However, Jesse, the ‘Social Network’ actor, said he thought the fact he didn’t know his co-star helped them portray the relationship of the characters in the film.

Jesse: ”There was no rehearsal, but it was fine. ‘I mean, we were not playing long-time friends. Even if we were, we could probably have figured it out. But we were playing people who spent a lot of time figuring each other out and strategizing and being curious about the other person, so it seemed to be effective.”,‎ reports.

Speaking to, Jesse said: ”I thought (he was down-to-earth) too until I worked with him and realized he’s a very hard-working guy. He has more enthusiasm than anyone on set.

”In person, I guess he seems like the kind of guy who I would not think to put 15 hours into something in negative ten-degree weather, because he just seems kind of casual, but when it comes to actually making the movie-he’s still very sweet and funny, a genial guy-but I think he becomes really focused.”
