Eva Longoria dons a sophisticated look for Palm Springs Film Festival screening of her feature directorial debut Flamin’ Hot: ‘I love this festival!’

Eva Longoria Bastón donned a sophisticated look for the 35th annual Palm Springs International Film Festival screening of her feature directorial debut Flamin’ Hot inside the Mary Pickford Theater in Cathedral City, CA on Sunday.

The 48-year-old actor-director dressed her petite 5ft2in figure in a grey-long-sleeve top tucked into slightly darker grey trousers and black heels selected by stylist Maeve Reilly.

Eva’s longtime hairstylist/BFF Ken Paves coiffed her middle-parted, layered shoulder-length locks for the film festivities.

Make-up artist Elan Bongiorno brought out Bastón’s brows, lashes, and lip-lined nude pout.

‘I’m so excited. I love this festival. I came last year as one of the 10 directors to watch, but our film hadn’t come out yet,’ the ninth-generation Texan gushed.

‘So it was like, “You guys, wait until you see this film!” So to finally be here a year later with the film has been really fun. And to be with your colleagues and other filmmakers, it’s been really a treat for us and an honor.’

Eva was joined at the event by her actors Jesse Garcia and Annie Gonzalez, who portrayed the Frito-Lay janitor-turned-Flamin’ Hot Cheetos inventor Richard Montañez and his wife Judy Montañez.

Bastón and her cast members proceeded to watch their 98-minute biopic on the ‘biggest screen we’ve seen it on’ and took part in a post-screening Q&A.

Flamin’ Hot – now streaming on Hulu and Disney+ – currently has a 69% critic approval rating (out of 127 reviews) and an 88% audience score on Rotten Tomatoes.

The PG-13 movie also features Dennis Haysbert, Emilio Rivera, Tony Shalhoub, Matt Walsh, Pepe Serna, Bobby Soto, Jimmy Gonzales, Brice Gonzalez, Vanessa Martinez, Fabian Alomar, Mario Ponce, and Hunter Jones.

The Golden Globe nominee will next play travel writer and married mother-of-two Val Garcia in Marvin Lemus’ road trip remake of Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day – which will stream on Disney+ this year.

The Mexican-American adaptation of Judith Viorst’s 1972 children’s book also stars Thom Nemer, Cheech Marin, Cristo Fernández, Harvey Guillén, Jesse Garcia, Paulina Chávez, and Rose Portillo.

When asked why she didn’t cast her own five-year-old son Santiago Enrique Bastón in the leading role, Eva scoffed to E! News on January 4: ‘Absolutely not. He is such a diva. He’s not cooperative. Doesn’t take notes. Talks back.’

Bastón welcomed her first child during her seven-year marriage to third husband José ‘Pepe’ Bastón, whom she originally met at LACMA in 2013.

The L’Oréal Paris brand ambassador is also stepmother to the 55-year-old Televisa president’s three children – Natalia, 27; and twins Mariana & Jose, 20 – from his first marriage to Natalia Esperón.

Unfortunately, the former couple’s son Sebastian tragically died days after birth back in 2003.

Eva is also set to executive produce and star in Apple TV+’s six-episode dramedy Land of Women, which is based on Sandra Barneda’s 2014 novel.

Bastón portrays Gala, who is forced to flee her New York home with her mother and teenage daughter to Northern Spain after her husband implicates the family in financial improprieties

Ramón Campos and Gema R. Neira’s series – which will film in both English and Spanish – also features Santiago Cabrera, Gloria Muñoz, Amaury Nolasco, and Victoria Bazua.
