Eisenberg kind of sounds the same as Zuckerberg. Was that why he was the Mark Zuckerberg in The Social Network (2010)? More than the name, Jesse quite looks like Mark with his curly light brown hair, pale coloured skin and “inquisitive” eyes.
The fast-talking star has starred in several roles and is quite an exceptional actor. Not all Hollywood celebrities were born with a silver spoon. Jesse Eisenberg (born October 5, 1983) is one of the middle class raised actors. He comes from quite a humble beginning and learnt discipline at a young age. Let’s take a look at the other Eisenbergs…
Amy Eisenberg (mother)
For twenty years, Amy Eisenberg nee Fishman was a professional clown named Bonabini. Back in 1980s and 1990s, she performed at children’s birthday parties in their New Brunswick hometown. Amy was also a choreographer for a Catholic High School while she was Bonabini. All of these just go to show how ordinary Jesse’s background was.
In fact, Jesse says his mother’s former profession had a big impact on his acting career. When Amy was a clown, she would wake up early and begin to warm up her voice and tune her guitar; rehearsing diligently for her performances. It taught Jesse that one could take a thing seemingly little as that seriously. Isn’t it funny that Jesse got his career discipline form Bonabini!
Amy Eisenberg now teaches cross cultural sensitivity in hospitals.
Barry Eisenberg (father)
Barry is Jewish and brought up his family in the Jewish way. At first he worked as a taxi-cab driver before he owned and worked at his own hospital. Later, Barry taught in a college as a Professor of Sociology.
Kerrу Eisenberg (Kerry Lea) (sister, born to Barry Eisenberg and Amy Eisenberg)
Who knows where the Eisenberg kids got their vegetarian passion from? Maybe their parents were vegetarians? Now Kerrу Lea, she started a children’s theatre troupe that allows kids use their passion for compassion to change the world. Changing the world here means educating people about vegetarianism and animal rights. The name of the theatre troupe is “The Acting Creatively Veg Kids”. Both Eisenberg siblings have also been a part of this movement.
Hallie Kate Eisenberg (sister, born to Barry Eisenberg and Amy Eisenberg)
Date of Birth: August 2, 1992
Zodiac Sign: Leo
Do you remember the little cute girl from the 1990s Pepsi commercial? This young girl is Hallie Kate Eisenberg, sister to actor Jesse Eisenberg. Hallie was named by her parents after Thora Birch’s character in the film All I Want for Christmas (1991).
The pretty Eisenberg vegetarian with long curly hair and iconic dimples made her film debut in 1998 when she casted as the young owner of Paulie the Parrot in the movie Paulie. She acted several movies in the 2000s but took a break in 2010 to attend the American University in Washington D.C. where she graduated from in 2014.
Howie as she is popularly called is known for acting alongside Al Pacino in The Insider (1999), for being Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker (2004), Erika Tancy in How to Eat Fried Worms (2006) among other movie roles. Hallie is undoubtedly the female replica of her celebrity brother Jesse.
