Eva Longoria says she’s feeling sexier than ever as she approaches 40.

The former Desperate Housewives actress celebrated her 39th birthday at an Ocean Drive magazine party in Miami with friends and her boyfriend Jose ‘Pepe’ Antonio Baston, and revealed she isn’t worried as she gets closer to the big 4-0 next year, reported People.

“I had no idea what was happening 10 years ago, I was in a big vortex of madness,” said the actress.

Eva said she feels more attractive now than she did then.

She said: “I feel more intelligent about a lot of other things than 10 years ago. So that makes me feel sexy.”

Eva has been dating Jose, the president of Latin American media company Televisa, since last year.
