Eva Longoria Parker either has a very weird sense of humor, or she’s got some serious body issues. The skinny actress apparently thinks she’s fat!
Over the summer, Eva gained a few pounds for her role as Gabrielle on “Desperate Housewives“, and everyone assumed she was pregnant (because she had what appeared to be a tiny baby bump). Now Eva talks about her weight gain (what weight gain?) in the November 2008 issue of Allure magazine.
On her fuller figure:
“I stopped working out and gained about seven pounds over the summer, which is a lot for a small person. Every magazine is tearing me apart … I never went up a size. I just got rounder. I’m still a size 0.”
On growing up thinking she wasn’t beautiful:
“My nickname was Prieta Fea, which means ‘Ugly Dark one’ in Spanish. I didn’t have a boyfriend. My sisters were so mean to me. They used to say I was adopted, and ‘we picked you up at the hospital. You were the extra baby that day.”
