When you've got a body like that of Regine Angeles, there's really nothing you can complain about. "Kumakain ako ng marami pero hindi ako tumataba," she gushes. How we wish we can say the same! But then, she wasn't named the 19th sexiest woman in the world this year by our bro mag FHM Philippines if she was anything but extraordinary.
Regine believes she has FHM to thank for helping her showbiz career. "Nakatulong [ang FHM] kasi before hindi nila alam 'yung name ko, they see me pero hindi nila alam ang name ko." But, thanks to her making their top list and her April FHM cover, Regine has become even more familiar to Pinoys than when she first entered showbiz through ABS-CBN's Bench model search.
We'll give you the chance to know more about Regine, including her secret to staying sexy and beautiful beyond the genes she's been blessed with. Read on for the full interview.
What are your beauty rituals? Can you tell us your beauty secret?
I get eight hours of sleep. Tapos 'yung makeup, I take it off before going to sleep. Sa face, soap tapos minsan baking soda. Minsan din before magka-period, nagkaka-pimples ako but I just let it be. Tapos nag-supplement din ako para pumuti, para mukhang artista. Effective naman.
What makeup products can't you leave home without?
Powder and tint. And pinapanindigan ko talaga ang red lipstick kasi siyempre sa'ting girls, kahit red lipstick lang, parang nagbibigay na rin ng confidence 'di ba?
How do you maintain your figure?
Genes talaga siya. Nagkaproblema pa nga before kasi akala nila may hypothyroidism ako; kumakain kasi ako ng marami tapos hindi ako tumataba. Tapos 'yung mukha ko pa payat. Pero 'di ba 'pag artista, pumapayat din 'pag stressed?
What are your fashion essentials?
Basta comfortable lang talaga, 'yung jeans, shirt, ganun.
What tips can you share with Cosmo chicks for staying sexy, not skanky?
Thin line nga 'yung sexy and skanky. I think kailangan mo malaman na dapat classy and not skanky—kung para sa art 'yun or art 'yung dating, sexy siya. Pero 'pag kacheapan na, 'wag na gawin.
How do you feel about being one of FHM's 100 sexiest women?
