The new year has just started, but Eva Longoria has already been named Maxim's 2014 Woman of the Year.

Longoria, 38, is featured in the January/February issue of the mens magazine.

Longoria has become well known not just for her on-screen roles, but as a producer and businesswoman.

She also heads up her charity, Eva's Heroes, and recently received her masters degree in Chicano Studies from Cal State Northridge.

Longoria spoke to People magazine after receiving the honor from Maxim.

"I've had a beautiful relationship with Maxim over all these years. When someone sees the cover of this issue, they're going to say, 'Que rico.' Say it when something is really good," she told the magazine. 

Longoria was named winner of Maxim's Hot 100 in 2005 and 2006.
