Eva Longoria: I am not a sex symbol

Eva Longoria

Eva Longoria thinks being labelled a sex symbol is largely “unfair”.

The former Desperate Housewives actress is also a philanthropist, restaurateur and she is involved behind the scenes in Hollywood as a producer.

Although Eva considered by many as one of the sexiest women alive, she doesn’t particularly embrace her dreamboat status.

“I never thought of myself as a sex symbol. I just do the cover of magazines,” she revealed in the March 2014 edition of Prestige Hong Kong magazine.

“I think it’s really unfair men or people in the world think you can’t be both – you can’t be a sex symbol and a serious businessperson. Who says I can’t be both? Who says I can’t do the cover of Maxim and run a production company? Women are complex. Women are beautiful and intellectual and spiritual and social and entrepreneurial. They’re everything. And I think I’m a great example of that.”

Eva turned 39 years old on March 15 and she celebrated her birthday with loved ones at a lavish bash hosted by Ocean Drive magazine in Miami.

The star is elated with how life is turning out at the moment, but she refuses to address questions about her personal affairs.

“You can ask, but I won’t answer,” she said.

“But my social life is amazing. Lots of friends and things going on all the time. I’m at a very happy place in my life right now, both personally and professionally.”
