Desperate Housewives star loves her British friends

Eva Longoria prefers get-togethers with her close pals which are very simple.

The Desperate Housewives star’s glam circle of LA-based confidantes include Victoria Beckham and Brit actress Kate Beckinsale.

When we hang out, we just stay home and talk, eat and laugh,’ says Eva, 37, who loves to sew and makes dresses for friends as well as curtains and pillows.

I don’t really like going out much. I prefer staying at home. I’m like a 1950s housewife. I cook, clean and do the ironing.’

Domesticated Eva is currently filming new movies following the end of Desperate Housewives earlier this year.

Yet she admits that she only became an actress after winning a beauty pageant and going to Hollywood.

I thought, “Actually, I’m going to stay here. I want to be an actor,”‘ Eva tells S Magazine.

It happened just like that – a total fluke.’
