In a recent interview, you mentioned that you take offense at being labeled a "bold" star. Why?
Because I'm really not. If I were a boldie, I'd be doing... more bold films! (laughs) And when I did Gatas, I didn't do it to create a big shebang. I showed my breasts because it was vital to the film, It wasn't para lang maipakita 'yung dede. I mean, my role there was a breastfeeding mom! Saan ka naman nakakita ng breastfeeding mom na hindi nagpakita ng dede? It wasn't like a step either to stardom or to "bold-dom."
Does this mean you're not going to do more daring stuff onscreen?
When some quarters labeled me as a boldie after Gatas, I got really turned off. I felt they were being so judgemental. I just did one movie, and it wasn't even that bold! But then, If a beautifully written script comes along where bodily exposure is required, I would probably still consider it. Right now It's really a case-to-case basis.
