UPDATE: Eisenberg has clarified his comment, saying, "Maybe on some cellular memory level, that's the only thing that seems like an equivalent social experience. Even if they're saying nice things, just being shouted at by thousands of people, it's horrifying. I of course was using hyperbole to describe the sensory overload I experienced. I sometimes do employ that. I'm a normal person who has normal sensory experiences, so Comic-Con was very overwhelming for me. That said, it was really an honor to be on that end of such jubilation. That people are excited about it in that way is unheard of and thrilling."

Original post follows below:

Get your cringe face ready, you're gonna need it for this one.

When asked about his experience at San Diego Comic Con, Jesse Eisenberg said attending was akin to genocide:

"It is like being screamed at by thousands of people. I don't know what the experience is throughout history, probably some kind of genocide. I can't think of anything that's equivalent."



Attending Comic Con is certainly hard on celebrities; it can't be easy being screamed at and accosted by fans, but genocide? What?

This isn't the first time Eisenberg has made headlines for his behavior in interviews, either. In 2013 he developed a reputation as a jerk after being insufferably rude in an interview for the film Now You See Me:



Cringe, cringe everywhere.

SDCC has given us a glimpse at Mike Colter and Krysten Ritter as Luke Cage and Jessica Jones in the Netflix series Jessica Jones, and it's on fire! Literally. Luke Cage has unbreakable skin, so he'll be fine.

Kevin Doyle walked to Comic Con this year, all the way from his home in Petaluma, CA which is over 500 miles north of San Diego. To give you an idea, take a look at the Google Map:



Not only did Kevin walk around 600 miles to SDCC, he did it in full Stormtrooper armor:




He made this journey for his wife, Eileen who tragically passed from pancreatic cancer in 2012 at the age of 45. For Kevin, this walk is a way to celebrate and mourn the loss of his wife, keep a promise and raise money for a charity he's created in her honor. Called Eileen's Little Angels, the charity provides gifts to children going through chemotherapy.

Kevin officially finished his journey Thursday, July 9th, but you can always help out his cause by donating here.

Remember when you lived in blissful ignorance and you thought there was only one Hunger Games movie left? Well, that probably isn't the case. In the same interview with Conan O'Brien where JLaw adorably sang Cher's "Believe" (see video above), Josh Hutcherson pulled a Peeta and accidentally revealed that there may be more Hunger Games films. 

Conan asked the stars if there were any plans for a prequel or sequel to the series, to which Josh Hutcherson replied "there is. I’m sorry, I can’t say that. We’ll see what happens." Get it together, Peeta! This is why no one likes you. Learn to keep a secret!

Meanwhile, Conan provided JLaw with a swear jar and challenged her to say as many swears for charity as she could in 30 seconds. They were forced to bleep her swears for TV, but it seems like she gets pretty creative with her foul mouth:

For the more than 20 years he's been on television, Conan O'brien sure knows how to make an entrance. And this year's San Diego Comic Con is no different.

You can always count on Conan to do two things: Make fun of himself and roll with the times. He and Andy Richter pick the best and most self-deflating way to get from LA to San Diego — the Doof Wagon from Mad Max: Fury Road.

Conan may not have as rich a back story as the real Doof Warrior but there's been plenty of ways for him to learn how to get his Doof on ever since the movie's May release.

As he's done for the past couple of years, Conan will film his show from sweaty, steamy, media petri dish that is SDCC.

Normally, we're used to seeing the Magic Mike side of Channing Tatum, and no one's complaining.



But it's easy to forget that he's also a good guy. While promoting his passion project at Comic-Con, a solo superhero flick about Gambit, the 21 Jump Street star rushed to help veteran nerd hero, Stan Lee off the stage after taking an awesome selfie. 



Way to go Channing, those Southern manners are going to come in handy when you start shooting Gambit.

Conan O'brien is on a post-Comic Con streak, here. Especially since he was able to gain access to George R. R. Martin's home camera system. 

And lo, we all learn what keeps Mr. Martin busy while his characters remain in some sort of literary limbo.

That trampoline does look fun, though.
