She may have the beauty and the fame to get into any party, but when it comes to President-Elect Barack Obama’s inauguration festivities, actress Eva Mendes got the boot!
“Hottest ticket party in town… I thought I had some pull – I usually do, and I’ve been shut down,” The Spirit star told Access Hollywood. “It’s the hardest party to get into.”
Although Mendes says she’s “still working on” getting in, she understands: “They don’t want to make [it] a celebrity studded event because I understand this in an extremely crucial time in our history and in our world right now.”
