Eva Longoria Scores “Woman of the Year” Title from Maxim

Posted Tuesday January 7, 2014 9:00 AM GMT

She’s less than two years away from her dreaded 40th birthday, but that didn’t stop Eva Longoria from nabbing top honors from Maxim magazine.

The “Desperate Housewives” dame was just named Woman of the Year, and it’s not surprising given her universal sex appeal.

Eva told Maxim, "It's especially awesome after how long it's been since my first cover. I've had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years … When someone sees the cover of this issue, they're going to say, '¡Que rico!' … Say it when something is really good."

Longoria added, "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."

"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."
