On being cochair of President Obama’s reelection campaign: “When they asked me to officially be a cochair, it was not just to put my face on something,” says Longoria. “My mission is to educate the public on Obama’s record, specifically with the two communities that pertain tome: women and Latinos.”

On transitioning from actress to executive producer through her new production company, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment: “It’s a great position to be in … I want to be the go-to person for amazing projects.”

On finding the right men among hundreds for her new show Ready for Love: “I’m a woman. I can tell if they want to find their soul mate or if they are just looking for stardom.”

Desperate Housewives creator Marc Cherry on collaborating with Eva on Devious Maids and her future success: “She came to Desperate Housewives as an unemployed actress and she left a star who was very aware of her position in the entertainment industry. She’ll probably end up better than me.”

On why education makes her feel powerful: “As an actress, there’s a stereotype that we can’t be smart, we can’t be political, we can’t be civic-minded or engaged. We just have to stay in front of the camera and look pretty,” Longoria says. “No, I’m human. I can do more.”
