Eva Longoria produced John Wick 1, I read wrong?
00:15
You read correctly, I did produce the first John Wick.
00:19
I saved the movie, I really did.
00:21
It was fun.
00:22
Keanu was amazing and it was an amazing movie.

Longoria has appeared in several advertising campaigns,
00:31
including People magazine and People [speaks Spanish],
00:34
and I have modeling contracts with L'Oreal, Hanes,
00:37
New York and Company and others.
00:39
Never, never modeled with Hanes.
00:41
Isn't that a man's company?
00:43
Do they make girl stuff?
00:45
Lady Hanes?
00:46
Lady Hanes, I should wear some Lady Hanes.
00:49
I'm not with Hanes.
00:50
I have been with L'Oreal for 15 years.

Too funny.
00:57
I wonder, do you go everywhere with that apple box?
00:59
I'm very short.
01:01
And so, every time I'm directing, I can't see the monitors,
01:04
and so I usually have to have an apple box to even see
01:08
what the actors are doing.
01:09

Godmother of Victoria Beckham and David Beckham's daughter,
01:17
Harper Beckham.
01:19
Yes, I am.
01:20
I am Harper's god-mom.
01:21
Her mom and I have been friends for many, many years.
01:24
Victoria took myself and Ken Paves, the godfather,
01:27
out to dinner and told us we were gonna be
01:30
the godparents, and we were so happy.
01:32
We were so excited.
01:33
Fun time, fun moment,
01:34
and I love it.
01:34
I'm the godmother of her only daughter.

Was a dancer with the Pussycat Dolls.
01:39
I was a dancer! I danced.
01:42
The Pussycat Dolls were a big deal back in the day in LA,
01:46
and Robin Antin, who created the Pussycat Dolls,
01:48
would always have guest dancers.
01:50
Every week, she had Cameron Diaz,
01:51
and she had Christina Applegate.
01:53
She had Carmen Electra.
01:54
I danced with them in their Vegas opening.
01:58
It was so much fun.
01:59
I think back now, and I'm like, Oh my gosh,
02:00
I never would have done that now!
02:01
just 'cause of the fear.
02:03
I was fearless back then.
02:04
I was like, I'll do it, I'll dance,
02:06
and now I'm like, Oh my God, I can't do this.
02:08
What I loved most about the Pussycat Dolls were the outfits,
02:10
like the hat, the bustier and the corset,
02:14
and it's like, who doesn't look good in a corset?
02:16
Guacamole reminds her of home.
02:18
Guacamole reminds me of a good time.
02:19
That's what guacamole does.

Longoria was recognized for her portrayal
02:29
of Isabella Brana on the CBS daytime soap opera
02:32
Young and the Restless.
02:32
I was on Young and the Restless.
02:34
That was my first big role, and I loved it.
02:37
Y and R, baby!

While in high school, Eva worked at Wendy's part-time
02:43
for three years to help earn money
02:45
for her [speaks Spanish].
02:46
I did. I worked at Wendy's.
02:48
[keyboard keys clacking] I was pretty good at it.
02:50
I worked at Wendy's when I was in high school
02:52
because I wanted a [speaks Spanish]
02:53
and my parents wouldn't throw me a [speaks Spanish].
02:55
So I was like, I'ma throw myself a [speaks Spanish].
02:57
I was too young to be working.
02:59
I was 14 and stole my sister's ID
03:01
and went and got a job.
03:03
But then I got permission to work there by my parents.
03:05
But I didn't want to tell my parents I was working.
03:07
I just went to go work there.

[keyboard keys clacking] Quora.
03:12
What's Quora?
03:14
What is Eva Longoria's relationship like
03:16
with her sisters?
03:17
Amazing.
03:18
My sisters and I are very, very close.
03:20
And you know I have a special needs sister,
03:22
who is my oldest sister and she is the light of our family.
03:25
And I tolerate my other two sisters, Emily and Esmeralda.
03:29
I look nothing like my sisters.
03:31
Not only that, we don't even have the same illnesses.
03:33
You know, when they get sick,
03:33
they get the same things and I don't.
03:35
They all think the same and I don't.
03:37
I still think I'm adopted.
03:39
Had I done my DNA test
03:41
that proved I was my parents' daughter,
03:43
I would still think I'm adopted.
03:45
I was definitely the black sheep of the family.
03:47
The only one with black, black, black, black hair.

[Eva speaks Spanish]
03:56
Where do I get so much energy from?
03:57
My mom!
03:58
My mom is the most energetic person I know.
04:00
I actually always feel like I'm not doing enough
04:02
because I remember her doing so much
04:04
when we were growing up.
04:05
She would drive everybody around,
04:06
and take us to cheerleading practice,
04:08
and work full-time,
04:09
and raise a special needs kid,
04:10
and have dinner on the table
04:11
every day at six o'clock for my dad.
04:13
I don't know how she did it,
04:14
but I feel like I'm never doing enough.

04:18
Were you ever a recruiter for an HR firm?
04:20
I was!
04:21
When I moved to Hollywood, I went to a temp agency
04:24
to get a job and the temp agency ended up hiring me.
04:27
So I was a recruiter.
04:28
I was a headhunter for many years.
04:31
As a matter of fact, I was doing so well as a headhunter,
04:33
I was making more money as a headhunter
04:34
than when I got my first job on Young and the Restless.
04:37
So I stayed as a headhunter
04:38
while I was on Young and the Restless.
04:40
And I did my work from my dressing room at CBS.
04:43
Boom! [mouse clicking]
04:44
Eva, after working for so long on one show,
04:46
Desperate Housewives, is it difficult to move on
04:48
to a completely different role?
04:49
Yes!
04:50
It was so hard.
04:51
It was a decade of my life playing Gabrielle Solis
04:54
and I loved it so much.
04:55
And I remember I took a lot of time off
04:57
after Desperate Housewives 'cause I was just tired.
04:59
We were so exhausted.
05:00
And the fist time I went back to acting
05:01
was on Brooklyn Nine-Nine,
05:03
and I just did a guest star,
05:04
and I felt like I forgot how to act.
05:06
And I remember talking to Andy,
05:07
I was like, things aren't coming out of my mouth.
05:10
I was so rusty.
05:11
It was just being in a different character's skin
05:13
and I was like, I don't know how to play this character.
05:16
'Cause I had been Gabrielle Solis for so long.
05:19
I miss it. I miss her.
