You last appeared inside our rag last February 2012. That’s a long time to not be doing a cover with FHM, don’t you think?
I know! I think I’m a lot more mature now, ha ha!
Mature in what way?
Well, my parents are super strict. Now I think I’m more independent and open to things. I have enough maturity to decide on important matters like this.
We’re that important?
Yeah, I think FHM isn’t just stripping off your clothes in front of a camera. The photos and the styling...it’s art. I really trust the talent of Doc Marlon [Pecjo]. He’s such a good photographer.
It’s always a pleasure working with a model as talented as you, and now it seems you’ve gotten even better with the way you project in front of the camera.
When I ?rst did a cover for FHM, I felt like I wasn’t ready physically. I was more “chubby cheeks” pa. Now, I feel like I’ve grown as a woman, and siyempre my features have changed. I first worked with you guys when I was 19! I’m 25 now, ha ha!
You’re making us feel old. Did you have any surprises planned for this shoot?
Um, oh yeah! I just had my hair cut—it was down to my waist before! They say shorter hair makes you look younger. I’m open to a lot of changes now.
Is it true girls tend to cut their hair after a breakup?
Oh my gosh! Ha ha! No. I mean, I’m single now. But you know what? I’m really happy with my life right now. I’ll be able to work on my career and how to better myself as a person. To try out different roles and projects, you know.
