“I was in bed for almost two days after this election, so I can’t imagine what she's feeling, you know?” Longoria told “Extra” host Mario Lopez in an interview published Monday.


“I was so devastated,” the prominent Clinton supporter added. "I can’t imagine what she feels.”

Longoria said "the people have spoken," and she accepts Trump’s victory. She hopes the Republican unites all Americans before taking office.

“I think it’s a time where our country needs to move forward ,and I hope that President-elect Trump understands he has to be the president for all Americans, not just the people who voted for him. I think that’s gonna take some effort to mend those wounds that some of these communities felt.”

Longoria added her personal encounters with Trump have shown her the billionaire is kinder than he may have appeared on the campaign trail.

“I’m also rooting for compassionate Donald to come out,” she said. "I actually knew him prior to all this, and I remember I had a fundraiser for one of my child farm worker documentaries in New York and we invited everybody in New York to come and he couldn’t come.

“He sent me a note and said, ‘I’m so sorry I can’t be there, I hope this helps,’” Longoria recounted. "It was a check donating to this charity…and that’s the Donald I knew and that’s the Donald I remember."
