Los Angeles, Jan 7: Contrary to her "Desperate Housewives" character, actress Eva Longoria says she is domestic in reality.
The actress, who was recently named as Maxim's woman of the year, sports a sexy avatar on the magazine's cover. But there's a different reality to her, she said, reports people.com.
"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 flour in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image," Maxim magazine quoted Longoria as saying.
The 38-year-old is known for her roles on TV show "The Young and the Restless" and film "Harsh Times".
