous – for the abuse was at the director’s instruction.” [Empire On-Set Report]
