Having a contact list full of celebrity names has its ups and downs, especially if you’re one of those people who is prone de mis-texts.

Eva Mendes found out the hard way. During an appearance on “Conan” on Thursday, the actress explained that she often likes to send inspirational text messages to her friends (am I the only one to wonder what she sends to Ryan Gosling?). One such friend was a playwright named David, to whom she penned (or tapped) the following note: ““You’re a talented writer! Keep at it! You got a big future ahead of you :)”

Unfortunately for Mendes, the text was not sent to David, obscure playwright and close friend, but to Larry David, co-creator of “Seinfeld” and star of “Curb Your Enthusiasm.”

Mendes, mortified, told Conan: “I sent it to Larry David. Larry David! You’re a talented writer? I think you’re onto something? You know, stick with it? Larry David! Are you kidding?”

Uninspired, Larry David never texted back.
