Gervais Turned Down Mendes
Eva Mendes is desperate to land a role on Ricky Gervais' Extras - after she was turned down for a cameo on the hit TV show.
The brunette beauty is a big fan of the comedy series, which features big celebrity guest stars in each episode - and was disappointed after the show bosses denied her a role.
And now she is determined to appear on the sitcom, which is written by and stars Gervais as a struggling actor.
When asked if she has any unfulfilled ambitions, she responds: "Yes, to appear in an episode of Ricky Gervais' show Extras.
"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.
"I love Ricky Gervais, I love British humour - it's my kind of humour, but they won't have me."
