INTERVIEW: ALLAN P. HERNANDEZ
PHOTOGRAPHY: BEN NOLLORA
Previously, the record holder for the fastest “undresser” was Viva Hot Babe Ella V. But you, Kuhdet, beat her by a stretch. How do you do it?
Nasanay na ako nang walang kiyeme-kiyeme kasi ganun din naman, eh, you will see it all anyway because I’m going to have to take all my clothes off so diretso na!
We presume a bit of shame would have been normal the first time.
Not really. I remember when I first decided I would go bold, I was herded directly into a pictorial, bale tatlo kami noon. Nakita ko silang nakahubad, medyo nahihiya pa nga sila, so naisip ko na okay lang kasi tatlo naman kaming hubad, at least the attention won’t be centered on just me. After that, the shoots became frequent hanggang sa nasanay na nga. Kaya nga minsan, halimbawa ganyang break, they would hand me a robe pero sinasabi ko, “hindi na, ganun din yun!”
How many seconds does it take for clothes to leave you?
Hindi naman seconds! Basta mabilisan hangga’t kakayanin! Huwag lang masikip at pahirapang tanggalin ang damit—paano ko bibilisan yun? Pupunitin ko na lang?!
For the record, we saw everything up north and down south, and down south is pretty barren. You shave!
Oo, lahat nga na-shave ko, eh! I have been doing this even before I entered show business.
What benefits do you get from a good shave?
Para siyang pam-baby, eh. It wasn’t like this before, it was a squarish strip but each time I shaved napapansin ko parang nauubos na kaya nilahat ko na.
