Mena Suvari, the lovely and pretty and wholesome object of our affections in two films with “American” in the title (Pie and Beauty, not History X, obviously), wants to take you to a Caribbean island.

"That sounds pretty bloody good", you're probably thinking. "Yeah, I'd be well up for that."

But wait. There's more.

She wants you to bring a friend. And, when you're on that Caribbean island, she wants you to partake in lots of fun challenges and games with the ultimate goal of finding a treasure chest containing $15,000, which you'll get to spend on whatever the hell you please.

It'll be better hidden than that, we imagine

Right now, your brain is probably screaming: "Wow, that sounds like pretty much the best thing ever. I can't think of any way that could possibly be any more appealing."

Well shush, brain, because it's about to.

The island isn't just any old Caribbean island. It's the Captain Morgan's Island, which means there'll be plenty of rum and Captain Morgan's gorgeous female accomplices, the Morganettes.

If this sounds like something you can get on board with ("get on board" - get it? 'coz it's buccaneers and treasure and all that - LOL), find out how to get involved here.

In the meantime, we tracked down Mena for a lovely chinwag over a yo ho ho and a bottle of rum.

Hey, Mena. Even though you’ll get to hang out on a Caribbean island with some of our lovely readers, is there a part of you that wishes you could compete in the challenges yourself?
You know what? You nailed it on the head, because that’s exactly what I was thinking. The more I get involved in this, the more I think it should be me that's competing!  I actually know for sure that when I'm there I'll be visualizing myself doing the challenges.

D'you think you'd win?
Oh yeah, for sure! I don't question that. I know for sure.

Pretty confident...
That’s my nature, I’m very competitive. I used to play a lot of poker. I did the Celebrity World Poker Tournament and won it.

Nice. Any tips?
You've got to have a good poker face. People always say they can't read me. I have this like stone face. But, as a woman, there's only so many times you can pretend like you don't really know how to play the game and then win the big pot!

Finally, the big question: if you could be any animal, what would you be?
A lion, for sure. I've got a lion tattoo on the back of my neck. It's the symbol of strength and courage.

You know what they say about big keys? They're incredibly cumbersome and impractical

Well there you go.
