Latino actress and political activist Eva Longoria has been named as Maxim’s Woman of the Year. While appearing in the popular men’s magazine a few times in the past, the former Desperate Housewives star has been given the magazine’s coveted award.
“She was the sexiest suburbanite in history on Desperate Housewives, and now she’s a big shot producer, a savvy businesswoman, and our 2014 Woman of the Year,” announced Maxim on their website about giving the actress the nod, “Is there anything Eva Longoria can’t do? (Hint: The answer is no.)”
In response to the recognition, Longoria said that it was “awesome after how long it’s been since my first cover. I’ve had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years.”
However, beauty and talent aren’t the only two things that have earned the actress the nomination. Over the past few years the star has become a top philanthropist and has made quite the impact in the world of politics.
