Conan O'Brien vs. Jesse Eisenberg

Jesse Eisenberg's aw-shucks attitude is nearly indistinguishable from the characters he portrays, but finally someone's called him out on it. Thursday night on Conan O'Brien, the talk show host — himself notoriously self-deprecating — staged a "Self-Efface Off" with the "Social Network" star to determine "which one of us is the most self-effacing person in show business."

Eisenberg then proceeded to produce such self-hating gems such as women only liked him because "I seem like the kind of guy who would never leave them" and ended the skit with "I'm sorry, I wasn't listening, I was too busy thinking about how much I hate the shape of my own face."
