The Desperate Housewives actress shocked sports fans by admitting that Tony Parker often fakes the extent of his pain.
Talking about watching him play for the San Antonio Spurs, she said: "Sometimes he acts to get the flagrant foul or, to sell the foul more, he'll throw himself on the floor and really play it up more than what it is.
"I really don't know what the difference is so I'm like: 'Stop laying on the ground if you're not hurt. Just get up!' He's like, 'Honey, I have to stay on the ground sometimes.'"
She added that she finds the uncertainty stressful, saying: "I get really nervous, it's nail-biting."
Longoria recently denied rumours that she is expecting a baby.
