In Hitch, Will Smith's character has all the answers—until he meets Sara, played by Miami-born bombshell Eva Mendes. Eva was a typical college student when a neighbor snapped her photo and showed it to a Hollywood agent. Her breakout role was as Denzel Washington's girlfriend in Training Day. Today, she's one of the hottest new actresses in demand.

As uncomfortable as Will and Kevin's kissing scene was, Eva and Will might have had an even tougher time. Eva says was so nervous before the shoot that she had to have her favorite comfort food: a tuna fish sandwich with extra onions and Doritos smashed inside. She was chowing down on her "stank breath special" when Will walked by and did a triple-take. A mortified Eva immediately swallowed a box of Altoids.

"I never asked you," Eva says to Will on the show, "How was it?"

"It was absolutely wonderful," replies "Dr. Smooth."
