DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES star Eva Longoria has laughed off reports she has a crush on PRINCE WILLIAM - as she insists she would hate to marry into the British royal family.

The 30-year-old actress was horrified by the furore surrounding the late Princess Diana's turbulent relationship with Prince Charles, and believes being romantically linked to a royal would bring similar heartache.

But the sexy brunette admits she has a fondness for British men - and would have no qualms hooking up with Star Wars hunk Ewan McGregor.

She says of Prince William, "He's good-looking and dinner might be fun, but I'd hate to marry into the British royal family because of what happened to Princess Diana.

"I do like British guys though. If I had to pick one it would be Ewan McGregor.

"I met him once and he was gorgeous even if he is a little short."
