The long and the short of it! Eva Longoria, 5ft 2, and American comedian Joel McHale, 6ft 4, posed for hilarious photo at the NBCUniversal summer press day

She's a diminutive 5ft 2in, and he's an impressive 6ft 4in.

So when Eva Longoria and American comedian Joel McHale posed up at the NBCUniversal summer press day yesterday, it made for quite a funny picture.

Eva looked stunning in a figure-hugging red dress for the occasion, as Joel, wearing a denim shirt and black trousers, towered over her.

That's better: When comedian McHale sat on a stool, he was just the right height for Eva

Joking about the picture, Eva wrote on her Twitter page: 'Look who I found! Tall, white and handsome @joelmchale !!! Geez could he be any taller!

She later added: 'Okay to be fair im not wearing shoes and he's wearing heels!'

Joel later sat on a stool which made him just the right height to pose up properly with Desperate Housewives star Eva.

Eva was at the NBCUniversal summer press day to announce and promote her new relationship series, Ready For Love.

Looking for love: Eva supported her new show Ready For Love by wearing red

She acts as executive producer on the show, and drove its message by wearing the colour of love in her red dress.

The diminutive star, who is said to be back with her beau Eduardo Cruz, looked both sexy and professional in the well-cut, belted frock and a pair of simple black patent leather pumps.

Her brunette mane was blown out into perfect waves, and she kept her make-up simple.

The Golden Globe winner said today: 'This show is about making real connections and the ongoing search for love, something that both men and women can relate to.

'I am excited to be a part of such an innovative and promising format that will help these great guys find true love.'

Giuliana and Bill Rancic will host the programme, which follows three men who genuinely want to find love.

Three matchmakers will help the men find the women of their dreams.

The men include international financier Ben Patton, Plain White T's singer Tim Lopez and entrepreneur Ernesto Arguello.

Longoria, as well, is looking for love after splitting from boyfriend of more than a year, Eduardo Cruz, in March.
