Desperate Housewives actor Eva Longoria (right) says she is a huge fan of late Hollywood star Marilyn Monroe because of her beauty and sex appeal. The 37-year-old actor also said that Monroe’s trademark blonde locks and red lips makes her the ultimate style icon, reported Contactmusic.

“Marilyn Monroe had that certain something. She never changed her look, and even after her death, that blonde hair with the red lips is still glamorous and beautiful,” Longoria was quoted saying.

The actor however added that Monroe’s beauty was not superficial. “It is also what she exuded — she was electrifying and you couldn’t wait to see what she did next and who she was with. She just had this essence about her that was beautiful,” she added.

Talking about her own beauty regime, Longoria said she hates sweating it out in the gym. “I hate working out. I hate cardio, I hate running, I hate the treadmill. I like weights, but the rest of it just has to be done. That is why I have a trainer — to make me do it. And I like to get out and about as much as possible, which is easier in Los Angeles, as the sun shines,” she said.
