Quotables: Eva Longoria Thinks Eva Longoria Is JUST GREAT
"I never thought of myself as a sex symbol. I just do the cover of magazines. I think it's really unfair men or people in the world think you can't be both—you can't be a sex symbol and a serious businessperson. Who says I can't be both? Who says I can't do the cover of Maxim and run a production company? Women are complex. Women are beautiful and intellectual and spiritual and social and entrepreneurial. They're everything. And I think I'm a great example of that."
--Eva Longoria tells Prestige all about how wonderful she is. Because of course she did.
It's just that ... ugh. This little quote started out fine, and sure, she made a decent point: women can be sexy and serious at the very same time, imagine that! It's just that very last part, the "I'm a great example of women who can be beautiful and smart and sexy and business oriented and funny and powerful and friendly and nice and great and fun and cute and ..." That ellipsis, by the way, was put in there because, for some reason, I can imagine Eva being able to go on for a great while longer about all her good qualities. Because she is everything. Yeah, that's where it started to get annoying.
Hey, here's a wacky idea: what if we tried out some humility, Eva Longoria? Wouldn't that be wild? Maybe if you could add that into the mix, then you really could be everything! (Probably not though, sorry.)
