Eva Longoria and Toni Morrison Among Group to Advise President Barack Obama On Post-Presidency
Actress Eva Longoria and writer Toni Morrison join a select group of people to help advise President Barack Obama on what he should do after his presidency.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the two are said to have attended midnight meetings at the White House to discuss career options.
Longoria became a major political figure during Obama's presidency, especially when she she co-chaired his 2012 re-election campaign. The former "Desperate Housewives" star is also an activist for the administration's immigration reform plans.
In May 2012, Obama awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom to Morrison. The Medal of Freedom is the highest honor awarded to civilians in the United States.
Other post-presidency advisors include writer Malcom Gladwell, LinkedIn billionaire Reid Hoffman, and First Lady Michelle Obama. Director Steven Spielberg will help develop a technology "narrative" for Obama in the years after he leaves office, reported The New York Times.
