Eva Longoria on Being Latina: "I Embrace It All!"

Eva Longoria shined at the star-studded 2012 NCLR ALMA Awards, which celebrates Latino influence in media and entertainment.

When it comes to being prideful of her identity, Eva exclusively chatted with us about what she loves most about being Latina. "I love being rooted in your culture, but not being constrained by it. I love being celebratory, bold, and independent. I embrace it all!" she expressed.

Besides executive producing new shows, Ready for Love and Devious Maids, the Mexican actress is also launching a new restaurant She, and forming part of The Imagination Project, a photo competition that will serve as a muse for the 37-year-old's upcoming short film.

"I love the creativity and the idea of bringing people together. You never know when you are going to be inspired," she said.
