Eva Longoria always looks hot and sporting only a white tank top, the Latina bombshell sizzles as she graces the cover “Maxim’s” January/February issue, in which she is named “Woman of The Year.”
“It’s especially awesome after how long it’s been since my first cover [in 2005],” Longoria told the magazine.
The 38-year-old has become well-known for her screen roles, but has truly become a source of inspiration and an icon in the Latino community for her work as a producer, businesswoman and philanthropist. “Maxim” took notice.
“When someone sees the cover of this issue, they’re going to say, ‘Que rico!’”
“I’ve had a beautiful relationship with ‘Maxim’ over all these years,” the former “Desperate Housewives” actress said. “When someone sees the cover of this issue, they’re going to say, ‘Que rico!’”
The unbelievably busy Longoria had just presented her thesis for a master’s degree in Chicano studies at Cal State Northridge when the interview with the magazine happened.
“I was like, ‘My brain can’t jump that fast from a ‘Maxim’ interview to a thesis!’” she said, explaining why she had to reschedule the interview. “Back in high school I really was the chameleon, too. I got along with the honors math club, then I would go to cheerleading practice, and then I was a band geek as well.”
So what does Longoria do to unwind? She hits the kitchen.
“One thing people are usually surprised about when they get to know me is how domestic I am,” she told the magazine. “So when you see the sexy ‘Maxim’ cover and then you put it against me in an apron with flour in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image.”
The issue hits the stands Jan. 17.
