Marian Rivera will soon be seen in a provocative pictorial for a magazine -- her most daring yet, as she herself puts it.
“Itong Rogue [pictorial] ko, ito ang pinaka-daring kong nagawa ever. Ito na ang pinaka,” said she via PEP.
Not that it’s the only one.
“Hintayin n'yo kasi meron pa akong mas seksing pictorial na lalabas ngayong June. Actually, tatlong magazines na lalabas ito," she hinted.
Rivera went coy when asked if popular men’s magazine FHM is part of the list.
“Ang FHM, hindi naman yata nila ako in-invite ulit,” she said.
But she won’t refute the possibility.
“Tignan natin,” she said. “Malay ninyo pumayag na ako this time.”
Rivera related that she was more than willing to pose for Rogue given that the opportunity allowed her to work with people whose work she admires.
“Napapayag ako kasi, ang photographer, si Mark Nicdao. 'Tapos ang stylist ko si Pam Quiñones na malapit sa puso ko,” she shared. “‘Tapos nilatag nila sa akin ang konsepto. Sabi ko, why not, may tiwala naman ako sa kanila. Sabi ko, kailan ko pa i-ta-try?"
Asked if she had to ask for her boyfriend, Dingdong Dantes’ permission for the pictorial, Rivera said that she merely informed him about it but that she also made sure to send him copies of the pictures via e-mail.
“Ewan ko kung tiningnan niya,” said she.
In a separate interview, Dantes said Rivera did not have to ask for his consent for such projects.
“Alam ko naman na basta siya yung subject, kahit sa pag-pose niya, magagawa niya tastefully yun. Kumbaga, may tiwala ako sa kanya,” he said in an interview with PEP.
But what if Rivera pushes through with her plans to pose for FHM?
“Ah, magpu-pose raw ba siya sa FHM?” he asked. “Gusto ko siyang manalo [sa FHM 100 Sexiest Women Of The Year], pero, iba yung magpu-pose.”
Dantes jested that such a thing would happen only if he’d be the one taking the pictures.
“Joke lang, joke lang,” he said.
