Eva Longoria bounced back from her split from Tony Parker, but the self-proclaimed “hopeless optimist” told Health in the January issue that the divorce took a toll on her physically.
“I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked. It was probably the most unhealthy place I’ve ever been,” Longoria told the magazine. “So it was funny what people would see me as ‘healthy.’ In my worst time, people were saying I’ve never looked better.”
The 36 year-old Mexican American Desperate Housewives star has since worked on getting healthier with a new diet and exercise routine.
Us Weekly reports that Longoria likes weight training and abs as part of her workout regimen. “I hate the elliptical,” she says. “I despise cardio. I just can’t do it. So I try to do my cardio within the workout.”
Longoria, who is currently dating Eduardo Cruz, also said that getting back on her feet after the divorce wasn’t so hard. “It’s funny, because I don’t get depressed,” she said. “Even after my divorce, everybody was like, 'Wow, you bounced back so quick.' I was like, 'I am not letting this take over. Something great is around the corner -- I can't wait to see what's going to happen.”
With a full plate of new movies and TV shows coming up, Longoria will be busy, but she has a new healthy ifestyle to keep her going.
