Eva Longoria was pretty in pink when she was spotted enjoying a night on the town in West Hollywood this week. The 47-year-old Desperate Housewives star opted for a tiny pair of hot pink shorts that allowed her to showcase her shapely legs.
She swung along a bulging shopping bag and balanced expertly on a pair of sky-high stilettos as she strutted her stuff down the sidewalk. The brunette bombshell lent her ensemble an extra splash of dazzle with a glittering necklace and a pair of massive hoop earrings.
She teamed the shorts with a matching blazer, which she threw over a skintight white crop top that hinted ever so slightly at her trim midriff. Sweeping her luxurious dark hair back into a high ponytail, the small screen siren accentuated her features with makeup.
Eva was headed to dinner at the new West Hollywood nightspot Catch Steak LA, which opened in June on the premises that used to be Fig & Olive. Catch Steak LA is an outpost of the same company that owns Catch LA, which became a showbiz hot spot when it opened in the same neighborhood in 2016.
After shooting wrapped, Eva told Variety: ‘I’m so honored to have led this team in telling a beautiful story where people can see themselves in these characters and are inspired by the endless beauty and talent that is so rich in our community.’
At the moment she is still in the midst of post-production on Flamin’ Hot, the biopic she is directing about Cheetos inventor Richard Montanez. Quinceanera star Jesse Garcia is playing the lead amid a cast that includes Veep actor Matt Walsh and The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Tony Shalhoub.
Said she: ‘Every day we were on set, I was reminded again and again by our amazing cast and crew that our community is smart, creative and endlessly talented.’ She revealed last year that she thought of herself as a white male in order to pitch herself as the director for the project.
Brian told Eva: ‘Walk in the room as if that movie’s yours and you’re directing it and tell them this is how you’re going to cast it, this is how you’re going to shoot it.’ Eva recalled: ‘And I thought. “Oh my gosh, yeah! I’m not a man and I’m not white, so I wouldn’t think to do that.”‘
The tactic was suggested to her by Desperate Housewives producer Brian Tanen, she dished to The Sun On Sunday. ‘I was practicing pitching (for the job) with him and he said: “Stop right there. Put on your male privilege pants and stop ASKING to do this movie.”‘
Said she: ‘It was a change in approach to every sentence that came out of my mouth. Because as a woman, we want to be amenable. We want to be seen as cooperative.’
