Eva Longoria has worked with a lot of big stars – and experience has made her picky about who she collaborates with in Hollywood.
"Life's so short," the actress, 37, told PEOPLE Monday. "You should be surrounded by people who make each other better people."
One of her favorite folks to work with, she says, is George Lopez, 51, who happens to be her co-host at the Latin community's ALMA Awards, airing Sept. 21.
"We're in a stage in our lives where we've done a lot in our careers and we work with people we want to work with," the former Desperate Housewives star says of herself and Lopez.

Talk about a political party!
Eva Longoria mixed and mingled with Democratic National Convention attendees at a Got Your 6 event in Charlotte, N.C., on Wednesday night.
The Desperate Housewives star posed for photos on the red carpet, sharing her political views with the press. She also spoke about the importance of supporting Got Your 6, which aims to bridge the gap between military personnel and citizens by aiding in the reintegration of returning veterans into society.
During the event, Flo Rida performed all of his hits, including "Whistle", for the crowd of celebrities, delegates and democratic supporters.
Longoria teased the rapper-singer about his patriotic attire and joked about borrowing his American flag scarf for her speech on Thursday.

On and off since their initial split in March, Eva Longoria and Eduardo Cruz recently stopped by Zuma Miami, where they met up for a brief lunch.
But the rocky pair seemed anything but lovey-dovey during the outing.
"They had little to no interaction at all with each other," an onlooker tells PEOPLE. "The lunch was far from romantic."
But still, they managed to share their dishes, which included yellowtail sashimi, a spicy yellowtail roll, shiitake mushroom and sea bass sashimi.
Her relationship with Cruz aside, the source says Longoria, who kept her sunglasses on the whole time, was "very cordial to the staff."

Victoria Beckham wasn't the only one celebrating when daughter Harper took her first steps recently – Eva Longoria, Harper's godmother, also got to share in the excitement.
"I was in L.A. [when Harper took her first steps]," Longoria, 37, told PEOPLE at Lay's "Do Us a Flavor" contest in New York Friday. "I saw the Tweet, but Victoria had emailed me a picture earlier."
Longoria also celebrated Harper's first birthday with the Beckhams in L.A. before they flew off to London.

Desperate Housewives is over. For longtime fans of the ABC comedy-drama, the two-hour finale flew by.
The first half concluded the preposterous murder trial against Bree (Marcia Cross). It was sad to see Bree led off to the death chamber manacled and in an unflattering orange jumper. Am I kidding? As narrator Mary Alice would say: Yesssssss …
The second half saw the death of one of the best-loved residents of Wisteria Lane, plus a wedding and a birth. If you're at all up on the season you know who did what of which. In other words, it was sweet, it was pat, it was all a bit anticlimactic – but why wouldn't it be after all this time?
Here are some moments – none of them spoilers – that made the farewell classically Desperate.

Desperate Housewives, ABC's groundbreaking dramedy, came to a close Sunday night after eight breezily entertaining seasons full of gossip, backstabbing, friendships and frenemy-ships, and many, many instances of rigor mortis setting in. Here are five of Wisteria Lane's most treasured snapshots – but do add your fondest memories in the comments below:
The mystery of Mary Alice, season 1, Oct. 3, 2004: The series hooked me right from its opener: Wisteria Street resident Mary Alice Williams (Brenda Strong), the show's narrator, tells us in a soothing, almost sunny tone how one day she reached into the top of her closet, took down a revolver and shot herself dead. Even though the mystery of her suicide was eventually solved, Mary Alice has remained the voice of the show ever since, commenting with compassion and sometimes rather heavy irony on the adventures of Susan, Bree, Lynette and Gabrielle. I would have gone for a cheap stunt and had the occasional guest narrator – Joy Behar, for instance – but Mary Alice's voice, even more than the tidy lawns and slickly painted houses, was always the real, unifying vision of Wisteria Lane.

With Desperate Housewives wrapping up, Eva Longoria is moving on to new projects, some cuddlier than others.
The actress is the new spokesmodel for British cat food company Sheba, starring in the brand's seductive new ad campaign alongside a gray cat named Nick.
"[He's the] best costar I've ever had," Longoria says of her feline friend in a behind-the-scenes video. "He's really cute and cuddly and loving. Of course, having cat food in my hand helps."
