I am frankly surprised there weren't snipers watching me closely during this interview.
I'm guessing Sony just never bothered to read my website, "Terrible Thoughts I've Had About Eva Mendes.com," and thank goodness for that. Even so, she had a dog the size of a small horse by her side during the entire interview, and that's probably for the best. She came across as funny and smart and, yes, insanely gorgeous, a welcome addition to the sausage party that was the rest of "The Other Guys" press day.
Drew: It’s funny... I’ve heard a couple of people talking, and it seems like the response has been fantastic to the picture. I’ve heard a couple of people say, "Oh, my God, I can’t believe Eva Mendes is that funny."
Drew: I’m a fan of "All About the Benjamins," though, so it’s not a surprise. The first thing I saw you in was a comedy.
Eva: Nice. That was one of my first things ever. That was like my first year acting basically.
Drew: So this feels like, "Ah, good. I knew that and there it is."
Eva: Oh, that’s awesome. I was crazy in "Benjamins."
Drew: I thought not using the sort of comedy ensembles they’ve used in the past and branching out and using people who were really, funny but who aren’t known for it first opens this one up. And whether it’s true or not, I’m starting the campaign online to say that there’s going to be a Best Original Song nomination for 'Pimps Don’t Cry.'
