Jesse Eisenberg Talks Being The 'Sexiest Geek Alive' & His Love Of Foster Cats On 'Conan' (VIDEO)

It seems that Jesse Eisenberg is constantly being embarrassed. As he told Conan O'Brien last night, he was made fun of for being a geek in high school, and later even after starring in several big Hollywood movies, "Entertainment Weekly" dubbed him the sexiest "geek" alive. To top that, when he goes on Spanish talk shows, all they do is make fun of him in a language he can't understand.

Conan sympathized with the "Social Network" star in the endearing interview below, but Eisenberg doesn't exactly ward off his "geek" status when he reveals his promoted-by-guilt obsession with boarding foster cats. What we gather from this interview is that although he may be a geek, at least he's a charming geek who's interested in making a difference - even if it means letting his tiny NYC apartment be overrun by kitties.
