We have one very important piece of information on Danica Laxamana: Should she catch you staring at her, don’t waste any minute. Go up and chat the lady, damnit!  Because such beauty as Danica is hard to resist. Any other dude knows that.

And should she catch him staring at her and he gets up to talk to her, well, pin your hopes to zero. Make sure you have Jeff Buckley’s “Lover, You Should Have Come Over” in handy. Play that song over and over again; that should mask the sound of your crumpling heart. And or the fact that you’re already banging your head to a wall. Sad scenario, ain’t it?

While it’s true her beauty is paralyzing, you must get a hold of yourself and snap back to reality. Then act fast. “Gusto ko kasi magtitinginan muna kami, tapos lalapit na siya. Kapag hindi siya lumapit magtitinginan na lang talaga kami!” Danica says.

So better man up, people. Use this May to practice looking at our pretty vixen in the eye. We volunteer ourselves to be your wingman!

How long have you been modeling?
I just started nung November 2010.

Did little Danica wanted to be a model ever since?
Oo. Pangarap ko talaga siya since nung bata pa ako. Feeling ko, sayang ang ganda ko! (Laughs) After high school, doon na talaga ako nag-decide na magmo-model ako. Sumasali kasi ako sa mga beauty competitions dati. And yes, nanalo naman ako. Isa na rin siguro sa nag-boost ng confidence ko yun.

Have you always been this confident?
Yung first na sali ko sa competition, kinakahaban pa ako talaga noon. Actually, hinabol lang ako. Nagpi-pictorial na sila tapos nagpunta lang kami doon. Na-experience ko talaga at first, exciting siya pero at the same time kinakabahan. Then noong second time ko nang sumali, wala na yung kaba. Manhid na ako. Ha ha!

And how did you make all those jitters go?
Siguro kasi yung first time pa lang, nanalo na agad ako. Kaya ang feeling ko, kaya ko silang lahat. I just stay to be positive, iniisip ko, panalo agad.

And today’s shoot was definitely different from what you’ve done before. Can we say this is, by far, the sexiest you’ve done?
Before kasi mga pa-cute lang, lalo na kapag pictorial sa mga beauty competitions. Then nung November, first time ko yun na magpa-sexy shoot, topless agad. Ako kasi, depende sa photographer and sa surroundings. Kapag feeling ko, kaya ko pa, go lang ako. Kapag nag-eenjoy ako itutuloy ko na. Bakit ko pa itatago?

Having such a very game attitude, do still have any inhibitions when it comes in doing sexy?
Okay lang kung top, pero kapag sa bottom part na, hindi na ko pa rin kaya. But if may mga shadow-shadow, baka kayanin ko pa.

There was quite a crowd watching you during the shoot. Did it bother you?
Okay lang. Before kasi nag-nude photography na ako sa isang workshop. Natutuwa rin naman ako kapag nakikita ko yung mga reactions nila, or kapag may naririnig ako na “ang galing niya, ang ganda niya.” Na-flatter din naman ako sa ganun. Actually, gusto ko i-try naman minsan yung outdoor. Wala pa kasi ako ganung shoot. Kahit anong layout, Carry!

You’re based in Pampanga, right? Don’t you find it hard since most of the go-sees and photo shoots are done here in Manila?
Nagyon kasi I’m based sa Angeles since I work in a hotel. Hindi naman ako na-hassle. Nae-enjoy ko rin naman yung travel. Minsan nga, kahit ako lang mag-isa tapos may go-see or project dito, kahit commute lang ako, pumupunta pa rin ako.

So you work in a hotel, any incident where a certain hotel guest tried to hit on you?
Meron din naman. Pero actually palagi akong may crush dun kasi minsan may mga guest din kami na gwapo na dadating kaya ako, “Hi sir!” Ako na yung nagvo-volunteer na mag-accommodate. Kaya minsan yung mga officemates ko, kapag nakita nila na guwapo, sinasabihan nila ako na “ikaw na, ikaw na.” Pero hanggang ganun lang. Minsan ini-add na lang nila ako sa Facebook, nagugulat na lang ako alam nila yung pangalan ko.

Moving on, can you share some of your interests when you’re not too busy being a model?
Gustong-gusto ko yung kumakanta and sumasayaw. I often go out with my friends sa mga gimikan, especially kapag Saturday night, mag-clubbing na kami.
