Eva Longoria will have a hard time forgetting her time on the Croisette in 2019. Accustomed to the Cannes Film Festival, the actress had a very distressing misadventure that year. As Closer revealed to you, in fact, the star of Desperate Housewives suffered severe pain in the stomach on Sunday May 12 in his suite at the Martinez hotel. Eva Longoria was therefore taken care of at the Simone-Veil hospital and operated on the same afternoon. In the columns of the Public, this Friday, June 24, she remembered this nightmarish day. “During a walk with my son Santi, I started to suffer from stomach pain,” the actress first recalled.
“Around 3 a.m., I was in so much pain that I went to the emergency room, she said. Without anyone knowing, I was operated on in the wake of appendicitis. Supported quickly, Eva Longoria was able to be operated on in stride. But the doctors’ diagnosis could well have thwarted her plans and upset the agenda of the one who was present for L’Oréal, of which she was the muse. “When the doctors told me that I had to stay in hospital for three days, I replied: ‘Don’t count on it! I’m here to work'”, added Eva Longoria. Determined to appear on the red carpet at the Palais des Festivals, the actress found a solution … “So I found a nurse to follow me, an intravenous injection at hand”, she assured to our colleagues, three years later.
Eva Longoria: “I collapsed”
“The day after, I walked on the red carpet as if nothing had happened”, laughs the wife of José Antonio Bastón with our colleagues. On May 14, 2019, in fact, Eva Longoria caused a sensation on the Croisette. Neither seen nor known, she had then walked the red carpet of the Cannes Film Festival before the opening ceremony of the 72nd edition. Wearing a pink Alberta Ferretti slit dress, the actress proudly displayed her bare shoulders, while parts of her outfit were covered in rhinestones. But this choice was not without consequences… “Back in Los Angeles, I collapsed. I had to sleep for two weeks! Even today, I can’t believe that I did everything that,” she concluded.
