See Her, Hear Her
Eva Longoria became famous for her appearance on TV and in movies, but her strong activist’s voice may be winning her more fans than her celebrity.
As part of Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15 to October 15, Variety and Variety Latino launched the “Power of Latinos:
20 Most Influential Stars List,” spotlighting the most successful Latino film and TV actors in Hollywood. Those who made the list of 10 men and 10 women didn’t get there solely because of professional accomplishments; the criteria included how influential and appealing the celebrities are within the Latino community.
Eva Longoria was in the top five, along with Sofia Vergara and Jennifer Lopez, and it’s clear why: no one on that list is more dedicated than Longoria to giving Latinos a voice in U.S. politics. “I am beyond humbled,” Longoria told Variety Latino, reacting to her inclusion on the list. “I love being a part of the Hispanic community just like I love being a part of the women’s community. I feel like we need more Latinos in decision-making positions in all industries, not just entertainment.”
