Eva Longoria is certainly inspiring. Not only is she a fantastic actress (Desperate Housewives wouldn't be the same without her!), but she's also an author and activist. Having run her own restaurant, Beso, from 2008 - 2011, she later released her cookbook Eva's Kitchen: Cooking with Love for Family and Friends last year to further share her passion for food. In addition, she's a dedicated activist. As the founder of Eva's Heroes, a charity that helps developmentally disabled children, she also serves as spokesperson for PADRES contra cancer (PARENTS against cancer) and supports numerous other causes, leading her to be named Philanthropist of the Year in 2009 by The Hollywood Reporter.
