Enrique Iglesias was on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Thursday where he performed ‘Escape’ and spoke briefly with Jay Leno afterwards. Enrique gave his now standard line that he isn’t dating Anna Kournikova, but that he’d love to date her. Before he could speak though, he needed a drink of water, but most of it dribbled into his lap which got a big giggle from the crowd. Read on for a transcript.

Upon a Time In Mexico.” It’s a cool movie.
Jay: Do you like the acting? Is it fun?
Enrique: It was fun. It was a lot of fun. It took a lot of time to wake
up every single day at 5:00 in the morning, which kills me.

to be tough. Do you want to do more acting?
