Eva Longoria wasn’t always the mean girl on Wisteria Lane!
Born on March 15, 1975 to Enrique Longoria Jr. and Ella Eva Mireles, Longoria was the youngest of four girls. Raised in the Lone Star State, Eva went on to graduate with a Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology at Texas A&M University – but Eva clearly wasn’t just brains! In 1998 she was crowned Miss Corpus Christi, USA, and shortly after decided to move to Los Angeles and take a stab at acting.
Early gigs including guest star roles on Beverly Hills, 90210 and General Hospital, but it was her role on The Young and the Restless that really thrust her into the limelight.
In 2004, after divorcing her first husband, Tyler Christopher, she became an international star when she landed the role as Gabrielle Solis on Desperate Housewives, which has led to many cosmetic contracts, brand endorsement deals and movie roles.
Eva is currently dating on-again-off-again boyfriend Eduardo Cruz after divorcing NBA star Tony Parker in 2011, and has most recently been hitting up the Cannes Film Festival in one gorgeous gown after the next.
