Eva Longoria: Dieting's the pits

Eva Longoria feels more beautiful when she wears a Victoria Beckham creation.

The American actress shot to fame playing super glamorous Gabrielle Solis in Desperate Housewives. She's just as polished in real life and always stuns on the red carpet. However, staying in shape isn't always fun for the actress.

"There is no secret, it's diet and exercise and I hate it. And the older you get the harder it gets," Eva sighed on British TV show Lorraine. "There are days - months - where I go, 'Oh my God, nothing's fitting right,' and then there's months where I really get after it."

Eva, 39, looked gorgeous as she hosted the Global Gift Gala in London last night, where she wore a black Victoria Beckham gown and clutch bag.

She was joined by fashion mogul Victoria, as well as Ricky Martin and Nicole Scherzinger.

"Every time I put on one of her dresses I definitely feel more beautiful," Eva said of her designer pal.

Despite their close friendship Eva says Victoria's passion for fashion has not rubbed off on her, and she has no desires to start her own line.

"Oh god no!" she laughed. "This is her life, I mean she lives and breathes fashion and I don't, you know. She'll tell me what to put on and I'll wear it."

The two women are also close to hair stylist Ken Paves, and when the three get together food is top of their priority list.

"It actually gets messy because all we do is go to Victoria's house and eat. Our version of fun is, 'Woo we're taking our shoes off, into our pyjamas,'" she giggled.
