Last Call with Carson Daly re-ran their interview with Shannon Elizabeth who talked a bit about her video with Enrique Iglesias. Shannon denied anything went on and insisted that Enrique was very shy, though they became friends the day after shooting. Shannon may have won some points with Enrique fans and Anna Kournikova haters when she later joked, “You know, I think — I think every hot chick out there who wants to make money should just pick up a racket and stand on the court and grunt a lot. They don’t even have to try.” Read on for the portion of the transcript focused on Enrique.

Carson: Why is he always making out with the girls in his videos?
[ Laughter ]
Shannon: Because he pays for ’em and gets to write it and say what happens
