Anna Strout is Jesse Eisenberg’s wife. They share a son and have been together most of their lives, but the actor briefly dated his “The Double” co-star Mia Wasikowska.


While Eisenberg is one of the most famous Hollywood stars, he’s also one of the most secretive. The details of his personal life and dating history are scarce, to say the least.

Anna Strout, who has worked as an assistant in films like “Don’t Say a Word,” “The Emperor’s Club,” and “Fire and Ice: The Winter War of Finland and Russia,” is Eisenberg’s first girlfriend, but she’s not the only one.

The couple reportedly started dating in 2002 but parted ways in 2012 for unknown reasons. Eisenberg confirmed Strout was his first girlfriend in a 2011 interview when he struggled to share relationship advice

Eisenberg pointed out that he’d had “one girlfriend [his] whole life” and had never been on a date with anybody else, so his only advice was, “just be nice.”


In 2013, Eisenberg and fellow actress Mia Wasikowska, who met on the set of “The Double,” became an item. They were spotted together in Toronto kissing at an outside coffee shop. 

Wasikowska and Eisenberg’s relationship was quiet but seemed promising as they were photographed together (and showing some PDA) a few more times.

In November 2014, for example, they were holding hands and kissing at Los Angeles International Airport before a flight. Eisenberg was Wasikowska's first public boyfriend. However, they parted ways around 2015.

When Anna Strout and Jesse Eisenberg’s son, Banner, was born, they didn’t make any announcements. 

Jesse Eisenberg and Anna Strout reconnected later that year when the actor volunteered for four months at an Indiana domestic violence shelter run by Strout’s mother.


During his time there, Eisenberg helped raise enough money to pay off the shelter’s mortgage. While he’s very private, he said in 2011 that those who want to help others are the “the most interesting” people. 

Since Strout’s mom ran the domestic violence shelter for 35 years, it is fair to say that Eisenberg was referring to his then-girlfriend and her family. 


In October 2016, it was reported that Strout was expecting a child. When Anna Strout and Jesse Eisenberg’s son, Banner, was born, they didn’t make any announcements

Banner’s birth was confirmed in April 2017 when Strout and Eisenberg were spotted with their baby in NYC. Nowadays, the couple is married, but there are no details about their wedding. During the pandemic, they volunteered at the domestic violence shelter, too.
