London, April 05: 'Desperate Housewives' star Eva Longoria helped singer Sheryl Crow avoid the paparazzi at the opening of her new Hollywood restaurant Beso by offering the reporters gathered outside free tacos.
Crow wanted to attend the event only if she would be left alone by the press. So Longoria distracted the photographers as Crow sneaked in from the back.
Longoria said: 'This was an evil plan. A friend of mine wanted to go to the restaurant (opening). She said, 'I want to go, I just don't feel the paparazzi tonight.'
'I said, 'You go in the back and I'll go out front and distract them.' I was like, 'What do I do?... I'll take them tacos.' Sure enough, I go out the front door and she went right in the back and nobody saw her. Then we did the same thing on the way out. I brought out dessert instead.'
