Appearing on the popular Dr Oz Show, the 38 year-old said:
“I didn’t know I was depressed. I mean, I knew it was a sad moment in my life, but I wouldn’t categorize myself as depressed. I’m not that, I’m an optimist about life. Life didn’t work, moving on. I’m fine.”
She lost her appetite following the couple’s separation, Longoria explained. “That’s probably the time I got the most compliments because I was so skinny. I was not eating. I was depressed. I was sad. My diet was coffee. So people kept saying, ‘You look amazing. Divorce agrees with you,’ And I was like, ‘I don’t feel good. I have no energy’.”
Longoria married the French basketball player, seven years her junior, in 2007 but filed for divorce in November 2010 citing ‘irreconcilable differences’. The actress also requesting the restoration of her maiden name. The split was finalised the following year.
