Eva Longoria is moving from the small screen to the big screen in the latest flick “Over Her Dead Body” which opens today. Eva plays a ghost in the movie and we caught up with her at the movies junket. Here are some highlights from our interview.
On psychics: "One psychic predicated everything and she was right on. This was 10 years ago and at the time I thought it was funny but looking back everything was on the dot. You can’t take all that stuff too seriously though"
About the 'Over Her Dead Body Premiere': "Ya they're all coming for the premiere, my parents, my friends. Tony will always go to the theater opening weekend and buy like 50 tickets himself because opening weekend is what really matters."
On the strike: "I’ve just been home with my husband and we've been waiting out the strike. It’s hard to commit to anything because once it’s over your back to work. It’s perfect timing for us cause were newlyweds but at the same time I want to get back to work"
On learning French for Tony: "I understand it and I speak it probably about 50% but I have a lot more to go. I understand the questions but I want to be able to respond in an articulate way. I wanna be able to say more"
On strange hobbies: "I crochet and I sew. I sew a lot and I cook a lot. I made my nieces costumes for Halloween like a bunny, a cat, and a sheep. I knit baby booties. I made Marcia baby booties"
On Nicolette being inspired by her wedding:"She said she was inspired my wedding. Her and Michael have been long lost loves for 20 years. They’re not in rush. They're just beautiful together, with or without the ring."
On the constant media coverage in Hollywood: "I think it's a little obsessive right now. It's crazy. I read somewhere that there was 3x more coverage on Britney than election, war, global warming. It irritates me when it’s on CNN or MSN. I wanna know what’s happening in Iraq, I don’t care that Britney got Starbucks today.
How she stays grounded: "I was a lot older when fame hit me so I was more defined in who I was. when it hits you early everyone is telling you what you are and you buy into the hype. It’s hard.
About her in tabloids: "No, i don’t like the magazines or the websites. Sometimes it's weird, especially when someone in line is like 'is that you?'
On Magazines:"Growing up we didn’t have the money to buy magazines. So for me when I came into fame I was really in awe, like 'wow this is a beautiful magazine.' So it's fun to be on the cover of (fashion magazines) them."
On getting red carpet ready: "2 hours, no more. I have Team Eva so they dictate everything and I just sit there.
