We didn’t force you to do this, did we?
Of course not! Nagulat nga ako na you asked me to be on the cover of FHM. Kasi since January, lahat ng nasa cover ninyo—although most of them were teen stars—mga long-timer na sa showbiz. So even if may nagawa na akong projects, I still think I’m a newbie in this field, kasi hindi naman ako every day nakikita sa TV. It’s really flattering for me to do this.
We want you to become famous because we know you deserve it!
You know what, my handler asked me to go on a rush 10-day diet. I really had to motivate myself not to eat kasi super lakas ko talagang kumain. For 10 days ang kinakain ko lang oatmeal, wheat bread with peanut butter, and bananas. I worked out, and I also went to Dr. Calayan. Sana nga binigyan ninyo ako ng one month para talagang mas payat pa ako! Posing for FHM is a huge thing. I know for a fact na lahat ng nag-pose sa inyo, bumenta at naging okay ang career. And this is the first time I wore two-piece bikinis and lingerie for a magazine.
