In today’s latest celeb news, Eva Mendes confesses that she had to man up to deal with the pranks on the set of The Other Guys, a comedy in which she stars as Will Ferrell’s wife. “I learned early on that you’ve got to just be more than a boy to hang with the boys,” she told Parade.com.
The fashion star of Calvin Klein’s underwear ads says she was thrilled to be cast as Ferrell’s leading lady, because Anchorman is her favorite movie, saying, “All I did was quote ‘Anchorman’ on a daily basis. So it was a dream come true in a sense.”
The movie also stars Mark Wahlberg, who plays a police detective, and according to Mendes, often steals the scene with his straight guy persona.
