EVA Longoria survived her marriage break-up because she is a "strong" person.

The Desperate Housewives beauty insists she is a "survivor" and even though her relationship with Tony Parker ended in divorce in January she is "grateful" for the relationship and continues to believe in love.

She told the UK edition of HELLO! magazine: "I'm a very strong person. Personally I went through a lot, but jumping into my work helped me to get through my personal stuff.

"I'm a survivor, I believe in love, I believe that things are meant to be and that whatever happens is for a reason. I'm always grateful for the experiences that I have and I'm also very optimistic about what the future holds."

The 36-year-old actress believes she is looking and feeling better than ever, and her friends have been telling her she is "vibrant" like never before.

Eva added: "I'm at peace with myself, my spirituality, my friends, my family. I have this amazing life, so I'm really happy deep inside my heart.

"Everybody keeps telling me this past year that I'm a different person, that I look younger, more vibrant - I don't know what's happened, but I'll take it."
