Eva Longoria cried when she met her idol, Oprah Winfrey.
The 'Desperate Housewives' actress says she has been inspired by the chat show host for most of her life and felt extremely emotional when she finally got to meet her.
She told Arena magazine: "I met Oprah recently - it was just incredible. She is one of my idols so I was in tears when I met her."
Like her idol, Eva, 31, has become involved with social and political issues and is a passionate campaigner against climate change.
She said: "People are asleep about the harm we are doing to the world - and it is not even that far into the future. It's going to affect my children. Being involved in politics is fun, but quite a challenge."
