I can’t decide if I’m more hungry or aroused thinking about this…
Eva Longoria made her highly anticipated Democratic National Convention appearance on Thursday night. In her brief, yet heartfelt speech, the “Desperate Housewives” actress reminded listeners that she used to work at the Wendy’s fast food chain.
“I have been on a lot of stages in my career, but none as important as this one,” she began.
Quickly, she moved into topics like health care, education, and even small businesses.
But, so far, the most talked about mention in her entire five-minute speech, was about her pre-acting occupation, which came up during the topic of tax cuts.
“Mitt Romney would raise taxes on middle class families to cut his own and mine,” she said, contrasting the GOP’s tax cut plan to that of Obama’s campaign.
She continued, “The Eva Longoria who worked at Wendy’s flipping burgers… She needed a tax break. But the Eva Longoria who works on movie sets does not.”
Rallying behind Eva was fellow actress Scarlett Johansson.
According to The Avengers star, her reasoning for appearing on stage was “to use whatever attention I’m fortunate enough to receive to shed the spotlight on what’s at stake for all of us.”
Scarlett’s main goal for appearing at the event was to mobilize viewers to get out and vote.
“I’m not going to tell you who to vote for,” she said. “I’m here to ask you to commit to vote.”
Also appearing at the convention was Django Unchained actress Kerry Washington and the Foo Fighters who performed their hits “My Hero” and “Walk.”
