London: `Social Network` actor Jesse Eisenberg believes that one needs to be intelligent to make "dumb comedies".
"You actually have to be pretty smart to do dumb comedies well. There`s a genius involved with comedy - when it`s good - that even the best dramatist could never even hope to understand," contactmusic.com quoted the 27-year-old as saying.
"And I`m happy to give myself over to people like the director Rueben Fleischer when it comes to such comedy. Audiences get it, and that`s the most important thing. Right?" he added.
