So that final set where you let it all hang out really had to make you scream, didn’t it?
Ha ha ha! Oo. Kailangan talaga sobra! Because it’s the first time that I have ever done something like that. Iba pa rin ‘tong FHM— talagang nakaka-nerbyos!
What was running through your head? We were thinking that because you’ve been in showbiz for so long, nothing shocks you anymore. But you were shouting like...
Natakot ka ba?
It’s different kasi kapag tinitingnan mo lang sa magazine, and when ikaw mismo yung gumagawa. Even though there were only a few people in the room, hindi ko alam kung anong kinakatakot ko. Hindi ko alam. Iba, iba yung kaba na nasa akin. Sobra. Hanggang ngayon malamig ang kamay ko.
Are you saying that even though you’re a dancer and an actress you don’t know your body that well?
Oo. Ganun ako eh.
But aren’t dancers supposed to rehearse in front of a mirror?
I don’t see it that way eh. Kesehodang payat ako sa side na ‘to or mataba ako sa side na ‘to...I am not aware of that. I dance because that’s what I do. Dahil passion ko siya, hindi dahil sa sexy. I don’t know, maybe may pagka-manang talaga ako. Even my boyfriend tells me so. Maybe yun yung lumalabas kanina.
How will you be taking this when it comes out?
Ayyyyy! Ayun na! Diyos ko, nag-palpitate na naman ako. I don’t know. Bahala na!
It will be in convenience stores and bookstores everywhere.
Yes! But when Doc Marlon showed me the photos kanina, natuwa yung puso ko. I thought kasi baka masyadong sexy or bastos tingnan but when he showed me, I thought it was art. It made me comfortable.
