Eva Longoria: 'Every Day I Strive To Be Happy'

She's dating Eduardo Cruz, so it's probably not too hard.

Eva Longoria held her Pre-Oscar Party at Beso Restaurant last night, and Hollyscoop talked to the actress about what her life’s been like lately, a year after her divorce from Tony Parker.

“You know what, every day I strive to be happy,” Longoria told Hollyscoop. “So yeah, I think every day is another victory!”

Well, Longoria has plenty to be happy about. Not only is she dating Penelope Cruz’s handsome brother, she’s also gone from in front of the camera to behind it, in Glamour Reel Moments Video Series: A Proper Send Off .

“I love being behind the scenes,” Eva told us. “And I love producing, and I’m going to do more directing, so yeah, I like it!”

If that’s not enough on her plate, Longoria was also recently named national “co-chair” of Obama’s re-election campaign. The actress has been a loyal supporter of President Obama since the Democratic primaries in 2008. As a co-chair, Eva will help Obama in developing strategies for the next election.

With all of this on her list of things to do, Eva still manages to constantly look not just put-together, but frankly, stunning. So what beauty advice does she have for other ladies-on-the-go?

“Oh my gosh, I’ve got so many beauty tips, I gotta do a book!” Longoria told us. Referring to herself she added, “This is an illusion, this takes a village! But definitely, I always say- false lashes!”
