Eva Longoria: I Won't Be Tapping Beyonce Booty

by at .

Well, that rumor was fun while it lasted.

In light of numerous gossip rags telling Eva Longoria she'd be shooting a few lesbian scenes on screen with Beyonce Knowles, the Desperate Houswives had to come out and quell such talk.

"Stop the madness," Longoria said to People magazine about the false reports that she and Knowles will play a couple in an adaptation of Sarah Waters's love story Tipping the Velvet. "Believe me, I would love to work with Beyonce one day. She's so talented. But this is definitely not something we are doing together. It's completely and absolutely not true."

Longoria says the rumor started about a week ago â€" before she had ever even met Knowles. Many of the false reports also alleged that Sofia Coppola had been tapped to direct the film.

"Beyonce and I just did the L'Oreal event a couple of days ago and we were like, 'What is the deal?'" Longoria said. "What makes me crazy is that there are quotes out there, quotes from me saying it's true. But in fact it's not true. And (there are) quotes of Beyonce saying it's about time we had a female Brokeback Mountain. And we're like, we never said that."

The Hollywood Gossip pleads the fifth on printing such nonsense. We'd prefer to distract Eva by asking her about tonight's Dancing with the Stars finale and the chances of her friend, Mario Lopez.

Up next for Knowles, at least, is a starring role in the film Dreamgirls, which opens next month. It co-stars Eddie Murphy and Jamie Foxx.

Eva Longoria Quotes

Anybody in their right mind is for Obama. [As for Sarah Palin], I like her. I think she's smart and intelligent. I don't think I would want her running the country...I'm not going to vote for her because she's a woman. We disagree on a lot of issues and that's why I support Obama and Biden.

If I have two hours before I have to go to set, I will run to the spa and get a massage and sit in the jacuzzi.
