"It means the world to me that Zoe’s here, but more importantly that we get to celebrate and honor and applaud all of the work she does for women everywhere, " Longoria expressed, with Saldana by her side. "For me and the foundation, we celebrate Latinas. Young Latina’s can’t be what they can’t see, and so to be able to see somebody like Zoe is so important to me because this night’s more about what my foundation does. It’s about celebrating what everybody’s doing in our community and putting a big, loud spotlight on it, a big loud voice, because there’s so much overlapping with what we’re doing."
"It’s important to connect the dots and it’s important for us to have this sisterhood and uplift each other and applaud each other," she added.
Both Longoria and Saldana had been busy these past weeks, campaigning and encouraging Latinxs to vote.
"We just recently came back from campaigning together and we were having so much fun that we forgot it was work," Longoria said. Meanwhile, Longoria also shared that as a new mom she was going to Saldana for baby advice. "She has boys and I have a boy, and so it’s perfect!"
Longoria had previously gushed to ET about how obsessed and in love she was with her baby Santiago.
