The Hollywood Chamber of Commerce unveiled a star on Hollywood Boulevard to honor actress, activist, producer and director Eva Longoria ’13 (M.A. Chicana/o Studies).

The California State University, Northridge alumna received the 2,634th star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame on Monday, April 16. The star was dedicated in the category of Television and may be visited at 6906 Hollywood Boulevard.

“Well, it’s done! I’m officially available to be walked all over!” Longoria joked on Twitter. “What an honor! Thank you Hollywood Chamber of Commerce and everyone who helped make this happen.”

Longoria is a Golden Globe-nominated, Screen Actors Guild and American Latino Arts (ALMA) Award-winning actress, producer, director, entrepreneur, philanthropist and Desperate Housewives alum.

The proud Matador will also be Anna Faris’ and Eugenio Derbez’s co-star in the adaptation of the romantic comedy film Overboard set for wide theatrical release on May 4.

Of her experiences at CSUN with fellow Matadors, Longoria said, “I felt like I was in the presence of little geniuses. Going back to school at an older age, I was so far from my bachelor’s degree, so to walk into a classroom with 22-year-olds talking about … this theory and that theory.

“I was like, ‘I don’t remember this.’ I had to double back and freshen up on my own knowledge prior to walking in step with these wonderful, smart classmates.”
