Desperate Housewives star Eva Longoria 'ugly' childhood
'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria has revealed she was such an ugly child her family joked she must have been adopted or switched at the hospital.
Sexy Eva, who plays the adulterous Gabrielle in the hit TV show, says her three older sisters used to refer to her as "the dark, ugly one".
The Texas belle confessed: "It bothered me when I was little. People used to walk up to my mum and say, 'Your daughters are all so beautiful.and who is this?' as they then pointed at me."
But Eva started blossoming in her teenage years and was entered into beauty contests, where she was taught how to make the most out of herself.
The sexy star said she was told how to use push-up bras and tape to "come up with so many ways to create boobs".
The 29-year-old now claims she is in the best shape of her life and even her mother doesn't mind her stripping on screen because she is no longer ashamed of the way her daughter looks.
She added in an interview with Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper : "I love the womanly figure that my body's becoming. It's more than the young, tight body I used to have. My mum thinks it's great. She's like, 'I created that'.''
