Hillary Clinton's star-studded fundraiser at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles was the hottest ticket in town on Monday, and Eva Longoria revealed to ET just how much she sacrificed to be there.

"I just came back from the honeymoon for this event," Longoria told ET's Denny Directo.

The Telenovela star tied the knot with husband Jose Antonio Baston in Valle de Bravo, Mexico, on May 21 and subsequently took off for an exotic honeymoon that included a stop in Cambodia.

"I told my husband we've got to get back for the California primaries," she said. "He was like, 'What?' but he understood."

Longoria wasn't the only one to make the event a priority. Cher, John Legend with wife Chrissy Teigen, Stevie Wonder, Magic Johnson, Shonda Rhimes, Christina Aguilera and Ricky Martin all showed their support for Clinton.

"I'm singing with Ricky tonight! 'Livin' La Vida Loca,'" Longoria joked.

While she didn't get to sing with the pop star at the fundraiser, the 41-year-old actress did perform with Martin at her wedding, which brought her career full circle.

"I was an extra in the 'She Bangs' video," Longoria revealed. "They wouldn't even let me get close to Ricky. They were like, 'Ma'am, we will fire you.'"
