As a child, Eva dreamed of becoming a model, but her height, 5 foot 2 inches, was deemed too short by industry standards. During an interview, she once said that she was not pretty as a child and that people used to call her the ugly duckling. Despite these criticisms and setbacks, she remained stoic, and after graduating from school, Eva participated in a talent contest. A theatrical agent noticed her, and from here, her journey to becoming an international star began.
Eva landed roles in several iconic television series, starting with The Bold and the Beautiful and then The Young and the Restless, where she played the role of Isabella. Her portrayal of Isabella won her the ALMA award.
By now, Eva was a household name. After her time on The Young and the Restless, Eva played Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives’ comedy series. For her excellent performance as Gabrielle, she received three nominations for the Golden Globe Award.
In addition to acting, Eva is also passionate about education, and her success as an actress provided her with the resources she needed to found The Eva Longoria Foundation and Eva’s Heroes. Eva aims to provide education to those who otherwise would not have access to it through this endeavor.
She also completed her master’s in Chicano studies, with her thesis on “Success STEMS from Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM career.”
Despite once being called an ugly duckling, Eva has featured on the cover page of several international fashion magazines, including Harper’s Bazaar and Vogue. In 2008, she was ranked 14th in a poll of the “Sexiest Women of 2008.” Not so ugly, after all, it seems.
