A great regular at the Cannes Film Festival, it is no surprise that Eva Longoria made the trip to the south of France to attend the 76th edition which is being held this year from May 16 to 27, 2023… But the one who already made more than remarkable appearances on the Croisette, she didn’t just come to strike a pose dressed in divine dresses in front of the flashes of the photographers. Indeed, the eternal interpreter of “Gabriel Solis” in the cult series “Desperate Housewife” was above all present in Cannes to participate in one of the most important discussions on the place of women in the world of cinema, the “Women in Motion “.
An event during which the American actress, accompanied by Professor Starcy L. Smith, played the card of transparency by recounting having experienced several difficulties during the staging of the film “Flamin’Hot”. The first feature film she signs (a film devoted to the manufacture of extremely popular spicy chips across the Atlantic, Ed).
And for good reason, during this project, Eva Longoria confided that she had felt several “weights” on her shoulders. “The weight of being a female director”, but also that of being a Latin American woman.

“We don’t really have the right to a second chance”
“You don’t really have the right to a piece of the cake as a woman. Finally, my film was not made with a small budget: we were far from 100 million dollars, but it was not a 2 million film either. But when was the last blockbuster directed by a person of South American origin? It was 20 years ago. You can’t just have one movie every 20 years.”she said during this event.
And to add: “The problem is, if my movie fails, in Hollywood they’ll be like, ‘Oh, Latino stories don’t work…and the directors can’t handle it.’ So we don’t really have the right to a second chance. A white man can flop 200 million and do it again, not me. That is the problem. I will have only one chance to succeed, and therefore I will have to work twice as much, twice as fast, and for half the price”. A great franchise.
