After Lopez teased her about the relationship, the former Desperate Housewives star jokingly called him an "asshole" and playfully slapped him.

"No, Mark and I are, you know, fine," she said. "We're happy... just dating."

Longoria then changed the subject, saying: "You know what, I'm a big fan of the Jets because they have the best centre in the NFL, Nick Mangold."

The actress also spoke about her recent speech at the Democratic Convention, describing the chance to address delegates as "a privilege and an honour".

However, she added that she does not plan to run for political office herself, saying: "I think the power is in the citizen. It's kind of a myth that you can go, 'I can only be politically active if I'm a politician' and it's not [true] - we all have the power to vote, that's the real power."
