Eva Longoria Won’t Cast Her 5-Year-Old Son in Movies

Eva Longoria has categorically rejected the notion of teaming up professionally with her 5-year-old son Santiago, and the reasons are as hilarious as they come.

While basking in the glory of her latest Disney+ creation, “Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day,” the 48-year-old actress spilled the beans on why she vetoed the idea of casting her little one – a decision that has more to do with his diva tendencies than his lack of acting chops.

Picture this: The suggestion pops up, “Wouldn’t it be great if we just use your son?” To which Eva, with the finesse of a comedy queen, retorts, “Absolutely not.” Why, you ask? Well, according to Eva, her pint-sized partner-in-crime is a certified diva. He’s not just any diva; he’s the kind who refuses to cooperate, laughs in the face of taking notes, and has a PhD in talking back. Move over, Hollywood, Santiago is in town, and he’s not here to play nice on set!

Although the dynamic duo won’t be gracing our screens together anytime soon, Eva assures us that Santiago is a dedicated fan of her work. The adorable tyke can’t get enough of Eva’s 2019 masterpiece, “Dora and the Lost City of Gold,” where she played none other than Dora the Explorer’s mother. But here’s the twist – Santiago, being the inquisitive mind that he is, regularly throws Eva for a loop by questioning why Dora doesn’t swing by their place for tea.

“He loves Dora,” Eva chuckled, revealing Santiago’s burning question, “Wait, you’re her mom?” Cue the confusion. Clearly, Santiago is on a quest for answers in the whimsical world of cinema, where moms can be action heroes, and Dora may just pop over for a playdate. Oh, the mysteries of showbiz through the eyes of a 5-year-old!
