Eva Longoria is ''happily single''.

The 38-year-old actress - who split from her second husband, basketball player Tony Parker, in 2010 after three years of marriage - insists she is ''busy'' making the most of freedom in her life while not in a relationship and has poured her focus into other areas.

She said: ''I'm happily single right now, very busy enjoying life.''

One of the reasons Eva is so content without a man in her life is down to her friends, who she can always rely on to cheer her up when feeling down as they are inseparable.

The former 'Desperate Housewives' star - whose most recent relationship, with Eduardo Cruz, ended last June - added in an interview with Britain's HELLO! magazine: ''My friends are always there for me. We've known each other for 20 years and I still see them almost every day because they live with me in LA.

''They're amazing. We cook together, laugh together; it's just always nice to come home to a home that is always full.''
