"It’s no wonder the [Oscar nominees’] luncheon continues to be such a popular attraction on the awards season calendar, with all the stars at their relaxed, affable best. Little moments of their humanity emerge one after another — like Best Actor nominee Jesse Eisenberg getting up from his seat to shake hands with a waiter, look him in the eye and say thanks."
Jesse: When the mohel came to my house when I was a baby, my dad got into a fight with him because my dad gave him bad directions. That is not the man you want to get into a fight with your father right before he has to do that [circumcision].
Interviewer: So he came in angry.
Jesse: Dad, any other person…fight with any person. Not the mohel.
Interviewer: I hope it worked out okay for everybody in the end.
