Eva Longoria Unveils Her Star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame

Eva Longoria celebrated a special career milestone on Monday morning as she saw her star unveiled on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

“What a dream come true today! Receiving my star on the Walk of Fame is an honor I can’t even believe I’m going to experience! Can’t wait to join all the legends and even more so, can’t wait for all of y’all to go and visit it!” the mom-to-be wrote on Instagram.

Some of her famous friends attended the ceremony, including Anna Faris, Ricky Martin, and Victoria Beckham. Fans were also treated to a Desperate Housewives reunion when Felicity Huffman showed up with husband William H. Macy.

Longoria said that this was the fulfillment of a dream she had 20 years ago. “I feel like I’m still a little girl from Corpus Christie, Texas who had a big dream – and big hair,” she said. “And I want to say as a woman and as a Latina I represent a lot of communities, and I want to tell all those communities that this isn’t my star, this is our star.”

Huffman also gave a tribute to Eva, saying, “Not because she’s raised over $40 million for charity, not because she’s an actress, a director, a producer, a philanthropist, a restaurateur, a filmmaker, a documentarian. No. But because she is kind and because she is hopeful. She is kind to everyone and she is hopeful for the world.”

Friends of Longoria sent their congratulatory messages on social media.

“I wish I could be there cheering you on!!! There in spirit! So so so proud,” Gina Rodriguez wrote in the Instagram comments section.

“Get it girl. You are a pioneer and you deserve the world,” Eiza González added.

“Congrats @EvaLongoria for your ⭐ on the Hollywood #WalkofFame,” Reese Witherspoon tweeted. “This woman is a superstar actress, producer, and director (not to mention soon-to-be-mama!), who is changing Hollywood w/everything she touches! Making pure gold, baby!”
