Eva Longoria has told the UK edition of OK! Magazine that it is her mother who inspired her to work hard and achieve.
“Everybody says, ‘You do so much and you work so hard’, but actually I think I’m not doing enough because I’ve watched my mother growing up and she was like a superwoman. I always think, if she can do it, I have to do it too,” the actress told OK!
Eva, who was voted Hollywood Reporter’s Philanthropist of the Year in 2009, is well known for her range of charity work, particularly for Unicef and the Hispanic community. She donated a house to one of the victims of Hurricane Katrina through her work with Oprah Winfrey.
Eva, who is currently dating Eduard Cruz, also admitted to being a “hopeless romantic”.
“What makes me feel romantic is humour. I like someone who makes me laugh.”
