Eva Longoria Talks Harper Beckham and Mark Sanchez
Victoria Beckham wasn't the only one celebrating when daughter Harper took her first steps recently – Eva Longoria, Harper's godmother, also got to share in the excitement.
"I was in L.A. [when Harper took her first steps]," Longoria, 37, told PEOPLE at Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" contest in New York Friday. "I saw the Tweet, but Victoria had emailed me a picture earlier."
Longoria also celebrated Harper's first birthday with the Beckhams in L.A. before they flew off to London.
As for the rumors that Longoria is dating New York Jets quarterback Mark Sanchez, the Desperate Housewives star put to rest any gossip. "We're just friends," she said.
The two had been seen together on several date-like outings, including a supermarket trip near Sanchez's Bedminster, N.J., home. But, as Longoria puts it: "I am happy where I am in my life. Very happy."
She also mentioned that she'll be rooting for good friend Serena Williams during the Summer Games, adding that watching tennis on TV is one of her favorite pastimes. Williams recently won her fifth women's singles title at Wimbledon, and is reportedly resting her back before competing in the London Olympics.
Eva Longoria is sexy and chic on the cover of Lucky‘s September 2012 issue, on newsstands August 7.
Here is what the 37-year-old For Greater Glory actress had to share with the mag:
On her biggest pet peeve: “I think it’s important that people who are politically active understand the other side as well. I just read the Ronald Reagan biography. When you’re fighting for social justice, one of my biggest pet peeves is speaking out of ignorance.”
On the difference between working in television and movies: “On a television show, you basically make a movie a week. Movies take three months—it’s crazy. They’re so slow, it’s like vacation to me.”
On her friend Victoria Beckham: “[She] is so funny! And I have such appreciation for her style.” She also shared that they wear the same size so she will often borrow garments directly from Victoria‘s personal closet!
FYI: Eva is wearing a Calvin Klein blazer, a DKNY tank top, and Express shorts on the cover.
