WASHINGTON (AP) — Actress Eva Longoria says her speech to the Democratic convention will be very different from Clint Eastwood’s speech to Republicans.

Longoria tells NBC’s “Today” there will be no empty chairs.

Eastwood gave a bizarre and rambling address last week at the GOP convention, talking to an empty chair as he pretended to converse with President Barack Obama.

Longoria says she has, quote, “been in the trenches” campaigning for Obama. The “Desperate Housewives” star is a co-chair for Obama’s re-election bid.

She says her narrative will be very different from Eastwood’s when she addresses the convention Thursday.
