Eva Longoria, 38
For eight seasons, Eva Longoria played the sneaky, funny and usually ditzy, Gabrielle Solis on ABC’s hit dramedy, Desperate Housewives. But in real life, Eva is no dummy. When she’s not busy performing as an actress or pounding the pavement as an activist, Eva is earning her Master’s degree in Chicano Studies. The native Texan also received a Bachelor’s of Science degree in Kinesiology at A&M University-Kingsville.
