A photo of actress Eva Longoria sharing a kiss with Belgian-Italian singer Lara Fabian is fake, the photographer behind the original photo claims.

The 38-year-old Longoria, who is best known for her role playing Gabrielle Solis on the ABC dramedy Desperate Housewives, and Fabian, 43, participated in French photographer Oliver Ciappa's campaign against homophobia, titled Les Couples Imaginaires (Imaginary Couples).

In their official photo for the campaign, the women are seen gently nuzzling up against each other.

In a photo not used in the campaign but posted on Facebook, Ciappa is sandwiched between the women as each kisses him on the cheek.

The rogue photoshopped photo removes Ciappa, leaving only the women sharing a kiss.

“I think it's super cute,” Ciappa said in a Facebook post. “I must admit that the picture works pretty good but it is a fake.”

Other “imaginary” gay couples taking part in the campaign include hunky French swimmers Florent Manaudou and Frederick Bousquet.
