American actress Eva Mendes has been hired by Magnum ice-cream as its new ‘pleasure ambassador’. In what can only be described as ‘a good move’, Mendes is stepping into the expensive shoes of Desperate Housewives actress Eva Longoria who was sick and tired of eating Magnums because they gave her a constant brain freeze.

Luckily for Magnum, it won’t even have to learn any new words to be on first-name terms with their new star who was 35th in 2008’s 100 Sexiest Women in the World poll, slipping down 24 places from her career validating 11th place finish in 2007. Outraged? Can’t believe it? Want to put the world to rights? VOTE HERE.

If you feel like you’re being short-changed by Magnum because all they’re really doing is swapping one Eva for another, stick up for Longoria here. Or go and buy a Calippo. That’ll show ‘em.
