Eva Longoria feels guilty about success

Eva Longoria feels guilty about her wealth.
The 37-year-old actress involved with several charity projects and has her own organisation The Eva Longoria Foundation, which aims to help developmentally disabled children and women worldwide but particularly from the Latino community in the US.
When the former 'Desperate Housewives' star is carrying out her volunteering and charity work she admits she can't help but feel as though she has had too much good fortune in her life compared to those she is helping.
In an interview with The Sunday Times Magazine, Eva said: ''I've met farm workers who can't afford a home; children with special needs who are excluded from society; women from minority backgrounds with no access to education. And yes, when I meet them I do feel guilty.
''I'm well aware that I get paid a lot of money for what I do and every day I get to go home to my nice house. If you have a heart, of course you'll feel guilty in that situation.''
However, Eva uses her guilty emotions as motivation to help those less fortunate than herself.
She added: ''Guilty is no bad thing. It makes me aware. It keeps my eyes wide open.''
Eva's passion for charity work comes from the relationship she has with her older sister Elizabeth who was born with Down's syndrome and the work she has down for her and others with the chromosomal condition.
She revealed: ''When I was a kid, I was constantly volunteering, trying to make a difference - and not just for Elizabeth. It's now a part of who I am.''
