The 35-year-old actress - who filed for divorce from basketball star Tony Parker in November after almost three years of marriage - is still struggling to get to grips with establishing new routines and admits dealing with their separation is still "hard".
Eva - whose divorce was finalised in January - said: "I`m kind of having to find new patterns because I`m not used to having (so much time) -I`m used to always being on a plane and flying to a basketball game. It`s been, well, every time I talk about it, I want to cry. It`s been hard. Very hard. I`m just trying to get through it as gracefully as possible without any drama."
Despite the upheaval in her personal life, Eva - who has been romantically linked with Penelope Cruz`s brother Eduardo - insists she "welcomes" the changes still to come.
She told the new issue of Allure magazine: "I`m in a transition stage, settling into a new routine, and I welcome it."
Eva is best known for her role as glamorous Gabrielle Solis in drama series `Desperate Housewives` and the actress is particularly proud of the show for breaking stereotypes.
The brunette beauty - whose parents are Tejano, meaning Texans of Mexican descent - explained: "`Desperate Housewives` was groundbreaking for Latinos in television because the Solises were the richest people on the block - and they`re Mexican."
