Eva Longoria hit the Glamour Reel Moments premiere red carpet on Monday in Hollywood, wearing a bright blue dress for her directorial debut. Eva, who looked stunning in her blue dress, told In Touch she chose her outfit because she was going to the state dinner at the White House after the premiere, and she thought it looked democratic.
The actress, whose short film premiered at the event, also discussed her inspiration for giving back. “I have a very philanthropic family, so I was raised with charity giving and compassion. I’m inspired mostly by my older sister who has special needs, Lisa. So being part of her world and seeing people who don’t have what you have and who need more than you need kind of instills in you this empathy and compassion for life.”
Now that she’s had a hand in acting and directing, what does Eva prefer? “I like them both. Directing definitely gives you more control of the end product. As an actor you just show up and look pretty, say your lines, say them right. But as a director, you have total control of the editing and the final product and the music, I mean just everything, so it was definitely different muscles that you had to use.”
Will she ever direct a feature film? “I’ll definitely be doing a feature length in the future, not any time soon because it takes a lot of time.”
