‘The Social Network’ star also reveals his relationship with Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg!

Jesse Eisenberg is one of the hottest young actors around, thanks to a commanding role in 2010’s The Social Network that earned him an Oscar nod. But he’s still a novice at the red carpet scene, and was coached by his costar Justin Timberlake on how to behave at the Feb. 27 award ceremony.

“Justin told me to go on time because if you go late, it looks bad,” Jesse told us at the LA Confidential party hosted by Bing at Latitude 33 on Saturday night.

And even though he is one of Hollywood’s hottest nerd-chic bachelors, Jesse revealed he is bringing his mother as his date to the ceremony!

Although Jesse doesn’t have any new movies on the horizon, thanks to a busy awards season just now coming to an end, he also hasn’t had time to catch up with his frenemy Mark Zuckerberg, the Facebook creator who Jesse portrayed in the film and later acted with on Saturday Night Live.

“I assume he is very busy. He doesn’t have [time] to talk to a movie actor,” Jesse said.

With a career this hyped, we’re sure this will not be Jesse’s last Oscar ceremony
