Cameron Diaz is hoping her pal Eva Mendes never sees her promotional interviews for new MTV travel show TRIPPIN' - because she'll realise the CHARLIE'S ANGELS star lied to her about toilet spiders in Nepal.

The HITCH star joined Diaz for one episode of the show, but only agreed to go to Nepal with the CHARLIE'S ANGELS star if she accepted the role of spider watcher.

Mendes was so terrified of spiders, she'd wake Diaz up in the middle of the night and ask her to check out the toilet for creepy crawlies before she relieved herself.

Diaz says, "She couldn't get up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom because she was afraid she'd run into a spider. She can't even see a spider."

But Diaz admits she wasn't completely honest with her friend: "There's bamboo on the wall and there's about 10 spiders on the wall and I'm like `Oh God.' I'm hitting the wall... and she's like, `What's going on in there?' and I'm like, `Nothing.' She's like, `Is there spiders in there?' and I'm like, No.'

"All the spiders are running back behind the bamboo. I never told her... the whole time I made her think there were no spiders, meanwhile, like, inches away from her were like 10 huge spiders.

"I was being a friend at the time. She had to pee."
