Eva Longoria is commonly known as one of Hollywood’s most beautiful people, and yet there was a time not all that long ago when the actress didn’t agree with the honor.
Eva Longoria is known for her petite frame, but takes issue with those that say she looked amazing after becoming “so thin” on the divorce diet.
Eva Longoria explains in the latest issue of Health, “People think health only has to do with your physical being, but for me, it’s so much more. I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked and it was probably the most unhealthy place I’ve ever been.”
“So it was funny what people would see as ‘healthy,'” she continued. “In my worst time, people were saying I’ve never looked better. [But now], I have a great diet and exercise routine. And I try to have a healthy outlook.”
Though Eva Longoria has been named on just about every “most beautiful” list a time or two, the actress says she doesn’t feel pressured to employ a team of beauticians to help maintain her standings. “I think that’s probably why I make those lists, because it takes a village to build me for the red carpet,” she admitted. “It’s an illusion created by stylists, hair, makeup. I don’t put as much effort into it as my team does.”
The 36-year-old then went on to reminisce about the time she and Kim Kardashian had a heart-to-heart about those “most beautiful” lists.
“I was talking to Kim [Kardashian] about this the other day,” Eva Longoria explained. “I said, ‘You’re the most beautiful thing in the world.’ And she said, ‘No, you are.’ And I said, ‘No, I used to be.’ [Laughs] I was like, ‘No, honey, I’m old news.'”
