Eva Longoria graces the cover of Maxim after being announced as their woman of the year.
US Weekly reports that publishers of the magazine announced Eva Longoria as the Woman of the Year on Jan. 6.
Longoria, who topped Maxim's Hot 100 list two times in 2005 and 2006, spoke about her relationship with the magazine.
"It's especially awesome after how long it's been since my first cover," Longoria said. "I've had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years."
Longoria recently earned her Masters Degree in Chicano studies from California State University in May.
E! News reports that Longoria had to reschedule her interview for the magazine in order to finish working on her thesis.
"My brain can't jump that fast from a Maxim interview to a thesis!" Longoria said. "Back in high school I really was the chameleon, too. I got along with the honors math club, then I would go to cheerleading practice, and then I was a band geek as well."
The issue hits stores on Jan. 17.
