Eva Longoria Weighs In On Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump
Here’s what the 41-year-old actress and fashion designer had to share with the mag:
On Hillary Clinton’s likeability: “I have no idea why people don’t find Hillary likable. I know her on a personal level, and she is one of the most likable, amazing, engaged, compassionate human beings. It’s a matter of pulling that out and letting everyone see it. I don’t want to go have a beer with [Barack] Obama – I want him to run the country. I look for quality in a leader.”
On Donald Trump’s characterizations of the Latino community: “The fact that he uses the word ‘Latino’ to be synonymous with ‘illegal’ is a mistake. I’m ninth-generation American – I’m way more American than Donald Trump! I have to turn my offense and anger into a vote, not just complain about it.”
On the gender bias and being a boss lady: “There’s a reason we haven’t had a female president in our history. There is a gender bias in politics, in the workplace, and in the society – and to say there’s not is very naïve. I don’t have a problem telling people if something’s not quite right, or course-correcting – but it has to be done in the right way. I’m cooperative, respectful, and very honest. Just because I’m a boss lady doesn’t mean I have to be a bitch. In my head, I was always a director and producer – it’s in my nature to be in charge.”
On her fit figure: “There’s no secret formula – diet and exercise take work. I’ve always had a good metabolism, but at some point, everyone’s stops. For me, it was at around 35. You eat a bowl of pasta, and you’re like, ‘Oh, this doesn’t just go away anymore.’”
