Eva Longoria Dishes On Her "Good Dresser" Boyfriend

Eva Longoria dished on work, family, and her sexy new novio on a recent episode of The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

As the executive producer of Devious Maids, a political activist, and an entrepreneur, Longoria keeps busy -- and that involves a lot of traveling. Luckily, the actress and activist says she loves to be in the air. 

"I work everywhere. I love planes, I love flying, I love airports," Longoria, 39, admitted to Ellen DeGeneres on Monday. 

In fact, Longoria has her favorite spots in each airport. "I know restaurants in certain airports that I will go earlier to the airport because I really want to eat there. Like In Dallas, there's this barbecue place in Terminal D, the American [Airlines] terminal. In San Antonio, there's a Mexican restaurant where the United Airlines are," she explained. "I love airports. I like reading, I like wifi. I get very excited!"

Recently, the star traveled with her mother to meet an important religious icon: the Dalai Lama. "He's just pure joy," she said. "It's tangible. It's in the air."

However, her mother found another famous face more exciting -- Jim Carrey. "I took my mom [to meet the Dalai Lama]," Longoria said. "And, if it's not Catholic, she doesn't really know. I was like 'Mom, he's like the Pope of Buddhism.' And this event had everyone there: Naomi Watts, Jeremy Renner. So, we met the Dalai Lama. At night, we were Skyping with my dad, and I say, 'Mom, come here and tell Dad who we met today!' And she goes, 'Jim Carrey!'"

While Longoria happily discussed her family, she seemed less willing to talk about her newest amor, Mexican businessman Jose Antonio BastonHowever, she did admit she's been forced to step-up her fashion game since meeting him. 

"I'm very happy," she said of Baston. "He's a good dresser, too. I always have to step it up. It's exhausting."
