Jesse Eisenberg said meeting his “Fleshman Is in Trouble” costar Claire Danes The first time was the “greatest day” of her life, even though she can’t remember the moment.

Eisenberg and Danes star in the Hulu miniseries as a divorced couple. While this is the first time they have worked together, Eisenberg said “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” on Wednesday that they had met 15 years before working with each other.

“She has no memory of it, which is what I generally impress upon people, but especially in this case,” joked Eisenberg.

“The Social Network” star recalled that when he was dating his current wife, Anna Strout, he accompanied her to a benefit where he bumped into Dane.

“I got really high because I knew it was going to be boring,” Eisenberg recalled. “And I broke up with her there and I ended up talking to this woman. We went to the same high school and she said she was an actress, and she went to Yale. And I was just thinking, ‘My God He’s like the nicest person I’ve ever met in my life.’ And I told her.”

The 39-year-old actor added: “And then, I turned to my wife, and I said, ‘Honey, I think I just met my soulmate. I met this amazing woman.’ And I pointed to the woman I wanted to be my life partner, and Anna, my wife, she said, ‘That’s Claire Danes, you idiot. Good luck.'”

Eisenberg clarified that “things were going well” with his then-girlfriend, and the pair eventually married in 2017.

“You’re happily married now. And after all these years, here you are working with Claire Danes,” Fallon said.

Eisenberg then replied: “Yeah, but he had no memory of the greatest day of my life.”
