Eva Longoria Receives Star On Hollywood Walk Of Fame
Actress Eva Longoria was honored with a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday afternoon.
During her speech, she shared that she still feels like a little girl with a big dream. “I feel like I’m still a little girl from Corpus Christi, Texas, who had a really big dream and big hair,” Longoria told the crowd.
As an activist for both women and Latinos in Hollywood, Longoria credits the two communities with the star. “As a woman and as a Latina, I represent a lot of communities, and I want to tell all those communities that this isn’t my star, this is our star.”
Huffman also gave a heartfelt speech prior to Longoria receiving her star. “Here’s why Eva is extraordinary,” Huffman said. “Not because she has fancy friends and has sleepovers at Victoria Beckham’s house and swings from the chandelier at 3 a.m. Not because she’s raised over $40 million for charity. Not because she’s an actress, director, producer, a philanthropist… but because she is kind, and because she is hopeful.”
“She is kind to everyone and she is hopeful for the world,” Huffman continued, “And in these times where cynicism is confused for wisdom, clarity and reason, Eva stands with her feet firmly planted in courage, faith and compassion.”
On the topic of a Desperate Housewives reunion with Huffman, Longoria is on board for a potential reunion.
“I would love a reunion! I always loved Gaby Solis, I miss being in her skin,” she tells People.
Longoria is also expecting a baby boy with husband Jose “Pepe” Antonio Baston and is due in June, this is Longoria’s first child.
