Eva Longoria refuses to wear some of her 'Desperate Housewives' costumes because they are too sexy.
The petite actress - who is married to basketball star Tony Parker - has arguments on the set of her hit US TV show because the outfits they want her character Gabrielle because they are so revealing.
She said: "I'm always saying, 'Isn't that a bit much?' to some of the lingerie. So I try on a lot of lingerie and I veto a lot.
"I have said no to some very cheeky showing underwear. I do not like to do that. And I've said no to different bras that do different things."
Eva, 33, also revealed she is thrilled producers have made Gabrielle more frumpy - as the new season of the hit US TV show flashes to five years in the future - because it meant she could have a break from her strict diet and exercise regime.
She said: "I love it. I come into hair and make up now and it's 10 minutes instead of two hours. It's way more fun to play frumpy. Then you can focus on story and character as opposed to having to always look great. I feel like she's dealing with a lot of real issues."
