I recently wrote all about my night at the Glamour Reel Moments Premiere and mentioned that earlier that day I had also attended the Glamour and Clarisonic Em(power)ment luncheon for Glamour Reel Moments. It was a beautiful and intimate luncheon with the three actresses that are all making their directorial debuts. Those actress/directors are Eva Longoria, Zoe Saldana, and Olivia Wilde. The topic of conversation was women in film and the experience that each of these first time directors had while directing their short films. I chose two pieces from Eva Longoria’s interview, that I filmed myself, to share with you. I have to say, Eva looked absolutely radiant at the luncheon. I must add that the food was delicious and Clarisonic gave everyone who attended a Clarisonic Plus. Yay! Thanks Clarisonic.

Eva Longoria directed the short film “A Proper Send-Off” that was inspired by Glamour reader Jan Livingston Mokhtari. As I previously wrote, in my coverage of The Glamour Reel Moments Premiere, I found “A Proper Send-Off” to be very inspiring on the subject of breast cancer prevention. Jacinda Barrett, Sam Page and Victoria Smurfit are the stars of “A Proper Send-Off.” In this first exclusive video clip, Eva Longoria is talking about not having to “man up” as a female director.
Here, Eva is talking about directing an actual makeup artist (who was playing a makeup artist) in her short film, who had never acted before.
