Cosmo Online Hunk Andrew Wolff: Meet Your Online Romeo

The Philippine Volcanoes heartthrob will make you fall head over heels this Love Month! The rugby player is hot, hot, HOT--whether chilling in the bedroom or all dressed up for a date.

Single or coupled-up this Valentine season, you have at least one reason to celebrate the Love Month: a hot new Cosmo Online Hunk in the person of Philippine Volcanoes' Andrew Wolff! Single or coupled-up, he'll definitely make your heart flutter with his hot photos and interesting answers to his exclusive Cosmo interview, every Wednesday of February!

Andrew's not new to Cosmo chicks (he was Cosmopolitan Hunk of the Month way back in 2005), but we're definitely going to show him in a new light as a romantic Romeo who could very well be your fantasy date. You may also recognize Andrew from his modeling days back then, his TV gigs, and currently his games with his fellow Philippine Volcanoes, the country's national rugby team.

Andrew owes his good looks to an interesting mix of genes: "I’m 1/16 German, 7/16 English, and half-Mangyan," he says with a laugh. "I'm half-Filipino," he adds. Born and raised in England (to a Filipino mom and an English dad), he decided to make the Philippines his current home.

What you may not have seen yet is the rather outgoing person underneath that ripped, rock-hard bod and pretty boy face. Just like going out on a first date with a new guy, we put Andrew through the 20 Questions so you can get to know him better. Don't forget to click through his first batch of gorgeous photos!

1. When were you born?

I was born on July 13, 1985.

2. How old are you?

I’m 26 years old, and that’s not a screen age, that’s my real age. You can check that at the NSO if you want (laughs).

3. When and how did you get started in showbiz?

I came over to the Philippines, well, my dad came over to the Philippines eight years ago. I was then studying in UK, in Bristol, and then I came over, enjoyed it and met someone (laughs), went back to the UK, came back, and then stayed for a couple of reasons, and my dad is also here. So I stayed, and I started modeling.

4. How old were you then?

I was 20 years old. Actually, I modeled before, when I was 18 years old, the first time I came back after a long period of time, like 14 years. I did a few commercials, went back and studied again, but then I stayed here in 2005 and kind of nasangkot sa showbiz, parang ganun.

5. Have you always wanted to be in showbiz?

Um no, it was never a dream of mine. It was never an intention. I never planned this, I didn’t come to the Philippines to go into showbiz, I didn’t even come to play rugby. But you know, I play rugby for the Volcanoes, since 2007, so the sporting world and the showbiz world kind of connected through media. But, I didn’t plan this. Hi, guys, anyway (laughs).

6. How did you get into rugby as a sport?

Actually I started playing football or soccer at the age of 3 with my dad, 'cause my dad’s a hard core football fanatic, basically. And you know, I played in school, I was team captain. But then I went to Woodridge School, a rugby school. Usually all schools in England play rugby, so I converted to rugby 'cause that was the sport that they generally play in the autumn season. I kept the football going but I started [rugby] at the age of 10 or 11 and continue to play it.

7. Is rugby your number one sport?

When people ask me, “Is rugby your first sport?” actually it’s not, but I continue to play, I play more of it now. When I came to the Philippines, there wasn’t a football team--well, there was a female football team--but you know, the Azkals weren’t around yet, and I played more rugby, so I stuck with rugby. I love rugby.

8. What do you think is sexy about your sport?

There’s nothing sexy about our sport (laughs). You know the first impression people get about rugby; rugby football this is not the rugby you buy in 7-Eleven (laughs). The first impression people get about rugby is it’s just hurting each other, it’s a sport where we just beat each other. There’s a lot of rules in rugby and it’s very technical. When it comes to the sexy side, there’s nothing sexy about it. Nah (laughs). Maybe the fans, some of the fans.

9. What do you love most about the Philippine Volcanoes?

The thing I love about the team is, you know, even though majority are not actually based in the Philippines--'cause you know, a lot of them are playing high level in different countries and we haven’t developed a local league yet in the Philippines, which is at a high level--even though some grew up in the States, some grew up in England, Wales, Australia, New Zealand, they still have that Pinoy heart and they still have the culture. That’s what I like about the team.

10. How are you like as a team?

When we get together, it’s like a big family. There’s no jealousy, it’s like a brotherhood and even if we’ve grown up in different countries and experienced different things from different walks of life, the good thing about the Volcanoes is we’re all brothers and it’s a really good, we jell really well as a unit. Whether you are on the bench or you start, everyone’s treated equally, there’s no “I’m better than you," it’s not like that. Everyone is generally nice.

11. What other talents do you have?

Talents, wow. I’m not really a talented guy, actually. I’m a frustrated singer, my voice is terrible. I try to dance a little.

12. Name one thing few people know about you.

One thing people don’t know about me, I started playing violin when I was 9. Basically in England there’s a royal association for music and there are eight grades, and I got to Grade 6. Unfortunately, when I was 18 or 19, I started thinking, “Ah, this is not cool.” And I just dropped my violin. But you know, that was such a bad idea. So guys, if you’re playing an instrument, please continue because it’s a really good thing to have. And I plan to continue, hopefully when I get time, you know. That’s probably worth it.

13. What’s a typical day like for you?

Well, at the moment, wow, I really work everyday. I go to my office, well, I try to go to my office at 9AM, sometimes a bit late. That’s Monday to Friday, 9 to 6, sometimes even Saturday if I had to catch up on work. And Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, I play rugby and I coach beginners on Monday and Wednesday. I play with my local team Saturdays, like a proper game. And what else? In between that, I play futsal, like indoor football. And I try to do some guestings on the side (laughs).

14. Really, you teach rugby? Where?

It’s two-in-one, it’s great: I get to train and to coach at the same time all the beginners at Ultra.

15. Do you have any current TV shows or showbiz projects?

The last thing I did was Praybeyt Benjamin with sina Vice Ganda and Derek Ramsay. I was the terrorist, basically, so if you didn’t get to watch it, buy a real DVD. Yeah, that’s the last showbiz thing.

16. How did you prepare for this shoot?

I did some yoga, I did some stretching (laughs). I didn’t really prepare for this shoot.

17. Did you work out extra hard or did you follow a strict diet?

Well, the thing is, my lifestyle is very active. So it’s not a case of preparing if I’m shooting something like this with, you know, showing a few things that I’m not usually showing, like abs and stuff. I have an active lifestyle, I play rugby, I go to the gym all the time. It’s kind of easier. My abs are not amazing, but there’s no fat. I’m not building myself up (laughs), I’m just saying it’s part of my lifestyle. So it’s cool.

18. This isn't your first time to pose for Cosmo, is it?

No, I did Hunk of the Month in 2005, like October or something (laughs).

19. How does it feel to be back in Cosmo?

I feel amazing! But I don’t think I’m a hunk. It’s an honor and a privilege, and I just wanna thank you guys for inviting me and considering that I’m a hunk, wow! That’s amazing, Cosmo pa.

20. How do you feel about being our February Cosmo Online Hunk?
You’re the number one magazine and to be an Online Hunk, it’s great because social network is big now in the Philippines. So you know, we can reach out to a lot more people at a lower cost.
