This kills me.

Ricky Gervais turned down Eva Mendes’s (I’m so so ashamed to not be 100% sure if that comma usage is correct!) pleas to appear on his show Extras.  Miss Mendes is a very pretty lady.

And then Ricky Gervais said no. To Eva Mendes.

She subsequently lamented to the press

“It’s one of my favourite shows ever and they turned me down. I was like, guys, you don’t understand I am quite a big deal in the States, and I don’t go on TV shows, but I really want to go on your show.”

First of all: Wow. Second of all: What constitues being “quite a big deal?” Ghost Rider?All About the Benjamins? 2 Fast 2 Furious?

Third of all, GIRL, Julia Roberts did Law & Order. Clooney started on ER. Don’t go acting like you’re too good for TV.
