Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg decided to flip the script while on the promo trail for their new film American Ultra, interviewing each other with the dumb questions usually reserved for the other gender. "How did you bulk up for this role?" Eisenberg asks Stewart, who has even more ridiculous questions and requests in store for him -- the ones usually reserved for women.

It's definitely progress that the stars of stoner spy comedy American Ultra have been dressed in gender-neutral, matching jeans, T-shirts, check shirts and shades on the explosive action film poster, but their treatment by the media is usually very different, and very gendered. Perhaps by releasing this parody video, the actors hope to stop journalists with sexist questions in their tracks, before having to endure their boring interview routines.
