Eva Longoria has found her way off of Wisteria Lane and on to the cover of Health Magazine's January/February 2012 issue.
The Desperate Housewives star is featured sporting a healthy smile on the cover of the mag in a BCBGMAXAZARIA top, Rachel Roy shorts, Melinda Maria earrings and a Bulgari ring. Inside of the pages, Eva discusses everything from her mental state following her divorce, to her definition of beauty and of course, poses for a few more flawless shots.
On how she defines a healthy life: "People think health only has to do with your physical being, but for me, it's so much more. I remember after my divorce, I was so thin and everyone kept saying how great I looked and it was probably the most unhealthy place I've ever been. So it was funny what people would see as 'healthy.' In my worst time, people were saying I've never looked better. [But now] I have a great diet and exercise routine. And I try to have a healthy outlook. I'm your everlasting, hopeless optimist!"
On her positive attitude: "I was just born with that. It's so funny, because I don't get depressed. Even after my divorce, everybody was like, 'Wow, you bounced back so quick.' I was like, 'I am not letting this take over. Something great is around the corner—I can't wait to see what's going to happen.'
On pressure to keep up with the "beautiful thing." "No. I think that's probably why I make those lists, because it takes a village to build me for the red carpet. It's an illusion created by stylists, hair, makeup. I don't put as much effort into it as my team does. But I think people see something beyond that with me, and I love that I'm defined by my charity work. I think that's what people see when they give me this label of 'She's a beautiful person.'
Eva even shares what her resolution will be as she rings in the new year tonight, the actress claims she wants to travel more in 2012: "Travel. Everywhere. Wherever the wind takes me. I could live anywhere; I can learn any language. I just love it. I love being immersed in the world."
Now, that is a resolution that we love! Check out the photos of Eva in the gallery above, and head over to Health.com for the full article.
