Are Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Friends?

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg were the deal in the aughts! Truly, a great duo can become anything – and Kristen and Jesse could morph into anything! One of the best film duos starred in Adventureland in 2009 and confirmed their chemistry in American Ultra in 2015.

Kristen and Jesse should have done all their films together. And sincerely, it’s a shame they don’t. But what happened? Read on to find out more about their relationship on the small and big screens and whether they are friends!

Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg

Kristen and Jesse first met on the set of Adventureland in 2009 while they were filming. Eisenberg has spoken about how Stewart was “the most beautiful thing I’d ever seen.” The two hit it off and started dating shortly after.

The couple starred together in American Ultra in 2015 but broke up a few months later. In an interview with Vulture, Eisenberg revealed that the two “weren’t getting along” and that their relationship had run its course.

Stewart has spoken about her breakup with Eisenberg, telling Harper’s Bazaar UK in 2016, “I was like, ‘I’m so sorry, I can’t do this. I can’t be who you want me to be. I can’t be who you think I am. And it hurts, and it’s painful.”

Can the two actors be considered friends if they broke up? Some might say that Stewart still gets along with her exes. She was seen hanging out with Stella Maxwell after she and Robert Pattinson ended their engagement in 2017.

The Chemistry

You’ve all seen the magical relationship between the two actors on stage. The Adventureland interviewers asked Stewart how it was working with Eisenberg, to which she replied “I’m so in love with him it’s crazy.”

Stewart elaborated on their chemistry during an interview with MTV News.

“He makes me laugh harder than anybody,” Stewart said of Eisenberg. “He’s legitimately one of the funniest people I’ve ever met in my life. He’s also one of the most charming.”

The two have great on-screen chemistry, but their relationship didn’t work out in real life. Eisenberg has spoken about how Stewart is “an incredibly private person” and that he found it difficult to understand her need for privacy.

When they work together, Eisenberg and Stewart seamlessly fall into character. In an interview with MTV News, Stewart recalled a scene from American Ultra where Eisenberg had to slap her.

“He was so gentle,” Stewart said of Eisenberg’s slapping performance. “I was like, ‘You hit me too hard! You didn’t even hit me that hard!’ And he was like, ‘What?’ And I was like, ‘I don’t know. It just didn’t feel real.'”

This even translated to their personal relationships. They were just so comfortable around each other and were always a joy to watch. Eisenberg and Stewart blended just like peanut butter and jelly!

Their Interaction Off Set

When interacting off stage, Stewart and Eisenberg were still the same. Their ability to mesh well together off-screen was a true testament to their on-screen chemistry.

The two were also really comfortable around each other and it shows in photos from offset! Stewart even said that she had gotten “used” to Eisenberg’s face during an interview with Elle magazine back in 2014.

So What Happened

The pain from the Adventureland set has dissipated over the years but it doesn’t look like there will ever be a reunion between Stewart and Eisenberg.

It’s a shame because their relationship on the small and big screens was amazing to watch. Hopefully, they can remain friends despite their breakup!

The Relationship Problems

While Stewart and Eisenberg were dating, they had their share of problems. In 2012, Stewart was caught cheating on Eisenberg with her Snow White and the Huntsman director Rupert Sanders.

Eisenberg didn’t take the news well. He was ” really angry” and “felt betrayed” by Stewart, according to People magazine. The two briefly split but got back together a few months later.

Are Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg Friends?

It’s hard to say after their messy breakup. But, the two actors seem to be civil with each other and still have a good relationship. We’ll just have to wait and see if they ever work together again!

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter in 2017, Stewart said of working with Eisenberg again, “He’s a very smart guy, and that’s always fun to work with.”

We can only hope that the two mend their issues and give us more greatness on the screen!
