Everything's Coming Up Eva
April 5, 2005
Itís an Eva Longoria "Extra" exclusive, straight
from an event near and dear to the actressís heart.
Longoria was recently named spokesperson of Padres Contra
el Cancer, or Parents Against Cancer, and the "Desperate
Housewife" was thrilled to speak at the event.
"Walking out of here tonight, a young man I visited
at the hospital told me he was cancer free," Longoria
related to us. "And that is the greatest reward."
Only "Extra" was with Eva backstage for her
big night, where we were able to dish about everything
from dating to dieting, and even the much-talked-about
Vanity Fair cover shoot that had Eva frustrated because
-- believe it or not -- she thought she looked fat.
"We were hungry but we had to shoot and we hadn't
eaten all day," she told us. "I had to suck
my stomach in for five hours. That's why they put me
in black. I need to work out!"
And from desperately frustrating shoots to the desperately
entertaining "Housewives," Eva gave us the
scoop on what she knows, or doesnít know, about her
characterís future on the ABC hit. "The birth-control
mix up hasn't been played out yet," she said. "But
we are so in the dark; now in the scripts it says, ëmystery
scene,í and then it has some scenes, then ëmystery scene.í"
But Eva will be getting a nice diversion come May when
she begins shooting a movie with Michael Douglas called
"The Sentinel." "Iím a secret service
agent," Eva revealed. "And Iím in no lingerie,
no bras and panties and no kissing scenes."
Meanwhile, Longoria cleared up one more rumor about
her dating life. "I am not dating the world,"
Got it Eva, we just wonít mention that to JC Chasez,
San Antonio Spurs star Tony Parker or Butch Klein from
