Eva Longoria Reveals How She Helped Dubai Win Expo 2020
Winning acting awards and being one T'Town's most beautiful women isn't the only thing that Eva Longoria has going for herself. The dazzling actress revealed to Ahlan! that she is also a good luck charm, and may have been the reason that Dubai won the Expo 2020.
The star joked during a press conference held at Jumeirah Emirates Towers that she had a part to play in Dubai's succesful bid.
Eva, who is hosting the Global Gift Foundation and Global Gift Gala in Dubai, said: "Mabrook! I think I’m good luck, because I was in San Miguel de Allende in Mexico the day that they got announced as the best city in the world, so the whole city was celebrating, and I come here and you guys just won the bid. I think it’s me, I’m bringing luck around the world."
Longoria is a big fan of Dubai, but wants the world to view the Emirate as more than just a place with fantastic buildings and lavish environments. She said: "Everybody in the world looks to Dubai as this glamorous place, this beautiful jewel in the Middle East, and I want them to know Dubai for being philanthropic and giving and caring because I’ve met so many amazing people here that reflect that".
