Eva Longoria Embraced Sexy Roles After 'Desperate Housewives' and Is Open to a Reboot

Eva Longoria, known for her role in ‘Desperate Housewives,’ openly embraced being typecast in sexy roles and is eager for a reboot, despite creator Marc Cherry’s reluctance. Discover her views and latest projects.

Bollywood Fever: Eva Longoria has revealed that she had no problem being typecast in ‘sexy’ roles following her stint on Desperate Housewives, embracing the opportunity to say ‘yes’ to such parts. The 49-year-old actress, who starred as Gabrielle Solis in all eight seasons of the ABC comedy-drama from 2004 to 2012, discussed her career choices and the impact of her iconic role in an exclusive interview with DailyMail.

Longoria admitted she didn’t shy away from being cast in roles dripping in sex appeal because she knows she is “so much more.” Reflecting on her career, she shared, “Somebody asked me: ‘Aren’t you scared you’re going to be pigeonholed into being sexy or sexy roles?’ And I was like, ‘That would be great. That’d be great.’ I’m riding sexy to the beach. So I never really bustled with [that]. I’m so much more. I’m like, ‘No, I know I’m more, but I’ll take the sexy roles.’ I embraced it and it was fun and great.

Longoria’s character, Gabrielle Solis, was known for her affair with her teenage gardener, John Rowland, played by Jesse Metcalfe. The pair often engaged in steamy scenes, adding to the character’s allure. Over her career, she continued to lean into these roles, starring in the 2008 rom-com Over Her Dead Body alongside Paul Rudd and Lake Bell, and in the black comedy Lower Learning the same year.

Despite the 12-year gap since Desperate Housewives aired its final episode, Longoria is enthusiastic about the idea of a reboot. However, she disclosed that the show’s creator, Marc Cherry, has no interest in revisiting Wisteria Lane. “I would be the first one to sign up,” she said. “I loved Desperate Housewives, and I love my time on the show and I love the women – and we all still talk. Marc Cherry, our creator, doesn’t want to do a reboot. He’s really adamant on the fact that there’s nothing more to say with these characters.”

Longoria reflected on the groundbreaking nature of the show, which featured a predominantly 40-plus, all-female cast, following the lives of four housewives after the mysterious suicide of a neighbor. “Desperate Housewives was on at a time where it was 24 episodes a year for eight years. None of this six to eight episodes bulls**t,” she remarked. “Marc feels like we fully explored these characters. Like I couldn’t sleep with one more person on Wisteria Lane. I slept with everybody! I fought with everybody. He felt like he doesn’t have anything else to mine.”

In her latest role in the Apple drama Land of Women, Longoria continues to push boundaries. She previously told DailyMail.com that Desperate Housewives should have employed an intimacy coordinator for its many raunchy scenes, reflecting on her experiences filming with Jesse Metcalfe. “I had a lot of intimate scenes,” she said. “We both came from soaps, which was like not worse, but like a lot of kissing scenes. So we were both like, okay, whatever. It didn’t bother us. But looking back now, I go, my gosh, we probably should have had an intimacy coordinator just in case somebody was uncomfortable.”

Longoria’s candid reflections and ongoing passion for her craft continue to endear her to fans, as she embraces both her past roles and future opportunities in the entertainment industry.
