Eva Mendes to launch bedding line (!), would love to work with Cameron Diaz and appear on Extras

While “designing” clothes and fragrances is pretty common among celebrities these days, sexy actress Eva Mendes (Cleaner) is set to become perhaps the first with a line of bedsheets and pillowcases, something she’s apparently wanted to do for a long time.

“I’m a big interior design fan and architecture buff, that’s one of my passions. If I wasn’t an actress, I’d be an interior designer. I’m not smart enough to be an architect. We’re starting off with bedding and we’re seeing how the public responds to it… It’s very very affordable. I love sleeping… If there was an Olympics for it, I’d take the gold. I’m Cuban; we love to sleep.”

Okaaay…. Named “Vida”, the line will be available in Macy’s stores by the end of the month.

In related news, the actress has revealed she is desperate to star in a movie with Cameron Diaz (What Happens In Vegas), as the two are best friends, along with Lucy Liu (Rise). Sign me up for the male lead and I’m so there! The two did appear together in two episodes of Diaz’s short-lived eco reality show Trippin’.

“I am dying to work with Cameron. She is just a really good person and I would love, love, love to work with her.”

Maybe Diaz can land her a part in Shrek Goes Fourth?

Finally the poor girl can’t get a clue and is still trying to guest star in Ricky Gervais’ hit show Extras, despite being turned down. Her argument? She’s really famous in the US apparently.

“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.”

Of course this isn’t surprising as Eva Mendes’ ego is bigger than Russia (ever heard of that Starbucks story?).

You can next catch Mendes in The Women, which premieres in the US and the UK on September 12th.

Ghost Town team gets spooked (publicity stunt anyone?)

Update: Turns out the whole story is fabricated, or so says Ricky Gervais because he doesn’t want you to find out he pissed his thong when Marilyn Monroe’s ghost tried to give him a lapdance

Apparently prankish ghosts had the time of their undead lives scaring the hell out of movie types trying to throw a press junket at the famous Los Angeles haunted Roosevelt Hotel.

“We wanted the junkets at the Roosevelt because of its ghostly reputation. But we got so much more than we bargained for. A photoshoot we prepared was wrecked and two runners say they saw the figure of a lady in the full-length mirror.

“The final straw came when a production assistant stayed in the room earmarked for Ricky and claimed to have been freezing cold on the hottest day of the year. He said he woke up with someone whistling in his ear, even though he was alone, then heard a giggle before being pushed out of bed.”

Now I’m not saying this didn’t happen and I do believe in that kind of stuff, but it’s kind of convenient how supernatural beings are always willing to give films dealing about them a little publicity (anyone remember how Ghost Whisperer star Jennifer Love Hewitt senses spirits ogling her in the shower?).

Ghost Town, a romantic comedy about a man who dies, gets revived and now has the ability to see ghosts who all want something from him, stars British comedian Ricky Gervais (Stardust), Téa Leoni (You Kill Me) and Greg Kinnear (Baby Mama). The film, which will premiere at this year’s Toronto Film Festival, was directed by superstar screenwriter David Koepp (Secret Window), who penned the script with John Kamps (The Borrowers).
