Eva Longoria Wants Us to Feel Bad for Her

January 30th, 2008 // 16 Comments

The Desperate Housewives star recently stepped out at the Arclight in Hollywood to premiere her film Over Her Dead Body. Eva Longoria is talking some mess about how she used to be considered an “ugly duckling” by her family, and growing up, she “developed a skill not to depend on anything superficial because I didn’t have anything superficial to depend on.”

Basically, because Eva was the only one of her sisters who didn’t have blonde hair and hazel eyes, she was labeled as the “ugly” one. Wow. Those self-hating Latinas should hang out with Jessica Alba. Sounds like they’d have lots to talk about. But more than anything, I’m just confused…where’s the personality Eva had to develop?

Eva’s Desperate Housewives co-star and off-screen buddy Felicity Huffman was also at the premiere as well as Nicolette Sheridan and Michael Bolton. That actually leads me to believe that they really are friends, because only someone who really cares about you is going to attend your lame movie premiere just to add some star power to it, even when they know it’s going to be HORRIBLE. Did you see the previews? Ugh. Being haunted by Eva Longoria looks like the worst.

Oh wow and the hot El Pollo Loco guy was there too. Nice.

  1. I’m crying right now for poor ugly Eva. Really I am.

    Eva made this statement a few years ago and I (as her lone fan) kind of like her.
    She did grow-up being told she was ugly but she did what she had to do to “make it” on her own AND I can’t help but like a woman who can go-out and shoot her own wild pig/javelina then make yummy tamales out of it for her friends and family.

    Poor poor Eva. She bravely shouldered the burden of great suffering growing up, while her non-ugly blonde blue-eyed sister Liza had it SO easy. Even though she’s mentally challenged, Liza obviously hasn’t had to endure anything close to Eva’s daily struggle of being burdened with brown hair and brown eyes.
