USA TODAY - Eva Longoria is looking pretty hot on the cover of Maxim's January/February issue, in which the men's mag has named her Woman of the Year.
In the accompanying interview, Longoria says the honor is "especially awesome after how long it's been since my first cover. I've had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years."
Other highlights from the interview:
Maxim: Besides acting, you're a producer, a businesswoman, and a philanthropist. We also heard you had to reschedule this interview because you had to present your thesis.
Longoria: Yeah, I'm getting my master's degree. I was like, "My brain can't jump that fast from a Maxim interview to a thesis!" Back in high school I really was the chameleon, too. I got along with the honors math club, then I would go to cheerleading practice, and then I was a band geek as well.
Maxim: You're so busy, but do you have a guilty pleasure that helps you unwind?
Longoria: Cooking. One thing people are usually surprised about when they get to know me is how domestic I am. So when you see the sexy Maxim cover and then you put it against me in an apron with flour in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image.
Maxim: Finally, as a Spanish speaker, what's a phrase you think every guy should know?
Longoria: "¡Que rico!" Say it when something is really good, when you're enjoying something. Like, when someone sees the cover of this issue, they're going to say, "¡Que rico!"
