Eva Longoria - Quotes
"God blessed me with some great, unique features-some beautiful, in my eyes, and some not so beautiful. But I think we are all created this way for a reason, so I have no desire to tamper with that".
I find it a turnoff whenever men aren't into some kind of sport. And, no, video games don't count. I dated a guy who was into video games, and I wanted to shoot myself.
"I hope you all can't see my underwear through this dress!"
"I think what destroys Hollywood marriages is our work schedule, not so much infidelity".
"My acting is still being recognized for the fact that I wasn't nominated".
"The pinnacle for me was being on Oprah!"
"There's something very sexy about being submissive. Because your guard is down, you have to totally surrender to something like that".
"To be with the same person for the rest of your life just sounds so drab".
"You can't have a relationship when you're shooting a 14-hour day and your husband is shooting a 14-hour day in the same city. It's a time thing and it's a together thing".
"I grew up as an ugly duckling. They used to call me prieta fea (ugly dark one), because I was the only one of my family's four girls with dark hair, dark eyes, and dark skin. Growing up I was the ugly one, because I was the odd one."
"As soon as I read the script I knew it was pretty special. The creator of the show asked what I thought of the writing as a whole. I told him I had no idea because I'd only read my part. He laughed and told me I'd got the job. He thought my answer was completely Gabrielle" (On her role in Desperate Housewives)
"I didn't really blossom until my mid teens and by that time I had to work on my personality to make people like me. I found it easy to make people laugh and I was always pretty popular"
"I don't agree with all the boundaries we put on everything. Women are forever discounting men for all sorts of silly reasons - too old, too young, wrong haircut. Give the guy a chance and he may surprise you. I've definitely been pleasantly surprised by my choices and I've always had plenty of choice."
