Not one to run away from her visible sex appeal, actress Eva Longoria has excelled at portraying sexy women during her Hollywood career.

Though gorgeous in her adult years, Longoria has described herself as the most common looking child ever as a young child.
After emerging into a eye-catching young lady, she attended Texas A&M University at Kingsville, where she received her degree in Kinesiology, the study of body movement. When Eva wasn’t studying, she appeared on stage in university theater productions.
After graduation, Longoria won an Infinity Model Search contest, which led to her discovery by a theatrical agent.

Next was the romantic comedy "Over Her Dead Body" (2008) about a ghost who tries to sabotage her former boyfriend's current relationship with a psychic. Then Longoria lent her vocal talents to the animated comedy "Foodfight!" (2008) starring Charlie Sheen and Hilary Duff, where when the lights are turned off and the doors are locked, chaos reigns supreme for the products in this grocery store. The actress wrapped the year with the comedy "Lower Learning" (2008) about Barry Goldwater Elementary that on the brink of collapse with the lowest test scores in the state, with teachers who are either drunk or having sex on school grounds, and a principal who extorts money from parents.
