Name: Eva Jacqueline Longoria
Born: 15 March 1975
Occupation: Actress, Model, Spokeswoman, Author
Eva Longoria is an American actress with Mexican-American parents. She began acting early on in television shows such as Beverly Hills, 90210 and the daytime soap opera drama The Young and the Restless. However, when she was cast as Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives she became a household name. In addition to acting she has worked as a model, spokeswoman for L’Oreal Paris, Heineken, Bebe, LG Fashion Touch, and others. In 2010 she launched her own perfume called ‘EVA by Eva Longoria.’ She has authored a cook book and she is also in the restaurant business, albeit with much less success. She, along with her partners, filed for Chapter 11 Bankruptcy.
Eva was born in Corpus Christi, Texas and has three older sisters. She attended Texas A & M University – Kingsville and obtained a degree in kinesiology. She was also Miss Corpus Christi in 1998 and shortly thereafter moved to Los Angeles where she was signed by an agent. She married actor Tyler Christopher in 2002, although the marriage only lasted just over two years. After her divorce she met Tony Parker, a professional basketball player for the San Antonio Spurs, and they later married in 2006 only to file for divorce in 2011.
From her many different acting jobs, to gracing the covers of multiple magazines, to her new line of perfume, Eva Longoria is not light in the pocketbook. She came in second on the Forbes list for highest paid actresses and made it to the 81st spot for their celebrity top 100 list in 2011 for a yearly income of $13 million. We estimate Eva Longoria’s net worth at $35 million (22,000,000 GBP).
So how much is $35,000,000 dollars really?
Since Eva Longoria seems to enjoy charity work and fighting for Latino rights, she could use some of that money to give to charity. Her Eva’s Heroes charity helps developmentally disabled kids so she could always send more money their way. Or she could donate to the many other organizations she’s aligned with.
Or she could just buy 210 million eggs. That is enough to cover the egg consumption in all of Iceland for three years. Or about 17 trillion calories if you like counting those.
Yet, if you’re feeling a tad bit jealous of her wealth, you really shouldn’t. After all, that money could only pay to have one small, two-story hospital built in the US.
