In the new Rolling Stone, the “Parks and Recreation” star tells the disastrous tale of their encounter at a juice bar:

I didn't recognize him. He said, 'I'm a big fan of the show,' and I said, 'Thank you. Are you an actor?' He kind of smirked and said, 'Yeahhh . . . ' I asked his name, and he said, 'Ryan,' but it didn't click. I was like, 'We worked together, didn't we? You look so familiar.' He kept smirking, like I was messing with him. I got my juice and left.

The deadpan comedian concludes with, “I missed my shot.” Eva Mendes, on the other hand? She appears to be living the dream.
