Maxim magazine didn’t waste any time naming its Woman of the Year for 2014, selecting a veteran television actress for the honor. The male-targeted publication revealed on the cover of its January/February issue that Eva Longoria is its choice.
"She was the sexiest suburbanite in history on ‘Desperate Housewives,’ and now she’s a big shot producer, a savvy businesswoman, and our 2014 Woman of the Year," the magazine noted. "Is there anything Eva Longoria can’t do? (Hint: The answer is no.)"
Longoria is a two-time Screen Actors Guild Award winner as part of the "Desperate Housewives" ensemble, and was nominated individually for a Golden Globe for her work on the ABC series. She has increasingly become involved in television production, notably as an executive producer on "Devious Maids."
