Admit it: you fantasized about stripping Paulo Avelino of that towel wrapped around his waist in his 2011 Cosmo Centerfold debut. It's just been a year since his naughty Centerfold stint, but this rising young star has shown us that there's more to him than a really hot towel tease.
Paulo first made girls swoon when he joined the reality talent search program StarStruck along with Aljur Abrenica, Jewel Mische, Kris Bernal, and Martin Escudero. He later bagged major roles in the GMA-7 fantasy-suspense drama series Alakdana with up-and-coming actress Louise delos Reyes and in the award-winning movie Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow with stellar cast members Maricel Soriano, Gabby Concepcion, September 2009 cover girl Carla Abellana, Jericho Rosales, and more. He also took a daring turn as a frustrated college student who discovers the art of dance in the indie film Ang Sayaw Ng Dalawang Kaliwang Paa, which also stars April 2011 Online Hunk Rocco Nacino and Jean Garcia.
