Models are usually tasked to project a certain image for a brand they’re carrying. If Betina Beatrix was a brand, how would you describe it?
I’m like M&Ms: Hard on the outside but sweet on the inside. Ha ha!
Models are also often thought of as night owls and party-till-they-drop types. Do you fit that description?
I admit to having been like that, but now I have to look at things from a different perspective. I’m not getting any younger, ha ha! Sad to say but we (models) age, too.
Have you gotten used to the attention you get as a model?
Not yet, ha ha! It’s my boyfriend who should get used to the attention I’m getting. But he’s a great guy, he understands.
Can you describe yourself in Tagalog?
Ako po ay masungit! Ha ha!
Do you always give guys a hard time getting closer to you?
It’s like this: I may look mataray, but I’m friendly. Just don’t talk to me when I’m sleepy or hungry or you’ll get what you deserve, ha ha ha!
We hope your guy won’t mind us asking. Would you sleep with a guy on the first date?
Definitely not! But you should ask me who would make me do it, ha ha! Pharrell [of N.E.R.D.]!
