Eva Longoria has been named 2014's Woman of the Year by Maxim.

The Desperate Housewives star, who is the only woman to top the Maxim Hot 100 list twice in a row in 2005 and 2006, graces the cover of the January/February issue of the magazine.

She said of the honour: "It's especially awesome after how long it's been since my first cover. I've had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years. When someone sees the cover of this issue, they're going to say, '¡Que rico!' Say it when something is really good."

The actress opened up about her home life in an interview with the magazine, saying: "One thing people are usually surprised about when they get to know me is how domestic I am.

"So when you see the sexy Maxim cover and then you put it against me in an apron with flour in my hair, it takes a moment to reconcile that image."
