Early life and educationEdit

Longoria at the 2009 Cannes Film Festival

Longoria was born in Corpus Christi, Texas on March 15, 1975,[3] the youngest of the four daughters of her Mexican-American (Tejano) parents Ella Eva (Mireles) and Enrique Longoria Jr.[4][5][6][7] One of her sisters had special needs. Longoria told Redbook in 2016:

There was never any resentment, because I saw how hard my mother worked and all she did for my sister [with special needs], and I wanted to do whatever I could to help. We all did.[8]

She was raised Roman Catholic.[9] She did not speak Spanish growing up, and did not learn the language until 2009.[10] While in high school, she worked at a Wendy's restaurant part-time for three years to help earn money for her quinceañera.[11][8] Longoria previously told the press how her years in fast food as a teen shaped her work ethic.

I couldn’t wait to get to work and make my own money.

Longoria earned her Bachelor of Science degree in kinesiology at Texas A&M University-Kingsville.[12][13] At that time (1998), she also won the title of Miss Corpus Christi USA.[14] After completing college, she entered a talent contest that led her to Los Angeles; and shortly thereafter, was spotted and signed by a theatrical agent.[15] While auditioning for roles, she worked as a headhunter for four years.[16]

After three years at California State University, Northridge, she received her master's degree in Chicano Studies in May 2013. Her thesis was "Success STEMS From Diversity: The Value of Latinas in STEM Careers".[13][17]


Longoria landed her first television role in 1999 after meeting executive producer Gary Ghiaey at a political reception in Los Angeles.[18] She guest-starred in an episode of Beverly Hills, 90210.[19] Another guest appearance on General Hospital the same year brought her big break on the CBS Daytime soap opera The Young and the Restless, where she portrayed Isabella Braña from 2001 to 2003.[20] After leaving that show, she appeared in the Dick Wolf revival of Dragnet. She then starred in Señorita Justice, a poorly received direct-to-video film; and a television film, The Dead Will Tell.[21]

In 2003, Longoria was cast as Gabrielle Solis in the ABC comedy-drama Desperate Housewives. She later commented, "I think it's funny when people say I'm an overnight sensation, because I've been working at it for 10 years."[22] Shortly after her debut on Desperate Housewives, she starred in a direct-to-video film, Carlita's Secret, for which she was also co-producer.[23]

In 2006, she was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Performance by an Actress in a Television Series – Musical or Comedy, along with her co-stars in Desperate Housewives.[24] That year, she received the ALMA Award, and was named entertainer of the year.[25] She also starred opposite Michael Douglas and Kiefer Sutherland in the thriller The Sentinel (2006)—her first major role in a theatrical feature film—and played Sylvia in Harsh Times, starring Freddy Rodríguez and Christian Bale.[25]

In the 2000s, Longoria appeared in several high-profile advertising campaigns and numerous men's magazines, reaching No. 14 in the FHM "Sexiest Women 2008" poll. She was also featured on the cover of various international women's magazines, including Vogue, Marie Claire and Harper's Bazaar.[26] People en Español listed her among its "Most Beautiful People" for 2003.[27] She continues to be included in lists of Hollywood's Most Beautiful. She was listed as No. 1 in Maxim's Hottest Female Stars of 2005 and 2006, the first woman to top the list in two consecutive years.[28] She was ranked No. 9 in the magazine's Hot 100 of 2007 list.[29] In honor of Maxim's 100th issue in 2006, she was featured on a 75-by-110-foot (23 by 34 m) vinyl mesh replica of its January 2005 cover located in a Clark County, Nevada desert.[30] More recently, she was ranked No. 14 of People's Most Beautiful 2011.[31] People named her one of 2012 Most Beautiful at Every Age.[32]

In March 2008, Longoria opened the restaurant Beso (which means "kiss" in Spanish) in Hollywood, along with partner and celebrity chef Todd English. The restaurant is located on Hollywood Boulevard and is accompanied by Kiss, a Victorian-themed nightclub on the floor above.[53] The Hollywood Beso was scheduled to be the focus of a pilot episode for a tentative reality series called Beso: Waiting on Fame, to air on VH1 in late 2010.[54] In 2009, Longoria and various investor-partners opened a Beso restaurant, with a nightclub called Eve above it, in the Crystals retail and entertainment district of CityCenter in Las Vegas.[53]

Personal lifeEdit


Longoria was married to actor Tyler Christopher, star of General Hospital, from 2002 to 2004.[102]

Longoria met Tony Parker, then the point guard for the San Antonio Spurs, in November 2004. On November 30, 2006, the couple became engaged.[103] They married in a civil service on July 6, 2007, at a Paris city hall. They had a Catholic wedding ceremony at the Saint-Germain l'Auxerrois Church in Paris on July 7, 2007.[104] On November 17, 2010, Longoria filed for divorce from Parker in Los Angeles, citing "irreconcilable differences".[105] In the divorce petition, Longoria requested that her maiden name be restored. She also sought spousal support from Parker.[106] The couple had a prenuptial agreement that was signed in June 2007, a month before their wedding, and amended two years later in June 2009.[107]

Longoria told her friend Mario Lopez she had discovered hundreds of text messages from another woman on her husband's phone.[108] Extra identified the other woman as Erin Barry, the then-wife of Brent Barry, Parker's former teammate, and revealed that the Barrys also were in the process of divorcing.[109] In light of the divorce, Longoria canceled her scheduled appearance at the 2010 American Music Awards.[108] On November 19, 2010, Parker filed for divorce from Longoria in Bexar County, Texas,[110] on the grounds of "discord or conflict of personalities", thus establishing a legal battle over where the divorce case would be heard. Unlike Longoria's divorce petition, Parker's did not mention a prenuptial agreement and claimed that the parties would "enter into an agreement for the division of their estate".[111] The divorce was finalized in Texas on January 28, 2011, the same day Longoria's lawyer filed papers to dismiss her Los Angeles petition. Longoria would later comment, "I didn't realize it at the time with Tony, but I had become my own version of a desperate housewife."[112]

On December 13, 2015, Longoria reported her engagement to Mexican businessman José Antonio "Pepe" Bastón Patiño,[113] then the president of Televisa, the largest media company in Latin America.[114][115] Bastón and Longoria met on a blind date arranged by a mutual friend in Mexico City; at the time, Bastón did not know who Longoria was and originally declined the invitation to meet her because of his busy schedule.[116] The couple were married in Mexico on May 21, 2016.[117][118]

On December 19, 2017, it was reported that Longoria was pregnant with her first child.[119] She gave birth to a son in 2018 [120][121] and named him Santiago "Santi" Enrique Bastón.[122]


According to research done in 2010 by Harvard professor and Faces of America host Henry Louis Gates Jr., Longoria's oldest identifiable Spanish immigrant ancestor is her ninth great-grandfather, Lorenzo Suárez de Longoria (b. Oviedo, 1592), who was a colonist of the Viceroyalty of New Spain (modern-day Mexico) in 1603. His family was based in a small village called Llongoria, Belmonte de Miranda, Asturias, Spain. Longoria is the Castellanized form of this Asturian-language surname.

In 1767, her seventh great-grandfather received almost 4,000 acres (16 km2) of land along the Rio Grande in a land grant from King Charles III of Spain. The family retained this land for more than a century. After the US-Mexican border was moved southwards in the aftermath of the Mexican–American War, the land ended up on the American side of the border. Her family had to deal with the influx of United States settlers following the Mexican–American War and the American Civil War.[123]

According to DNA testing, Longoria's overall genetic ancestry is 70% European, 27% Asian and Indigenous, and 3% African.[124] After a computer compared the DNA results of Gates's dozen guests, tests showed that she is genetically related to cellist Yo-Yo Ma, who is of Chinese heritage.[124] Since women have two X chromosomes and no Y chromosome, Longoria did not inherit her father's Y-DNA, but she did inherit her mother's mitochondrial DNA (genetic information passed from mother to child). Longoria's mtDNA belongs to the Haplogroup A2, making her a direct descendant of a Native American woman, a Maya from the territory of Mexico long before it was Mexico. Her ancestors include many other Maya on both sides of her family.[125][126]

Longoria identifies as a "Texican"—a Mexican-American Texan.[125]
