Eva Longoria Talks Dating, Politics and Censoring George Lopez (VIDEO)
Eva Longoria is far from being a Desperate Housewife after landing herself a new man and a possible career in politics.
Talking to Celebuzz on the red carpet of the ALMA Awards on Sunday, Longoria, 37 – who is romancing NFL star Mark Sanchez, 25 – opened up about her love life, political views and George Lopez's dangerous sense of humor.
So what did she say about her new beau?
The stunning actress – who wowed in no less than 11 different dresses as she hosted the Latin Awards – has become a hit on the political scene after delivering an impressive speech at the Democratic National Convention on September 6. But despite her keen interest in politics – she serves as a co-chair of President Barack Obama's reelection campaign – she doesn’t like mixing it with her love life.
When asked if her man has to vote the same way she does, she said, “What, politically? No, not necessarily,”
Longoria co-hosted the ALMA’s alongside Lopez, and while she was happy with the outcome, she admitted all fingers were firmly on the censor button when it came to his jokes.
"His comedy is different every year so we always have to have the censor button ready for George because you never know what's going to come out of his mouth," said Longoria, who has hosted the awards with Lopez for the last three years.
Longoria is supporting Barack Obama in his presidential campaign but she is also keen to one day have a Latina or Latino president.
"Oh my God, that would be amazing," she said at the Eva Longoria Foundation Event at Beso on September 15. "I’m doing a fundraiser for Julian Casto, who is the first Hispanic to speak at the Democratic Convention.
"That was a big moment. We have really high hopes for him and his brother, Joaquin Castro, so we're doing a fundraiser for them here. They're at the forefront. So we're just supporting them and hopefully they'll be up there pretty soon."
