Eva Longoria : ‘Yes I Wear Glasses!’

Eva Longoria is seeing red over claims made in an Australian newspaper that she is a serial sell-out who does not actually wear glasses.

Eva Longoria has posted an angry open letter to Sydney Morning Herald Lifestyle journalist Jenna Clarke on Instagram in response to Clarke’s article on questionable celebrity endorsements, using Longoria’s recent trip Down Under to promote a Specsavers campaign as a key example.

The ‘Desperate Housewives’ star was accused by Clarke of being ‘a serial offender when it comes to selling out in a not so subtle way.’ Clarke claims that in 2012 Longoria was the ambassador for a cat food, ‘which would have been a great brand alignment had she owned a cat.’

But the final straw reportedly involved an accusation that Longoria promoted Specsavers despite the internet offering few images of her wearing glasses.

Longoria didn’t pull any punches repeating comments she made in several Australian interviews in days before Clarke’s article went to print, stating she started wearing glasses in 2013 when she noticed her vision blurring while studying her Master’s Degree.

The actress told the SMH writer the reason her ‘lazy journalist research of ‘googling’ didn’t turn up more pictures of me on the ‘red carpet”, was ‘because I don’t need glasses to see far, only to READ. So unless you are in bed with me at night, or in the morning at my breakfast table reading the morning newspaper, then you probably wont find a ‘paparazzi’ shot of me’.

The letter continues: ‘And sorry I haven’t worn glasses on a ‘red carpet’ Jenna, but shockingly I am not usually READING a book on the red carpet!. We have plenty of photos to show you of me USING READING GLASSES like when I testified in Congress for Women and Small Business in 2013 (photo attached) as I had to READ some documents in front of me’.

Along with the letter, Longoria posted three pictures of her wearing or holding her reading glasses.
