Latina hottie Eva Longoria may be best known for playing one of the titular spoiled brats on the TV series Desperate Housewives. But she’s not just another pretty face in Hollywood. Between posing in skimpy lingerie for the cover of GQ and ranking high on People magazine’s “Most Beautiful” list, Longoria has also taken the time to support artistic and political causes. She recently selected Miami photographer Mary Beth Koeth’s portrait as inspiration for a short film in Canon’s Project Imaginat10n competition, for example. And her recent work, such as director Damian Lee’s A Dark Truth, addresses environmental causes and even threatens to take down The Man.
A Dark Truth , also starring Andy Garcia and Forest Whitaker, is the story of a former CIA operative who travels to South America when a whistleblower hires him to collect evidence of a massacre her company carried out in a village there. Chaos swirls as the job pits the protagonist against military forces, activist opposition, and an ever-decreasing water supply.
