of the Year," and was ranked three years in a row in the prestigious Forbes Celebrity 100, as well as two years in a row as the "No. 1 Hottest Woman in the World" on Maxim's annual "Hot 100" list.

On the film front, Longoria stars in "For Greater Glory," a period piece set in Mexico chronicling the historic Cristeros War, opposite Andy García and Peter O'Toole, "Baytown Disco" with Billy Bob Thornton, and "Without Men, co-starring Christian Slater, Oscar Nunez ("The Office") and Kate del Castillo ("Weeds").

Longoria also had a cameo in the Farrelly Brothers' "The Heartbreak Kid," starring Ben Stiller and Malin Akerman, and had a leading role opposite Rob Corddry, Monica Potter and Jason Biggs in the independent film "Lower Learning," with writer/director Mark Lafferty.

Longoria recently returned as both host and executive-producer of the National Council of La Raza ALMA Awards, which honors Latino artistic achievement in the television, film and music industry. She created UnbeliEVAble Entertainment, her own production company, which develops films and television shows. She is also working as an executive producer in collaboration with Academy Award-nominated Shine Global, a non-profit film production company that is dedicated to the elimination of child exploitation and abuse through the production of films to raise social awareness and effect political change, for the documentary film, "Harvest." Longoria combines the pride of her Latin heritage with her strong support of the 2010 Census by partnering with Pepsi to direct and produce a documentary film for the "Yo Sumo" Campaign, which encourages Latinos to go beyond being counted and begin "to count" by sharing experiences that have helped shape the landscape of this great country. This also marks Longoria's directorial debut.

Longoria partnered with Celebrity Chef Todd English and opened the restaurant Beso Hollywood in March 2008. In December 2009, she brought her world-renowned and famed restaurant to the gorgeous 8.5 billion-dollar CityCenter in Las Vegas.

Longoria launched her first fragrance, EVA by Eva Longoria, in April 2010. In addition she represents L'Oreal Paris as an international spokesperson, is the face of Bebe Sport, and was the spokesperson for Heineken Light in a very popular worldwide campaign.

Longoria released her first New York Times best selling cookbook, "Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family and Friends," on April 5, 2011. This flavor-packed cookbook of recipes reflects her passion for cooking and her fascinating life story, from her Texan roots and Mexican heritage to her close family ties and incredibly successful career.

Longoria's dedication to a better earth has lead to her becoming an investor in the eco-friendly development firm The GreenVille Project, which is committed to designing, building and maintaining community-based, sustainably-built and energy-neutral retail marketplaces. She also has her own charities and organizations that are very close to her heart, and pours her free time, energy and love into philanthropic missions that make a difference in the Latino community. She serves as the national spokesperson for PADRES Contra El Cáncer (Parents Against Cancer), a nonprofit organization committed to improving the quality of life for Latino children with cancer and their families. She was also the honorary chair for "Rally for Kids with Cancer," where all money raised benefited PADRES and Children's Hospital Los Angeles. In addition to PADRES, she works with the Special Olympics and founded the non-profit organization "Eva's Heroes," which is dedicated to enriching the lives of those with developmental challenges. She has taken an active role in Make-a-Wish France, an organization that grants wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions.

In addition to her work with her own charities, Longoria has donated a new home to a victim of Hurricane Katrina through the Oprah's Angel Network. She was recently selected as one of 12 female celebrities, including Sienna Miller, Milla Jovovich, Emily Blunt, Susan Sarandon, Helen Hunt and Mira Sorvino, to take part in the "Montblanc Signature for Good" charity initiative to benefit UNICEF's battle against illiteracy. When the earthquake hit the people of Haiti, Longoria was one of the first celebrities to step up and lend a hand, volunteering her time to her friend George Lopez's "Help Haiti" fundraiser. She has since remained active and has become an ambassador for "aHomeInHaiti." Longoria participated in the first ever celebrity Twitter auction called "TwitChange" in which celebrities auction off "tweets" and "mentions" for charity. Longoria raised over a half a million dollars to benefit Haiti. Celebrities taking part include Zachary Levi, Jewel, Victoria Beckham, Jessica Alba, the Jonas Brothers, Justin Bieber, Demi Moore, Kelly Clarkson, Kim Kardashian, Shaquille O'Neil, and many more. In her second round of TwitChange, she plans to raise money to benefit CARE, which is dedicated to helping disenfranchised and marginalized people around the world — namely the millions of girls and women who are struggling to lift themselves and their families out of poverty and create lasting change in their communities.

Amongst Longoria's many philanthropic awards are the Horizon Award from the National Hispanic Foundation for the Arts (2005), Latina Visionary and Community Empowerment Award from the Women's Corporation (2006), Mujer/Chair Award from the National Hispania Leadership Institute (2006), Corazones Unidos Award from the Larry King Cardiac Foundation in partnership with the American Heart Association (2006), Hope of Los Angeles Award (2008), Cesar Chavez Legacy Award (2009), Community Service Award by the Mexican American Legal Defense Fund (MALDEF) (2009), the Premio de Oro – Distinguished Business Leadership Award (2010), the "Medallion of Excellence Award" by CHCI (2010) and the National Freedom Award by the National Civil Rights Museum (2010).

Longoria currently works closely with the United Farm Workers, the Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund, the Dolores Huerta Foundation and the National Council of La Raza. In addition, she was recently selected by Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi as an appointee to the National Museum of the American Latino Commission. The National Museum will create a home for the historical artifacts, images and personal stories documenting more than 500 years of American Latino contributions to the United States.

Longoria is invited to speak all over the country on issues pertaining to philanthropy, civil rights, labor issues, literacy, education, poverty and disabilities. Whether she is volunteering during a presidential campaign, fundraising, engaging Latino voters or spending time with her family, Longoria proves that ambition can be applied to philanthropic ventures, as well as a successful career that knows no boundaries, both in the United States and around the world. Additionally, Longoria is currently in grad school to get her master's in Chicano studies/political science.
