What has Eva been doing in addition to appearing in numerous movies and TV shows? Eva launched her own production company, published a cookbook, and created a clothing line. Eva also started her own charitable foundation and became a mom to her gorgeous little baby boy, Santiago.

“Is there anything you aren’t doing,” Steve Forbes quips as he speaks with the actress turned entrepreneur and activist at the 2019 Forbes Women's Summit on Tuesday. “Well, I don’t sing,” Longoria jokes.

Eva used her eight years on set filming Desperate Housewives to learn the business, leading to the launch of Eva's production company, UnbeliEVAble Entertainment.

Eva continues to do amazing work to help push for change as a founder of the #TimesUp movement, which helps fight sexual harassment in the entertainment industry.

How does Eva do it all?

When Forbes asked Eva how she's able to handle so many projects at once, she replied, "I always hire people that are smarter than me."
