Eva Longoria Parker refused to pay millions of dollars for a luxury beachside property in California - because she already has enough homes across the U.S.
The "Desperate Housewives" star and husband Tony Parker own sprawling mansions in Los Angeles and Texas, where the basketball player is based.
The couple, who wed in 2007, wanted to expand their portfolio with a property in Malibu, California - but opted for a tiny beachfront home instead of a massive mansion.
She tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "We bought it to get away from L.A. It's our sanctuary and we love it. It's tiny and really quaint and the view is insane."
"I have a belief that there is such a thing as too much and the last thing we need is another big house. There's no need to over-extend yourself."
"I just don't like having so many things. It begins to clutter your life. This is very enjoyable and low maintenance and it's truly a gift to spend time here."
Eva - who is married to basketball star Tony Parker - said: "It's really interesting the camaraderie that athletes' wives have, because they understand the schedule, the travelling and the distance. Victoria and I are in similar situations when it comes to our husbands. I admire the wife and mother that she is and, at the same time, this glamorous and beautiful businesswoman. That's what I aspire to be."
Eva is also a huge fan of Victoria's fashion label and thinks she's a very accomplished designer.
She told Britain's Hello! magazine: "They're my favourite dresses out right now! They are beautifully created, so classic yet modern. She's really hit the nail on the head. You can tell she's not another celebrity doing a clothing line, she is fashion and knows what she is talking about."
