Pretend I’m a psychiatrist. Tell me about your family.
I’m the youngest. I have an older brother (Gracie ju-jitsu instructor Alvin Aguilar), and as I was growing up, I was really sheltered. Imagine, I had my father, my extra-overly protective mom (but not anymore), AND my brother. He was another parent to me. I was always struggling to be independent.

Has this deep-seated yearning for independence created some ghastly effect on your fragile psyche?
Okay, it’s like this: I was the sheltered girl from Alabang. In high school I couldn’t go out without our car, a driver, and a yaya. I couldn’t ride with any of my friends. I’d have to make takas all the time.In college, I was studying in faraway UP. After a while, my parents decided to get me my own place. Which was good. That taught me a lot. All of a sudden I had so much freedom. So it was a big change.

Were you the sort of kid who’d volunteer to sing songs at family parties?

No! I was so shy! If my kindergarten teacher finds out I’m now in showbiz she’d probably say, “What? Is that the same Drinie I taught?” Eventually I came out of my shell. I got into modeling at nine. I did print ads and fashion shows. Then I went to the States. When you go to a new school and meet new people, you can’t exactly be shy.
