Like Jennifer Aniston and Cameron Diaz, Eva Longoria has faced constant pregnancy speculation since getting married in 2016. The obsession with celebs' weights, bodies and babies is nothing new. But the frequency certainly doesn't excuse the invasive rumors.
The most recent baby bump reports went viral when she showed off her newfound curves in a loose flowery dress during her trip to Greece. The rumors grew so loud that Longoria's rep felt compelled to tell Us Weekly that Longoria is not pregnant.
This isn't the first time Longoria has faced false pregnancy reports. Back in April fans speculated that she was pregnant when they saw a series of photos taken on a boat. But Longoria maintained she had just gained weight.
"I saw some pictures of myself really fat on a boat and I have to tell you all I did was eat cheese," she replied. "Everybody is saying I'm pregnant and I'm not. I was just lactose intolerant apparently. I just had to share because my whole family is calling me asking me if I'm pregnant. Yes, I look pregnant, but that was just a ball of cheese in my stomach...everybody gets bloated."
Longoria had a similar story in 2008, telling reporters that she was "just fat." She clarified that she had gained the weight for her Desperate Housewives role.
Unfortunately, Longoria isn't the only celeb to constantly fend off pregnancy rumors. Sometimes it seems Jennifer Aniston has felt the harsh glare of the spotlight more than anyone in Hollywood.
"I think the problem is the tabloids and the gossip columns taking the human body and putting it in a category," Aniston said. "They’re either fat-shaming, or body-shaming, or childless-shaming. It’s a weird obsession that people have and I don’t understand exactly why they need to take people who are out there to entertain you, and rip them apart and bully them? Why are we teaching young women this? It’s incredibly damaging."
