Eva Longoria knows what she likes.

On Monday, the Telenovela actress, 40, did a Twitter Q&A with fans, chatting about everything from Desperate Housewives memories to the foods she can’t live without.

“My favorite food is Mexican food. Anything Mexican. Tacos, guacamole, enchiladas, tacos, tacos…,” she said. “I like cooking it, too.”

Unsurprisingly, when asked if she could live anywhere else in the world, Longoria chose Mexico City, though her response had less to do with tacos and more to do with her fiancé, José Antonio Baston, who proposed to her in December 2015.

“I would live in Mexico City, because that’s where my future husband is. Or Miami, because that’s where he is also,” she said. “But my work is in L.A., so I have to be based in L.A. But if work were not an option, definitely anywhere he is.”

Aside from Mexico, Longoria’s favorite travel destinations are Bora Bora and Sydney, Australia.

The most compelling part of the Q&A? When a Twitter user asked her the first thing she does in the morning.

“Pee,” she said. “I do! I get up and pee. Well, actually, I do the sign of the cross, and thank god for another day. Then I pee.”

Whenever the actress doesn’t have access to tacos, she relies on her life philosophy to keep her motivated.

“I’m an optimist. I love life. You only get one shot, so you just try to live to the fullest.”

I’ll never forget the interview I read when she said it was hard for her to break into the industry because she was too pretty for most roles. This irrelevant 40 year old going on her third marriage needs to go away. Perhaps humble herself to the fact that she isn’t “all that” as she perceives herself to be, then go away.
