    How did you NOT get to do a story with Eva Mendes?

    Conflict of interest. Too close of a personal relationship.

    Jones says the interviews with celebrities are like torture -- or maybe Tom Junod said that and Jones repeated it, I'm not sure.

    In any event, such a story would've gotten in the way of Jones being passed out drunk in the back of McCain's bus.

    Jones is sweating his balls off in New Hampshire covering McCain.
    At least, I think that what he's doing.

    Yeah, I can see where staring at Eva Mendes could be... no. No, I can't. Mendes gets three thumbs up.

    That story's also from 2005.

    Maybe they do that every time you google "Eva Mendes topless"
  9. Anyone see the photos of Mendes AP sent a couple weeks ago? :eek:

    She's doing one of those PETA ads, saying "I'd rather be naked than wear fur" or something like that.

    The photo was of her standing in front of a giant photo of the ad. The caption said "Eds: Note nudity"

    Believe me, I did.

    No. I would get a lot more emails that way.. sadly, it was only a subscriber notice.
