Have your 30s or 40s got you worrying that your glory days are over? Actress Eula Valdes is out to prove that, HELL, NO! At 42, she has the body and the beauty to make it on the cover of Cosmo's bro magazine FHM's July issue, arguably the biggest of each year, as it contains the 100 Sexiest Women In The World supplement, in which Eula ranks a good 46 (April 2011 Cosmo cover girl Sam Pinto is hailed No. 1!). They're holding a huge party for these Sexiest Women tomorrow, July 14, in World Trade Center--watch for our coverage!
Sexy as ever, this woman proves that age is just a number. "Hindi porke't you're turning 43, hindi mo na gagawin 'yung mga bagay na you used to do before... [Age] is just a state of mind, [and] nag-stop ako roon sa age na 21," she quips.
We can agree that she still possesses the body and face of a 21-year-old woman. When asked how she prepared for her risque cover, she replied, "Wala e. Siguro 'yung preparation ko is binawasan ko lang 'yung pagkain ko three days before [the shoot] pero 'yun lang."
And because she is admired by a lot of people, men especially, she had to seek permission from the two most important men in her life: her 16-year-old son and her boyfriend, Cosmo Centerfold Rocky Salumbides, who luckily gave their permission.
After all, if she's got it, why can't she flaunt it, right? Learn the beauty and body secrets of this gorgeous lady, so maybe you'll look just as fab when you reach your 40s.
Can you tell us your beauty secret?
Wala talaga e, contentment and confidence lang.
What makeup tricks do you swear by?
'Yung lips ko kasi gusto kong lagyan ng korte, so para fuller lips, minsan nilalampas ko ['yung lipstick]. And, ginagawa kong light 'yung sa gitna.
How do you maintain your figure?
Alam mo, lagi 'yang tinatanong sa'kin, kaya next time, 'yung goal ko is to work out.
What are your fashion essentials?
Jeans and shirt lang talaga. Minsan shorts. Pero 'yung sa baba, boots talaga. Kasi '80s 'yung fashion ko, era ko 'yun e, tapos ngayon bumabalik, so 'yun ginagamit ko. As for accessories, nagri-ring spiders ako, tapos 'yung goth.
What tips can you share with Cosmo chicks for becoming more desirable to men?
Don't think about it. Love yourself lang. Kasi 'pag inisip mo, wala rin. Tingnan mo 'yung iba, may mga features na hindi maganda alone pero 'pag pinagsama maganda naman, so ganoon lang talaga.
How do you handle admiration from men?
Sa lima kaming girls at dalawang guys na magkakapatid, ako lang 'yung girl na nakapunta sa co-ed school. E 'di ba 'pag exclusive, hindi mo pa alam paano mag-handle ng lalaki? Kaya I think 'yun 'yung advantage ko, na nag-co-ed. So 'pag may nag-a-admire, 'thank you' lang ako.
How do you feel about being named one of FHM's 100 Sexiest Women this year?
Surprised! Kasi hindi ako nag-campaign talaga, mga loyal supporters ko lang siguro 'yun. And I'm elated na second time ko na. Supposedly, kapag 45 years old na ako, saka ako ulit magpo-pose, pero na-advance ng dalawang years.
Did you have any conditions or requirements when you did this FHM shoot?
Actually, ako kasi, siguro sa photographer, ina-approve ko muna 'yung poses ko. Mas preferred ko nga na nude na lang than may damit na mukhang nude.
