Eva Longoria: Maxim's Woman of the Year 2014!

Eva Longoria is super sexy in just a white tank top for the cover of Maxim‘s January/February 2014 issue, on newsstands January 17.

Here is what the 38-year-old actress, named the Woman of the Year, had to share with the mag:

On receiving Maxim‘s big honor: “It’s especially awesome after how long it’s been since my first cover. I’ve had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years.”

On rescheduling this interview to present her thesis: “Yeah, I’m getting my master’s degree. I was like, ‘My brain can’t jump that fast from a Maxim interview to a thesis!’ Back in high school I really was the chameleon, too. I got along with the honors math club, then I would go to cheerleading practice, and then I was a band geek as well.”

On her guilty pleasure that helps her unwind: “Cooking. One thing people are usually surprised about when they get to know me is how domestic I am. So when you see the sexy Maxim cover and then you put it against me in an apron with î our in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image.”
