Jesse Eisenberg has admitted he "feels bad" for some actors.

The '30 Minutes or Less' star struggled to see the point of a career in film five years ago, having had parts taken from him and dealing with bad reviews of good performances , and Jesse admits he worries about other actors who have not had any big successes.

He said: "You do movies that you really believe in and they get terrible reviews and open in tiny theatres.

"I feel bad for the people involved because for me, I have other movies that year, but for some of them that might be their only movie."

The 29-year-old actor also revealed he doesn't like going to the cinema and watches films to fuel his narcissism.

He said: "I don't really like movies unless they're about people like me, about their cultures and neuroses and self-indulgence and self-loathing.

"So I guess, in a way, movies are just a way to further my own narcissism."
