It's a language of love, so it's only natural Eva Longoria would want to learn French. There's just one problem:
Her France-raised fiancÃ©, Tony Parker, doesn't wanna teach it to her.
"He's terrible. He always wants to speak English," Longoria told People magazine Thursday while in London to open the annual Harrods Winter Sale. "I try to remind him but he always forgets and says it's easier and faster to speak English, but I want to understand."
So the actress decided to master French the hard way â€" in a classroom.
"I couldn't speak French before Tony. All I knew how to say was, 'My name is Eva.' I went to a Berlitz French school this summer, doing about five hours a day."
The Desperate Housewives star seems as determined to learn new words as we are for Ali Lohan to remain young and innocent.
Longoria spent Christmas in her home state of Texas and will be back in the U.S. for a quiet Dec. 31. "Nothing is planned for New Year's Eve," she said. "Tony plays that date so I'll be watching, sitting at a Spurs' game."
She continues shooting Desperate Housewives until April before taking a new film role.
"I'm picking my next summer movie as we speak. I don't know what it will be yet. I've read a lot of scripts and I am amazed at how many movies will be made next year. I'm a big fan of the romantic comedy and would love to do another one."
She will NOT, however, be getting it on with Beyonce on screen, as rumors had it. Sorry, guys.
