Eva Longoria is Maxim’s 2014 Woman of the Year, gracing the magazine’s January/February cover.

The honor is  ”especially awesome after how long it’s been since my first cover,” the actress says.

Longoria continues, “I’ve had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years… When someone sees the cover of this issue, they’re going to say,‘¡Que rico!’… Say it when something is really good.”

The “Desperate Housewives” star tells the magazine that she believes “the definition of sexy constantly changes,” and says some might be “surprised” to find out she’s a bit of a domestic goddess.

“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,” says Longoria.

But Longoria notes that her varied interests date back to her days as a teen, explaining, “Back in high school I really was the chameleon, too.”

“I got along with the honors math club, then I would go to cheerleading practice, and then I was a band geek as well,” she reveals.
